    I am looking for trades for 5 strings of the same quality ... Other 5 string Roscoe SKB's will be considered Im not really into the LG's. Run what you have past me. I might even bite at the right 4 string (Vintage Fenders/some USA Lakland models etc...)

    Shipping in the Con US only.
    Thanks for looking
    - Tom

    Most of us don't. :D

    With a bass that beautiful, it's probably one of those deals where you're hoping this is going to be "the one" that fits just right.

    Hi Mike,
    I am keeping my options open on this one ... I am sincerely hoping this trade works out well for both parties, I cant see why it wouldint, this bass should be played it sounds wonderful. For now its a good thing I still have my Fender :)
     
  6. Too bad you dont want a LG. Id be willing to go in debt to switch with you on that one.

    Hi, I have had an LG before and I think they are beautiful I just personally prefer the SKB body shape. No other reason ....

    Narrow!... no its too wide for my hands, Im not digging the spacing or the actual width of the fingerboard (I think spacing is 19mm), its just too much for me, Maybe some thing like a Q6 would be better I think thats 17mm

  10. Same here. I love the LG, but Id love to have a SKB 6. Good luck selling. This looks alot like my favorite Roscoe that TB'er Shawnost has.

    I believe I have seen that bass and I must say that his top is way more figured, in fact that top is probably one of the nicest I have seen!
    My bass is in the same vein, but not as figured.
