    Ill take some photos of it later.
    Played some Mod's, MTD's, Zons, etc etc
    But nothing i repeat NOTHING had the sound that the Roscoe had. Awesome B string.
    Yes, Gard is responsible but im very happy with the result and the price was good.

    Congrats, Pick. I'm sorry I had to miss the GTG, but I did tell you you'd love a Roscoe! :D That one's beautiful. What's the fingerboard? That looks like the 3-band pre, too. Am I correct on that?

    Ive never played on a bass with the whole slanted-pickup dealy. How does that affect ur playing if you are the type that rests ur thumb on one?

    now im 110% sure that is the ONLY one of them in australia. You and your band should enter into the local battle of the bands and see what all the little bass players say about it..

    'Pftt, its nothing compared to my samick'

    Awsome bass man, i think ill come to sydney just to play that.
     
  17. Awesome bass, man! I have to check out those Roscoes some day.

    Here, helping you out:

    Mr. Geoff
    I played a Dingwall Afterburner and i must say i was impressed. Sadly it was a six string and that is one more string than i could justify. It did have a very, very good B string. Not quite as much punch as the Roscoe but it was the cleanest B i have ever heard.
