    Roscoe LG3005

    Top: Redwood (Exhibition Grade $400)
    Body: Ash
    Neck: Maple/Purpleheart/Maple
    Finderboard: Highly figured Birdseye Maple (Upgrade $175)
    Pickups: Bartolini Classics
    Preamp: Demeter – Your Pick! (Upgrade $260)
    Tuners: Gotoh
    Nut: Handcarved Graphtec

    In the words of my friend Bootsy, “This bass is Roscoe-licious baby!”

    Guaranteed to make the Choir Sing – Hallelujah

    It will give the Rockers something to bang their head over!

    This bass can Rock, it can be a Funk Machine and it can get a little dirty like the girl your momma warned you about! The Bart Classics really opens up the tone on this bass. The Ash body produces Plenty-O-Punch. There is so much Birdseye on the Fingerboard Alfred Hitchcock would re-write “The Birds”. The Exhibition Grade Redwood Body is beautiful! It has Quilt, Burl and Flames Stripes that would make Tony the Tiger jealous.

    Now for the serious, this is a sweet playing bass, nice straight neck, low low action. It plays and sounds like a dream.

    All this Beauty in a Bass for the low price of $2200 shipped in a Roscoe Form Fit Case. Like anything else in life, the price has a little negotiating room.

    For some good pictures, click the link and behold the beauty!!!

    I have played this bass and I promise this is one of the best bass I have ever played. I have owned over 17 basses including two Fodera's, Roscoes, LEJ, Yamaha, Ibanez, Tobias, and this bass is by far one of the best. I wish I could afford to purchase it!! I do have bass for trade Crash??? Also bump for a great, great guy to do business with. I can assure you that Crash knows his Roscoes and will offer great details on your thread also. Please don't hesitate to give this one a try!!!!!

    SMPUGH, I know you love this bass and I wish it would go to you. The only other Roscoe that I have played that can compare to the feel of this bass would be one of Gard's, but he has the 6 strings. The action on this bass is just so sweet, I hate to part with it.

    WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT!?

    Folks, I was the original owner of this bad boy and sold it to Clint so there's no long line of changing hands here. It's just as Clint described, an absolute stank machine that can hit that infamous "brown note" that makes peoples faces turn up like "DAAAAAAAAAAANG". And as is the case with just about any Roscoe, the pictures come nowhere close to doing it justice.

    Clint... that ache you feel is the same ache I felt when I let this one go.

    Someone is gonna get a great deal on a fantastic bass here!

    I dunno, but it'll likely have a "Fighting Irish" sticker on the pre amp cover. . . :bag:

    That would be a "Hawkeyes" sticker. . . and before anyone says anything, I'm a fan so I'm allowed. :rollno:
