For a new Roscoe? I'm about 95% sure I'm going to get another Roscoe 5 string to replace my 6 string I'm going to sell. I love my 6 string, but I really am not a 6 player. I rarely use the C string, I love playing my 5 string Roscoe fretless, and I want a fretted 5 too. I just want to try a couple of basses before I make the commitment (time for another research trip to Bass Central and I want to check out Cliff's CB basses first too). But if I go with another Roscoe, I want one with some more deep thump than I have with my other Roscoes. I'm looking for a deep funk machine that will be deep but with good highs as well. Here's what I was thinking: Roscoe Signature Century V Mahogany body Claro Walnut top Wenge/maple/wenge neck Birdseye Maple fret board Nordstom pickups Demeter preamp Standard string spacing, pick up placement and diamondwood nut I spoke to Gard about this. He said that he and Keith felt that the combo of Mahogany and Walnut may be too deep. I was hoping that the Maple fret board, Nordstom pickups and Demeter preamp would bring out the clarity so it isn't one big boomy mushy mess. What do you guys think? Am I nuts, or am I on to something here?
