For sale is this near mint fretted Roscoe SKB-3005. I purchased it from another TBer in 2009. It was supposed to be a temporary bass until I had a custom bass made. I liked this bass so much that I ended up putting off the new build order for two years. This is an extremely versatile bass with many tone shaping abilities. This bass has been gigged about 50-70 times and about as many rehearsals. At home I primarily practiced on my fretless. It has been kept in air conditioning about 11 of 12 months a year and has never been rained on at a gig. I've had the action and neck adjusted by a professional/ nationally known guitar tech, and it's been a beautifully playing instrument. The only reasons it is not completely mint include: minimial fret wear[Edit 12/5/12: With a closer look, there is no fret wear. The frets look 'polished' where the strings touched the frets. There are no indentations on the frets from the strings], the smoothing of the back of the neck due to my left thumb, minimal surface oxidation at the body/neck screw heads and added Schaller strap locks. There are no scratches or dents.
