    *** TRADED -- Thanks for looking! ***

    I have a Lakland Skyline Joe Osborn 5 that I'd like to trade for a Fender Roscoe Beck V. I bought this bass a few months ago from Talkbass member Tim O'Connor. It's an extremely nice instrument but the Jazz bass sound and 35" scale are not for me.

    The bass is black with a black pickguard and maple fretboard. There is one "smudge" about an inch or two in size on the back of the instrument that looks similar to wear that you might see on a pickguard from slapping.

    Aside from the minor blemish, this bass is in perfect shape and plays and sounds excellent. The bass comes with the Levy's Lakland gig bag and the original mint (aged white) pickguard.

    I'm looking for a Fender Roscoe Beck V in any color. If I absolutely can't get a trade, I'll consider selling the JO.

    Thanks for looking!

    Pic of potential swap. This is the quintessential color for this bass (the original was this color).

    The bass is still available. However, I found a couple of blemishes. There are three pencil-point sized dings on the back of the body next to the string-through body holes, and a light scratch on the bottom of the body next to the strap button.

    I'd still like to trade (plus cash) for a Roscoe Beck V but I will consider selling at this point.

    These pictures were taken with a camera phone; sorry about the quality.

    Sorry if I missed it, but I don't recall seeing a price. What are you asking for this fine bass? Thanks.

    How does this sound compared to a 55-01?
