    Check out the two new Roscoe models at www.roscoeguitars.com. I couldn't find any specs or prices, just the images.

    the century V looks sleek, but too much like an ibanez for my tastes.. I'm still an admirer of the LG-3005

    That reminds me more of a Tobias than an Ibanez.

    I was thinking the exact same thing. I just went to the website, saw the bass, and thought to myself, "Hey, a Tobias."

    It reminds me of a Tobias as well. I speak with Keith a few times a week- Im a Roscoe dealer. He says these are a little more open sounding. I have yet to play or hear on, but I am a huge fan of Roscoe basses, he's making me a thuya 6 string as we speak. If that Century doesn't grab you, check out the LG3005 we had at the shop last week. It was sold in a blink of an eye! major GAS!!

  8. Enh, the BTBs are a just a ripoff of the MTD body style. I like the Century.

    I can just hear that "justification" conversation.

    "But honey, I bought it for both of us. We can hang it in the closet when I'm not using it"

    :D

    Adrian,

    Would you update us with prices and specs if you get them. I for one like the new model alot. Looks like the same neck and electronics (not on a slant), so I'm thinking same price. But, please let us know if you hear anything.

    I am not entirely sure, but i belive they will have slightly lower prices than the existing models- - i welcome any email or private inquiries, or call me toll free, but i want to be sure not to conduct biz on the forum.. call me or email me- visit the site..:D
     
  14. You're right! It's like a Tobias with a Roscoe headstock.

    How dumb i am.
