  1. Time for a change. Selling my LG3005. Here are the details:

    Serial #3243
    Top: Exhibition Quilt Maple
    Body: Swamp Ash
    Bart 2-band Pre
    Fingerboard: Bolivian Rosewood

    In pretty much pristine condition. There are two tiny dings that are the only blemishes. One is on the edge of the fingerboard at around the 9th fret. About 1/8" but doesn't affect playability. The other is on the body around the master volume knob, also about 1/8". I've tried to show them in pictures but they are very difficult to see from more than a few inches. Other than that this bass is in great shape. The playability is outstanding and the B-string sound is out of this world.

    Looking for [DEL]$1900[/DEL] [DEL]$1800[/DEL] $1700 shipped to lower 48. Comes with and will be shipped in Roscoe soft-shell case.

    Let me know if you have any questions. Probably not looking for any trades unless it is a similarly priced jazz.








  2. Price drop: $1800
  3. Another price drop: $1700

    It looks like the strings are set closer to the g string side of the fret board. Is this an illusion due to the angle of the picture? Awesome bass, great price.
  5. I think the shape of the headstock makes the bass tilt to the right a bit when laying on a flat surface, plus I think the picture is from a bit of an angle. That might make it appear as such. I can take more pictures if this is a real concern but I've certainly never had any playability issues with the bass.

    Thanks for the compliment!
  6. Bump.

    Does this have the carved top or the flat top?
  8. I'm actually not too familiar with that option, so I'll say for sake of being overly cautious that it is the flat top since I believe the carved option would be a higher end option? Maybe Gard might be willing to chime in on this?

    Looks to be a carved top to me. I think the flat top would a considered the Standard models, which were not available 5 or 6 years. Any interest in a trade?

  10. I'm open to trades. Mainly looking for equally valued jazzes but feel free to run anything by me. Don't mind money coming from my end.

    Yep, that's a LG3005 which has the carved top. The LG2005's had the flat top.
    That one has the scarf joint for the angled headstock and the Wilkinson bridge so it's an older model but still a top end Roscoe from the same era as my first Roscoe.
    Also the Wilkinson bridge has sliding bridge saddles so the string spacing is fully adjustable.

    Bump for a killer bass!
  12. Thanks for the info, Joe!

    Joe's already been, as usual, my "thunder" has been stolen!



    But to give my $.02:

    This is an LG 3005, what we would call a "Custom" now, not an LG 2005 (the "old" version of the flat top), or a Standard/Standard Plus (the "new" version of the flat top).

    The center of the neck is indeed Purpleheart, it has just darkened a bit from being played a lot over years.
  18. Thanks for the insight, Gard!
  19. Sold. Thanks TB!!
