    It is time to reduce my collection of basses although they are all "Keepers". Not one of them is less than exceptional but I have too many so here goes............

    This Roscoe SKB Custom 5 string has a beautiful Bubinga top and sweet clear gloss finish. It has a bird's eye maple fingerboard and a swamp ash body. It is in very nice gently used condition and comes with the original hard case and all paperwork and tools. The bass weighs 8 pounds, 14 ounces and is a joy to play. The Bartolini PU's and electronics work perfectly and the tone is fantastic. That Roscoe growl and an amazing B string. It has a new set of the OEM D'Adarrio strings on it and is professionally set up and ready to go. It is a killer bass but I am playing 6 string basses and this beauty needs a new home.

    The last two photos are perhaps more representative of the actual color of the Bubinga. It has a very pretty top. Bubinga is not presently offered as a top by Roscoe, however, allowing $600 for the top and including other options this bass would retail for $5200 with the case. Street price would be about $4160.

    Shipping in the lower 48 is included in the price. Please start a conversation if you have questions. I am really needing to reduce my collection so trades are not wanted unless you tempt me beyond my ability to resist!
