    Here is my quilt Maple topped LG3005 that was built for Kim Stone (of The Rippingtons). In a moment of uncertainty, I let her go. But she found a good home. That's what matters right. sigh.

    If I had every bass I ever owned, I would be a the envy of all. Then again, if Adrian had every bass he ever owned, he would need a HUGE insurance policy! :)

    ashbody/burled myrtle top/purpleheart board/bart3band preamp. I sold every bass I owned at the time including my SR5, and I was never happier with a decision in my life.
     
  7. Eli

    Ash body/maple top/ebony board/ aggie 3 band preamp.

    WOW...... deep/dark/ and completely in control of any room he enters!! The ultimate " groove metal" bass. It has caused countless SBM!! :D

    A bit unusual in that it has a flat top, passive tone control, and active pickups. Swamp ash body, burl maple top, RW board. Oooh yeah!

    I am planning on putting an active John East preamp in it.

    Look at all of those great tops!!! :D :hyper: I've said it before and I'll say it again, Keith might very well have the best and MOST stellar wood of anyone I know. We talked today about that very topic, in fact....setting things in motion for the next few Roscoes coming in my direction. The guy literally has warehouses full of some of the most unique and highly-figured tops I've ever seen. It's just unreal ! :)
     
  15. :p

    here's mine:
    Flamed Redwood Burl top, Swamp Ash body, Cocobolo fingerboard
     
  16. any more ??? :p

    Hi Adrian hows it going, that bass has a high level of coolness. I was just thinking of how a figured maple neck would go well with a top like that.

    Major Metal- Buckeye and birdseye Maple have been a favorite for a while- had a Fodera Monarch and an F bass BN5 in that configuration and loved it- so i chose it for this Roscoe, which is not mine, it's stock...yep, the fingerboard is a little figured.. ;)
