    For sale: Good as new Roscoe SKB Standard fretless with mahogany body, amazing Monkey Pod top and lined Bird’s Eye Maple Diamondwood fingerboard. This bass sings and is the nicest bass I have ever owned (or will own). Unfortunately it seems that I am a 4-string guy and don’t play this nearly enough to justify keeping it. I had this custom made and have played it sparingly at home over the past 6 months (finished and received in June 2013).

    Due to a recent price increase for Roscoes, this bass would be nearly $3000 new. Asking $2300 shipped.

    Bass will be packed and shipped with the help of a bass-shipping pro.

    Sorry, no trades.

    A great wood combination and one of the nicest looking "Standards" I've seen anywhere.
