    These basses will be considered the Basses that Killed the Jazz! They sound remarkable and they don't look to shabby either.

    That's one of the more awesome enchanced grain ash bodies that I've seen Roscoe do. That's right up there with some of the natural F bass finishes that I've seen.

    Great looking bass!

    Oh, man!!! I sat down to record this bass, and I had no choice but to slap it...

    All bass parts were played with the blend centered and the EQ flat. I went direct through my Alembic F1X preamp into my M-Audio FastTrack Ultra 8R USB interface.

    "Shaky Ground"

    Can I get a "Hell, Yeah"? Jerry, I think you're gonna LOVE your Roscoe J whenever it gets done...

    I know it as a Delbert McClinton tune, but it could easily be someone from Stax or something like that...

    I've been googling on it, since, and can't find a concrete answer, most say he wrote it, but I did find a version by The Temptations from 75.


    The version I was thinking of, was a recent one live, on somekind of Fender stage, at NAMM, or something.

    Ah, yeah! Two Jerry's with Roscoe 6-string J's. What a small, small world!!

    I expect these Roscoe J's are really going to take off. You get Roscoe looks and feel with a killer Fender sort of tone. What's not to love?!? All of the Fender good, none of the Fender bad...

    Now if I could only play as well as the other Jerry:crying:


    I agree 100% Greg. I actually have a Jazz 5er for sale in the classifieds that I won't be needing.

    Utterly BadAzz take on Shaky Ground Greg!

    And Jerry, I wish I could play as well as either of the two 6 string wielding Jerry's.

    :D

    God Bless, Ray

    I dare say Etta was covering Delbert there... is that even possible? When did she die?
