    Edit: will trade for a very nice Roscoe 5 string with Bart Electronics. Can add money for right bass

    Possibly other high end Basses...

    This bass has 1 of the nicest tops I;ve ever seen and just returned last week from the Roscoe Shop where Keith done their famous Plek job and set it up to perfection. The tone and playability of this bass is amazing. It has a Ash body and Cocobolo top along with Aguilar DCB pickups and OBP-3 Preamp. This bass also has what Keith said was a limited run of fretboard wood using a Wenge Sapwood. The bass is as close to mint in every way and plays and sounds better than she looks. It weighs a little over 9.5 pounds according to my digital scale.

    Trades 5 string only:
    Roscoe with Bart system oor Nordstrand DC pickups.

    Would you accept $2600 plus shipping or are you firm about trade only?
  4. Didn't you just sell the Roscoe Bart's from one of these?

    Beautiful... I'm also seriously wondering if the electronics can be swapped out, would the Barts fit in there?

    Yes the standard Roscoe bart electronics would work on this bass and be exact fit.

    Just to make sure I've got things correct: this unicorn is back on the market? As in, for sale?

    Lots of trade offers and interest but it’s still available.

    You're a bad man. Oh well, marriage is over-rated anyway, right? Let me see what I can do.
