This is an early Century flat top (not to be confused with the more recent standard model). I really like this bass, but I am still trying to thin the herd and this one is next to go. The bass is in excellent shape, just a tiny wear in the "slap" area. The Demeter pre is very smooth with a tight and crispy sound. This bass has punch, with very clean lows and bright highs. The single coil is more similar to a jazz bass but with less bottom (the placement of the pups is very determinant for the sound. The roscoe basses have the neck pup placed closer to the bridge than most of the "standard" traditional basses). Specs: Ash body Bubinga (water fall) top. Maple neck with Ebony FB. String spacing: 19mm Special hardware black/chrome Demeter preamp. Original Bartolini pups. It has a single switch for parallel/single/series. Totally shielded because of the single coil mode (pups cavities are not shielded from the shop). Q bandwidth switch For sale for $1650 shipped (CONUS) Will consider trades. Priority will be given to trades that can net me some cash. Feel free to contact me for additional pics or any questions.
