Hello. I am looking to purchase a new bass and am hoping that I can score a quality axe between $1000 - $2000. I have narrowed my selections to three choices, here they are: 1). Roscoe LG-3005 2). Lakland 55-94 and 3). Sadowsky Tokyo Model. Please help me select from these choices. In particular, if any of you own the Roscoe I have the following question. The Warwick Thumb has its pick ups positioned similar to that of the Roscoe and I found it more difficult to slap than if they were regularly positioned. Has anyone with a Roscoe experienced this?
