    For sale is my beautiful Candy Apple Red Roscoe Beck IV. The Bill Lawrence pickups are punchy and versatile, way more than my Fender American Jazz. This thing is a beast and looks great. Has the power of an active bass but the pure tone of a passive. In very nice condition aside from some swirl mark and a few surface scratches. I tried to take detailed pics of the cosmetic imperfections. The spring on the E-string bridge has been removed for intonation purposes but since the bridge has a locking screw this has not bothered me. Spring is included along with the rest of the case candy and very sturdy G&G case. I don't have the keys for the case. Weighs between 9 and 9.25 using the luggage scale method.

    $1450 USD shipped to CONUS. West of Mississippi add $25 for shipping. PayPal accepted.

    Nice! I played one of these for the first time at Gruhn’s about 7 months ago. It may have been the all-around best Fender I ever played, and it was not anywhere near as good a deal as this one. I don’t think you need it, but GLWTS! :thumbsup:

    I have a RBV, only wish I had the cash for this (it's a different color!).

    GLWS.

    Thanks, it is definitely different than a regular Fender Jazz. The note depth is much punchier.

    Best production Fender ever made. No question. Hard to come by anymore......shouldn’t last long.

    Even better than any custom shop Fender I’ve played.

    Someone will have a very lucky New Bass Day!

    These are superb. I had one, but gave it up upon realizing I'm a five-string guy, and didn't feel right warehousing such a great bass. Sadly, I don't dig the neck on the RB V, but the 4-string is a knockout - and that red finish is my favorite look. Whoever gets this will be very happy - GLWTS!

    I have RB IV same as the one listed above. This is absolute killer bass and I get positive comments on both tone and transparent red finish. If it was honey burst I would be all over it. I totally agree with those who claim this is one of the best models made by Fender and IMO better than some custom shop basses.
