    Selling my Roscoe 5 string bass because I don’t play as much and fallen back in love with 4 strings. In excellent condition. I have had 6 Roscoe’s over the years and this particular one is INCREDIBLE. You wont be let down. Has high gloss finish bringing out the intense colors of the unique woods. No nicks, dings or belt buckle rash at all that I could find. NONE! Absolutely OUTSTANDING condition. Probably could user a little bit if frets shined up since it has been in my closet. The other cool thing is the custom pickup covers and control knobs are satin finish setting them apart from the gloss body. They cost an extra 600.00 to make. Neck is also smooth satin. I took shots in daylight and indoor light so you can get a good idea of the colors. Bid with confidence with over 750 positive feedback rating on eBay.

    · High end woods – Buckey burl top, swamp ash body, pin striping laminate, I believe the fretboard wood is called Veeza

    · Lots of expensive upgrades like matching pickup covers+ headstock + control knobs.

    · Loaded withBartolini pickups and 3 band active eq with bass, mid & treble controlschanges your tone immediately on the fly. Midrange knob pulls out for 2 separate midfrequencies.

    · Scrolling pickup selector gives you any tone quickly.

    · Midrange frequency knob pulls out to make it a double frequency and iscritical to cut thru the mix and gives you 2 completely different mid toneswhen you boost the mids. The higher yourmid is turned up the more the switch changes the frequency.

    · Purpleheart tonebar gives stability.

    · Low ultra easy action with plenty of room for slapping.

    · This bass getsserious tone and any sound you want between the woods, active EQ and dual midrangeknob.

    · Comes with molded Roscoe case. (not the black one in a few of the pics)
    · Lightweight woods. Swamp ash wood which is the body by nature is very light which helps for those long gigs.

    · Selling locally so could go at any time.

    · Outstanding condition with no dings or scratches I could find!

    · I’m in no hurry to sell so not interested in lowballs. I have had this listed twice then took it off. We all have those basses thatgot away – this one will be that for me.

    I bought it when it was slightly used so don't know the year. I think maybe 3-4 years old and although I need to shine up the frets a bit, the rest looks absolutely brand new. I keep all my toys in excellent shape. This has barely been played outside my man cave.

    35” Scale? String Spacing? Bartolini Electronics? Weight? Woods?

    thank you and in absolutely outstanding shape. Buckeye burl has always been my favorite wood and THIS bass may be the one I regret letting get away. It just doesn't get played enough so it has to go.

    swamp ash body. buckeye burl top. maple neck with purple heart tonebar. I believe the fretboard is called "veeza" but not positive. Pickups Bartolini. Neck scale is 35 inches. Weight is light - not a factor probably cuz swamp ash is a really light wood.
