    I've decided(finally) to get a roscoe six, this might be one of the top 5 most exotic looking bodies i've ever seen, especially after the spalted purple heart fretboard is on there. So for those of you who like progress pics heres on for ya.
     
  2. Wow... beautiful.. except for the high gloss finish.. I don't like them as much as I like satin finishes. and it does look exotic

    that is an incredible looking piece of wood
     
  5. Looks awesome!!

    That is definitely a unique piece, even for buckeye. Can't wait to see it done. It seems that there are gonna be a few buckeye Roscoes showing up soon.

    i pretty much like the wood, but what some bass players think is beatiful, others find totally revolting.
