  1. For sale is my beloved Fender Roscoe Beck 5 string in shoreline gold. S/N dates it to 1998. All stock except for a fender string retainer I had added for the E and B strings to prevent the E string from rattling in the nut. A few small scratches in clear coat near the bridge, nothing that goes through to the wood. Original Fender tweed hard case included. Extremely versatile and sweet sounding. Only selling because of financial hardships (the taxman cometh!:crying:).
    Asking 1100$ US shipped to North America, possible international with shipping cost evaluation.
    Not much interest in trading except for a Markbass head plus cash.
    Feel free to ask any questions.
    Pics to come.

  4. I found some scratches on the back and two shallow dents on the bottom edge by the jack. I'll drop the price to 1100$ US shipped to reflect this. Here are pics of the ''damage''.

  6. Man, as much as I'd like to spend the tax return on this guy, I'd surely have a permanent place on the couch if I did. Bump for a super sweet bass though . . .

    I've always thought those basses looked killer. Good luck with the sale

    Bump for a great bass...I recently got one, and am blown away by the pitch integrity of the B string - I've compared it directly with Sadowsky and Low End 5-strings, and conclude this is THE champion 34" B-string of all time, from bottom to top.
  10. Yes, it's a great bass!
    Piano like jazz clearness, but I find myself gravitating more towards a p or pj sound.
    I'll miss her though if she sells.:(

  12. Not sure about the weight, I don't have a bathroom scale.
    But I can say it's definitely not a featherweight bass, feels heavy (and solid), probably around 11 or 12 pounds (I may be overestimating).
    Certainly Lakland jazz copies are lighter from my experience, as is my MPG Level 5.
