I decided to post a new thread about my third Roscoe bass. I am soooooooooo happy with the Imbuia Burl bass I purchased from Jay, not to mention the great service. Since I have GAS all the time, I decided recently it was time for another bass. I currently own a Ken Smith Black Tiger Elite, Two Spector USA NS5XL's, and a Roscoe SKB Imbuia top. After contemplating for a few days, I decided on another Roscoe. Gard keeps me in the loop on the exotic woods, and about two months ago he sent me images of some new Imbuia Burl that came in. After the Roscoe decision had been made, the specifics for the new bass followed. Here they are: SKB 3005 Imbiua burl top Alder body-translucent amber burst finish on back of body Bartolini 3-band preamp Black hardware Diamondwood nut Wedge neck (with Bolivian rosewood & rosita combo) Bolivian rosewood fingerboard-NO sapwood Oval inlays Custom case BTW, JOME77, unreallllllllllllll spalted maple top. Just incredible! E.T.A. sometime in September. Hang tight, some preliminary pics will be posted shortly. I am going to try and post some pics of some of the other bodies Jay has available. No, I'm not on his payroll. I am just one very satisfied customer!
