    Does anyone know when Roscoe switched from the 4-a-side headstock to the 2+2 headstock?

    When I first layed eyes on a Roscoe back in 1989 they were 2+2, 3+2 & 3+3. If they were ever all in line it must of been prior to the LG and SKB models.

    Back when all new rock had hair that entered the stratosphere, there was this young rocker named Keith who made pointy guitars. As I'm told, they were pretty good too. He then started making basses. They sold more, so he started concentrating on those. When pointy guitars lost their popularity, God smiled upon the young man named Keith and he began the quest to build the best basses in the land. Enter Monty Python trumpetting music.

    If my history needs revision, please add to the tale of "Young Keith".

    Maybe your talking about the Fender Roscoe Beck sig. basses?

    Yeah, these are the instruments I'm talking about. Thing is, I know for certainty that he made some basses with 4-a-side, pointy headstocks. I just want to know when they date from.
     
  6. Gard'll know. I'm sure he will chime in soon.
