    Opening this up for sale from this thread: FT Feeler: Roscoe SKB-3005

    And here's the thread where I acquired this bass: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f126/fs-ft-2007-roscoe-skb3005-811862/

    This is a great bass that plays and looks stellar. My problem? It keeps sitting second-string to my Sadowsky MV5. Despite it's great looks, playability and sound, I'm more acclimated to the neck diminsions and string spacing of the Sadowsky. I also find myself preferring the Sadowsky pre.

    So...guess what I'm looking for? That's right, a Sadowsky. An NYC 24-5 to be exact (maybe, just maybe a Metro but that's a BIG MAYBE). About the only thing I can think of that I don't want is a 5-24 that has anything besides the Sadowsky soapbars in it; not interested in Big Singles or other pickups. I'm not interested in any other basses at this time. This would obviously be a transaction requiring the addition of cash on my end (unless we went the Metro route, of course).

    As for cash price? I'd like to get $2200 shipped CONUS only (or best reasonable offer) through a fee-less payment but I'm open to discussion regarding exact payment method.

    The specs:
    Model: 2007 SKB-3005
    Top: Exhibition Grade Cocobolo
    Body: Spanish Cedar
    Finish: Natural Gloss
    Preamp: Bartolini 3-Way/18V
    Pickups: Bartolini
    Neck: 3-piece all quartersawn maple/purpleheart/maple bolt-on neck with single-action trussrod and dual graphite rod reinforcement
    String Spacing: Standard 18mm
    Fingerboard: Exhibition Grade Cocobolo, Fretted
    12th Fret Inlay: Standard
    Nut: Diamondwood
    Hardware: Black
    Case: OEM Hardshell
    Weight: 9.2 lbs on the bathroom scale

    Worth mentioning:
    Pickups show some string wear
    Small ding on the top by where your forearm rests
    Tuner for the A-string has abrasion along one side
    Slight wear visible on the bridge
    Original knobs replaced with cocobolo knobs - originals retained and bass will ship with both included
