    I am going through a period where I want to start trying high end* basses and I started with this Roscoe. With that in mind, I have decided to sell this and try out something else.

    First off, this is a great bass, but as stated above, I want to move this along only because I need to try other high end makers. The CB Barts are sweet and can get very aggressive, especially with a little mid boost.

    I am pricing this at $1499 plus shipping in a really nice original gig bag.


    Feel free to run trades past me, but I only want to go up in tier. Looking especially at Spector, Warwick, Sadowsky Metro, Elrick, Lakland, Xotic and other Jazz type basses + cash on my end as needed. Trade Value is about $1800. Four (4) strings preferred please. Really would like to try a Sandberg California as well.
