    Greets folks, though it's not official without pics, I couldn't help pulling the bass off the truck at work instead of waiting until it was delivered at Mom and Dad's a block away.

    The finsh and the top live up to expectations, but I can't plug it in till I get home.


    Pics hopefully tonight.

    ** I'm bit of a noob at posting pics, but here's a few links. Gard wasn't kidding when he said this color was hard to photo!!**

    Having been the guy that plugged it in before it was packed and shipped to the dealer: Yes, yes it is a fine sounding bass.

    Hi folks, thanks for the entheusiasm!

    The Roscoe is going away to a spa in N. Carolina for a chemical peel, a massage, you know, relaxing stuff.

    I promise, now as a Roscoehead, to post pics as soon as she gets back. Really good ones too!
