    Roscoeheads please sign up here

    • Must love Roscoe basses
    • Must post a reply to any thread with the word, "Roscoe" in it
    • You don't have to own a Roscoe, but refer back to rule #1
    • You must not try to make others love Roscoes like the Sadowsky fans

    I started this, so I'll be Roscoehead #1

    Well, I don't own one---YET. Hopefully soon, if I can ever decide on exactly what options I want, or find one for sale that really does it for me.

    Until then, I will continue to play the one that is sitting in my living room right now. Until my friend decides that I have had it long enough and wants it back, that is. He was going to sell it to me about a month ago, but decided against it. SO, I borrowed it about a week ago to spend a little more time on one. It's gonna be tough giving it back.

    Edit: Roscoe Roscoe Roscoe Roscoe :D
  3. As mentioned, I have 6 and counting I'm sure. Guess I'm #2.
  4. oddly enough the first 3 posters didn't say roscoe

    They didn't have to. Bassmanbob said it four times. That's four times the amount needed for the thread to qualify!

    ...thinking about them all the time is a problem??? I just call it work (well, kinda :hyper: )...


    ...naming your dog Roscoe is either serious brand loyalty or truly disturbing...maybe both???

    Hey all,
    Got here as soon as I could. :D

    Eristic, what color is the Roscoe with the maple fingerboard. My monitor is not very good at translating colors.

    If you REALLY want an SKB fretless, go to Bass NW for a beautiful one! It's probably a killer!
  9. Emerald green! :^D
  10. I said it with pics, which is by far the best way to say it. :^p

    I 've got 2 skb 3006 (fretted and fretless), and, what can I say, they're just the 2 best basses I ever tried/owned !

    I think i'm seriously addicted to the Roscoe quality and can see that I'm not alone ! :p :D

    My ROSCOE SKB3006 is the best sounding and playing bass that I've owned. :bassist:

    I can't wait to buy 2 or 3 more. :hyper:

    Avast, ye be Roscoes abound; prepare for thee lootin and plunderin.

    I'm actually butting heads with Gard about a BEAD LG3004 that I'll probably get around to ordering in the spring/early summer of next year.

    Only one Roscoe so far, but that's not to say there won't be more Roscoes to come! The Roscoe LG stole me back to 4s after I almost dedicated myself to 5s. Two years on the Roscoe, and I'm just picking up 5+s again. I'd LOVE to play a Roscoe 6 now. Hmm... A Roscoe might make a good grad present to myself for finishing college!
    Brendan... Roscoe gonna be able to do you a black wide-spaced Roscoe 4? My Roscoe 4 is jazz-width, and I've never seen a Roscoe without a fancy Roscoe top.

    I love that bass too! You have some terrific looking woods on that puppy. Have you ever thought about installing an Aguilar 3-band in there?

    Go for the 7, man!! We're almost into September -- you can tell your wife it's an early Christmas present! :p
