    Ask, and ye shall receive! The strings are a hair past their fresh date, so I boosted the treble more than I would have liked (I think the top end is a little harsh in the clip). But the bass sounds awesome, VERY Warwick.

    I leaned on the neck pickup slightly, and boosted everything (bass, mid, treble) about halfway.

    Tasty! If I didn't know better, I would almost think that you have a good time making these clips :)

    FYI - I just remixed the clip and brought the bass up a bit so you can get a better feel for the bass's tone now...

    FYI - All these recent trades have squeezed my cash flow this month, so I've put them all up on eBay to make a quick turn. The "Buy It Now" prices should match my site's prices, but the starting bids are a little lower... this is a great chance to get a steal of a deal!

    Here are the eBay listings: SSI4, SSI5 and Lakland 55-94.

    And we'll have the NT $$ up later tonight...

    Strings aren't dead, it's got Elixirs on it. They don't have that bright "zing" to them.;)

    Ah, I've never played Elixirs... and now I probably never will :)

    Man, I listened to that clip of me on this bass again - I can hear myself struggling with the neck on the slap part. I was really fighting the broadneck girth and string spacing, it took me 5-6 takes to get it that good (and it's NOT that good). Roscoe's thin neck has sissified my hands :) I'll be interested to hear what you think of the wider Roscoe neck that you custom ordered. Is it more comfortable or just different?

    :mad:

    ...are you insinuating that playing a Roscoe is somehow...unmanly???

    :mad:

    ...them's fightin' wurds whare Eye come frum....

    No, no, no... a Roscoe is just so easy to play, it's made my hands not as tough as they need to be to play that Warwick broadneck :)

    It's a goooood thing, trust me...

    :D Whew. That was close, Greg. How about, instead of "sissified," we say, "spoiled rotten?" That way I feel more manly too since I've got three Roscoes in the fleet. :)

    Ah, man, I bet your hands are all soft and squishy with 3 Roscoes in the house.
