    Killer any tone!!! I will have a custom one in the future! But I think a basslines soapbar would go better in the bridge, make it chunkier. Barts have (a nice) natural/organic woody tone, but IMO think and chunky is how a bridge pup should be.

    Oh and LGs are the best!

    Great Gospel tone indeed! I wish there was some better lighting so we could see that beauty better :)

    I have been trying to study that same video for some time now. I love the bass lines that Israel's bassists come up with!

    I had 2 Roscoes (a 5 and 6) and loved them.

    Just couldn't get the slap sound I wanted out of the Barts and found Jazz basses a better fit for me.

    Obviously, the player is the issue in any case as this guy sounds great!

    Slap tone does seem to be an issue with Roscoes for some, especially if you are used to the aggressive slap sound of a Jazz bass. I love my Roscoe and the slap tone it gives, but I couldn't be without my J's!
