Here's the situation: 1) Next monday I should sell my Laurus fretless to a guy here in italy. 2) As Michael Tobias via e-mail told me, my all Walnut 1991 Tobias Classic 5 would be a great fretless...may be better fretless,than fretted. So I think to de-fret it,to replace my Laurus. 3)I need a modern 5 fretted: since I play the Jazz'78 and the fretless almost exclusivly,I haven't many pregjudice...a Ken Smith would be cool to my as an MTD,just to give you the idea. Now:there are a couple of Roscoes LG 5 fretted at BassCentral,that are brand new,but speccially priced...something like $1600. My hart say:go for it.....it's a bargain and I haven't many prejudice....I simply need a modern hi-end 5 fretted that plays great but my mind says:it's a big risk,since I haven't tryed a Roscoe ever....that's the big problem...Roscoes doesn't exist here in Italy. My friend Gard,says it's a very,very,very great bass with an amazing B string.. Roscoe guys:TRY to give me an idea about Roscoe's sound,playability,etc...please!!!I know it's tough to do it,but try...I need You!!!
