    I'm putting my very unique like new Roscoe SKB-3005 up for a possible trade. I'm not pushing this out the door unless a good trade comes along. I'd be happy keeping it. It sounds as good as it looks. It has a fatter tone than most Roscoe's because of pickup positions. HUGE! but not muddy. These are the specs:


    Roscoe SKB 3005 SN#5860 (made in april 2008)
    Cost over 4 grand new.

    SPECS:

    34" in neck scale (custom option)
    Walnut Body w/ figured walnut back
    Ebony w/sapwood top
    Ebony w/sapwood Fingerboard Fretted
    Nordstrand DC5 (custom option)
    Custom Pickup Location, 60’s Jazz Bass (custom)
    Aguilar 3 Band Pre replaced with custom Demeter preamp
    Black Hardware
    Graphite Nut
    normal Roscoe 18.3mm string spacing
    Case
    9.5lbs on my analog scale

    Looking for something of equal value:
    High End JJ or JP style 5 string
    34" scale
    Prefer active preamp
    Nordy, Sadowsky, Bottom Wave, Alleva Copollo, etc.
    might consider a 4 string or trading down plus cash, not really looking to trade up as I have no cash to offer beside the bass.

    Here are some quick pics for people who are to lazy to click on link above for higher res pics:
