  2. ...I particularly like how the top changes color so dramatically depending on the angle you're looking at it from...

    ...man, that was one very cool bass!

    :cool:
     
  3. Oh man. This is beautiful. That fingerboard...that top...that finish. What an amazing looking instrument! Does the headstock match the body?

    Easily said about any Roscoe, but this is truly one instrument I'd love to hear.
     
  4. Actually, yes, the headstock does match the body, but this particular piece of cedar is VERY reactive to the light angle, and it shows up different because of it in a photo....neat stuff...

    :)

    That is such an interesting top.
    Who'da thunk a cedar top would be so pretty?

    So is this one sort of a "best of both world's" type of deal, where the characteristics of both woods are coming out in the tone??

    I think so. I haven't really gotten a good handle on what spanish cedar brings to the table yet, but this bass is really bright, punchy, growly. LOTS of attitude.

    Mmmm... eye AND ear candy!
     
  10. Greg, you have selected some amazing Roscoe instruments for your inventory. I can't imagine this one sticking around for a long time. Very, very nice eye (and ear!), my man.

    So this one sold while I was out last week... that tells me I should go on vacation more often :D
     
  12. Ha...no surprise there, really. An awesome instrument! But, if it helps business, come on out here for a short vacation. We'll drink lots of (real) beer, and take pictures of instruments in compromising positions for Adam & Gard. :D

    Greg, how's the slap tone? BTW, you do have a nice habit of stocking some killer Roscoes!

    This bass had a killer slap tone. Still does, I guess, I just won't get to hear it anymore.

    It was quite a bright and growly bass, lots of cut.

    Yeah, boy I'm getting the itch to get some new Roscoes in... Gard has one or two more in the short-term works for my store.
