    I havent ever played a USA Spector, but between the other two listed.. I'd have to go for the Roscoe....

    I'd second the Roscoe personally.

    What sort of sound do you want?

    I play rock/jazz/acoustic stuff. I want a round, tight sound with some punch.

    I'd pick the Spector or the Mod. Roscoe sounds huge, but not so tight.

    Hmmm...based on my experiences, I never was a fan of Modulus, having traded one after 1-1/2 years for my USA neck-thru Spector. I love the Spector.

    I've had the pleasure of visiting Gard at his dude ranch just outside of Orlando and kickin' a few Roscoes around. They were pretty mighty, that's fer sher...

    But, for just one bass, I prefer my Spector. Two basses, having to choose between only your selections? That's when I'd pick the Roscoe.:D

    Thanks for the help
     
  9. I don't have a lot of experience with the Roscoe, but they are awesome looking and people who do have them love them. You would have a great bass no matter what choice you went with, but I would choose the Roscoe.
