    I am looking to sell these basses, but I will consider a trade
    not really looking for anything at the moment but may be tempted by
    Lull JT4
    i'm not a 5 string player but I might consider a Lakland 55-60

    Just got this in a trade - Low End jazz
    very cool bass in great shape
    i have too many basses and this one won't make it into the rotation
    $2,000 shipped conus

    Strappa,
    I believe the Roscoe Beck came only with Pao Ferro fretboard, I have the 5 string clone of your 4.
    Awesome basses, best ever Fender

    Yes you are correct, sometimes referred to as rosewood
    nicest board i have seen on a production line bass

    Not to geek out on wood, pau ferro and rosewood are different woods.
    Pau ferro, morado or "bolivian rosewood"...
    Lighter color and more streaks, looks great and sounds better.

    Thanks Alivefor5!
    they are unique for sure and one of the best made production line basses
     
  11. The RB V was Pao Ferro. The RB IV was rosewood.

    Hire me to design your band's Merch.
    That Jazz bass is gorgeous. Is a $2000 (second hand price) bass really considered "low end"?

    Do you know what the weight is on that Roscoe Beck bass?

    Also, any discount if you don't have to ship? (I live 25 miles from Center City Philadelphia)
