    I picked this up on here back in mid-February. I believe this is an earlier Century Standard model with the Hipshot A-style bridge, which has adjustable spacing. Ash body, 3-piece maple neck, maple fingerboard. "CB" Bartolini pickups and 18V Bartolini, 3 band EQ (switchable mid-freq), volume and blend with adjustable gain right on the cavity cover. The usual Roscoe 35" scale. Great lows and low mids on this one. That's what Roscoes are for, right?

    I had a local carpenter friend make a couple finger ramps. There's only one installed, but there's two that will be included with the bass if the buyer is interested.

    I'll include a hard shell case or Roscoe gig-bag. Take your pick.

    The bass isn't in mint condition (I think I'm the 3rd or 4th owner), but everything listed is cosmetic and not visible from the front. There is some marring on the finish on the back of the body and along the side of the neck near some of the frets. There's also a small dent on the side near the jack. Otherwise this bass is in really great shape. Easy to set up.

    Selling because I recently bought another Roscoe (CS+J 6 string!) with different woods and pickups. Wasn't sure which I would like best, but I've decided to keep the newer one.

    $1600 shipped in the Continental US, paypal works best. EDIT: Partial, semi-specific trades + cash now maybe accepted. ;)

    Still would like to net around $1K in a trade, but let's see what you got. Looking for:

    NS Design NXT electric upright
    Aguilar TH500
    Aguilar SL112
    Epifani UL-112 (preferably Series I)
    EHX Micro Pog
    Boss RC-30 loop station
    higher end delay pedals
    pedal power supplies
    pedal cable patch kits (George L, Planet Waves, etc)
    Maybe a nice tele or hollow body guitar (but it would take some convincing) :cool:

    Really not looking for any other basses or amps at the moment. Still gotta pay for my newer Roscoe.
     
  2. Wow, that's a great price for a great instrument! I would normally wish "Good luck with the sale," but I can't imagine this will remain in the Classifieds section for long. I'm sure someone will scoop it up rather quickly.

    bump!

    This is a great instrument for the price. For me, the extended upper horn on the Century series really makes the difference, especially on a strap.

    You won't find one this cheap again anytime soon! :)
     
  9. I was one of the previous owners. Bass plays perfect. I wish I could get it back but can't foot the cost right now. I might have a few sound clips from when I had it if anyone's interested.

    Bump for a great TB'er to deal with and IMO the best playing 6 available!

    ..... You'll be hard pressed to find a lower price for a Roscoe 6!
