FS/FT Roscoe LG3000 Spalted Maple

Discussion in 'For Sale: Bass Guitars' started by LightGroove, Sep 26, 2008.


  1. Hey now,

    Just picked this beauty up last week from TBER Bking. Words can't describe the detail and quality of this bass. Anyways I'm struggling with a little buyers remorse. Mostly in the fact that I am debt free and well this may put me a little behind after working so hard. Please don't take this as desperation and low ball it.

    Anyways the bass is in excellent condition. It was purchased new from TPB back in June. I've looked it over and can't find a blemish. She hasn't left my home since I purchased it.The body is ash and the top spalted maple with matching headstock. It weighs in around 7.5 +/- lbs and balances nicely. The electronics are the Bart/Bart setup. Very punchy and throaty growl. I actually favor the tone of this over my previous Roscoe.The action is crazy low with very little fret wear. Bass also come with a Roscoe hardshell case.

    I've got $1900 in it and would like the same in an outright sale.

    I'm open to trades for basses (bass + cash) ...no gear

    I'm up for anything active and 4 string ..fretted.. 34" scale.

    I may be willing to part ways for the right 5 string as well

    More pics upon request..

    Blessings

    I'd feel the same way .... buyers remorse has gotten me many a time; but since your debt free .... give yourself a cookie (in the form of this STUNNING ROSCOE :D)

    Unless it's growing now it is 7.3 lbs.
    The Fingerboard is very very bright colored wenge board ,and sounds awesomely warm. Havnen't seen any other roscoe sounds warmer than her, and also the top is one of the best.

    Good luck
     
  19. Thanks Youngs...Yes your description is right on.. Things are starting to lean heavily in the keeping her column unless I get overwhelmed.

    :bassist:
