    Adrian, don't tell Brad;), but I think yours is purdier!
     
  5. Yeah, that fretboard looks like Purpleheart sapwood. That has a lot of interesting figuring and stuff. I'd like to hear more etc. when you get a chance.

    I'm hoping it is;).

    Mine should be delivered sometime today though I may miss it. Airborne Express doesn't give a delivery window like other shippers.

    Beautiful bass, man. See my comments on Brad's thread re: the B string. My SKB3007 has the best I've ever encountered. Congratulations, that 6 is really sweet.

    thanks PJR- the string spacing is a little wider than my MTD635.. but i like it- i will have to adjust my playing a little, but its years better than too-close string spacing. the neck is chunkier than my other basses, but maybe thats one of the reasons it sounds so good- so i dont mind. i love the bass.

    mark!! did you get that Vbass pickup thing taken care of? youre gonna flip when you hear it!! im still just getting floored by it- i made a killer Musicman model and i blend it withthe MTD and the tone is sick!! i am going to look into the RMC thing for the Roscoe, or just order another pickup from Roland- but this is the Roscoe thread!!
    the best lo b's ive have found so far as well... looking forward to carrying the line.
     
  16. Adrian, definitely let us know when you are carrying Roscoes. I will probably be a customer.

    Adrian, that bass looks amazing! Is the Fodera now history? How about the KB?

    The Fodera is history- but its kinda still in the family- my friend bought it. The KB is here, but may not be for long.. i could possibly pull off keeping it- but i dont like to keep too many basses,believe it or not- if a bass isnt getting played much, its usually not here long- as in the Fodera case.. that bass was getting offers i couldnt refuse- there will be more Foderas....
