    I am the 2nd owner of this Fender Roscoe Beck in Lake Placid Blue (with a little sparkle in it, see pics), with matching headstock, IMO, this bass is in brand new condition. Comes with an extra Cream Pearloid pickguard.
    The Roscoe Beck Bass IV is built to Roscoe's specs and choice of some very cool refinements: an assymetrical oval neck, a special design Modern-Vintage body, Hipshot ultralight tuners, Drop-D tuner on E string, special design Side By Side humbucking pickups, and a Fender 4-saddle locking convertible bridge. Extensive tone controls include Master Tone with push/pull mid-shaping switch, 3-position pickup selector, and 2 mini-toggle coil-selector switches. A unique pickguard and and neckplate with engraved Roscoe Beck signature announces its pedigree.

    The Roscoe Beck Fender basses are wonderful. I have an RBV in Candy Apple Red and an RBIV in see through red. Both of mine have Pau Ferro finger boards although Fender specs say the RBIV has rosewood. Nope...mine is Pau Ferro.

    Someone is going to get a great bass.

    Oh yeah, what a Beauty.
    I was looking for exactly that one, or a honeyburst on this side of the pont. But no luck. In the end, I got a 3TS.
    Sounds awesome.

    My RB4 has a Pau Ferro finger board as well. While actually my RBV looks like it is more rosewood. But AFAIK all RBV hat Pau Ferro.

    If I was you, I'd keep it.
