  3. Congrats.

    Larry Morgan Music is where I've started doing all my business. They are very helpful and they have a great selection. I just bought a Ampeg B-100R from them.

    Yeah great service so far, and a good deal.

    The first two times I've spoken with Larry himself (which I hear is very rare). The second time I dealt with Marcus and he was cool as well.

    I'm as giddy as a....well I don't know. But I'm giddy! :D

    Way cool for you! My SKB 3006 has action second to none, it REALLY helps these stubby fingers fly around the fretboard. :bassist:

    Well, I thought I'd be slick and see if any pix were on the Larry Morgan website, but no dice... guess we'll have to wait for you to post 'em... congrats, dood!

    Yeah--in the words of a fellow at Larry Morgan's (can't remember his name)---"our website is jacked up!"

    I almost didn't even bother going to LMM because I looked at their website. They had nothing I was interested in (not to mention nothing that I could afford). When I called, I asked if they had any 6 strings in stock and he mentioned the Roscoe. Then when I walked in and saw the selection that they had, I was floored. I coulda stayed in that place for DAYS :D

    This pretty much sums me up as well. They gave me an insane deal on my SWR Redhead, but otherwise I couldn't afford much of any of the cool stuff they had. *heavy sigh*

    First Fodera I ever touched was at Larry Morgan Music.

    ooooo..... It was purty. Marcus seems to be nice fellow to deal with.

    The place seems kinda funny, out of the way in a little plaza, but with a fair amount of high-end gear. From the parking lot it looks like a run-down pawn shop.

    A quick scan on the wall where the Foderas were hanging revealed about $20,000 in high end basses, at least.

    Hey Ty,

    If it's the Roscoe 6 that I know Larry had, that is a SWEEEET instrument! Does it have the Cedar body, cobalt blue on figured maple and a sapwood fingerboard? If that's it, you got a NICE bass!!

    If we're talking about the same axe, that was actually at Speir Music for quite a while. I don't know why it never sold.

    Tell the guys at Larry Morgan you want NEW STRINGS! I think it has factory originals, so that would make them about 3 or 4 years old!

    Nope. This one is the Ash bodied, emerald green with the spalted purpleheart f/b.

    I did get new strings. Never bought a 6 string set before, but I've heard good things about DR Lo-Riders, so I figured I'd give 'em a shot. After I told him to put the DR's on there, I wondered why I didn't go with Fodera or somethin' like that :p

    I'd like to think I have a nice bass whether it's the same on or not :D

    2 days folks, 2 days! I can hardly stand it!!!!

    Wow, I didn't ever see that one! Are they Roscoe dealers? If so, that's news to me. Were there other Roscoes there? Their Alembics are really nice, but really! $8,000 for a bass??!!

    Congratulations, sounds like a great bass.

    Does anyone know when they are moving into the old Speir building?
