    Skyscraper Model in excellent original condition including hard case. Flamed maple top and back, Bartolini pickups and Pre, Maple board with some spalting. No issues plays well.

    PLEASE NOTE: THE COLOR OF THIS BASS IS PURPLE SEE THRU FINISH. THE PICTURES SHOW A REDDER COLOR THAN THE BASS ACTUALLY IS. IN PERSON THE COLOR LOOKS MORE PURPLE.
    I sent an email in to Roscoe about this bass and here is what they said.

    "Hello, unfortunately, our records from that period are lost, so we can justgive you an overview of that bass. It appears to be all flame maple - a bookmatched front and back with a veneer between, which wasn't unusual at the time, the pickups are Bartolini J-style, and should be the humbucking version. The preamp is probably a Bartolini 2-band, the controls appear to be either a vol/vol or vol/balance and treble & bass controls, the switch is a "boost" switch.
    The fingerboard is maple as is the neck. Please let us know if there is anything else we can help you with!
    Thanks, Gard Lewis

    Now THIS I could possibly let go of my Hamer Scarab for....

    Can you describe the sound?
    Neck profile/nut width?
    String spacing?
    Weight?

    I'm not terribly familiar with these basses, but she's a looker.

    Bump for a beauty (and somewhat rarity) of a bass!!!

    Make no mistake, this is a world class instrument in build quality, components, sound, feel and playability. It is vintage but still as nice as the current models.
