    www.kevinburnes.com goto sounds then Melange. 2nd set in particular. Roscoe lg5 through iAMP 800 w/2 cxl112s.
    P.S. The other bass is a Guild Ashbory.
  9. I was in the same boat...Played a Tobias for the first time last year, and really liked it, until I started hearing the horror stories about the ones Gibson made. Started really looking around, and narrowed the field to 2 custom luthiers, an MTD or Roscoe. Played the MTDs and a Roscoe for the first time this past Monday while out of town...and didn't want to put the Roscoe down...kept coming back to it. Now the final four are down to two - indy luthier or Roscoe (I guess Keith's an indy luthier too...but more and more stores are carrying his products).

    If you're GASsing for one, I guarantee you'll be hooked whenever you play one. Then the GAS pain is intensified until you get one.

  11. The only problem is that the closest store that carries Roscoe's is almost 3 hours away...unless anyone knows of one closer to the SF bay area..

    The closest Roscoe dealer to me is 5+ hours away.
    I would trust the mp3's (do you hear tones that you like?) and the testimonies of other players. If you have specific questions, Keith and Gard at Roscoe can answer them.

    And you know what?...if you just "hate" the bass, someone will buy it because they're great basses.
  16. There is a dealer in Rancho Cordova (Sacramento area) and another in Dublin (west bay).

    If there's anything I can help you with, please feel free to e-mail or PM me anytime.

    It's funny...I hear that from bandleaders and the audience all the time.
