    Now For Sale/Trade: 2013 Roscoe Century Custom 4-string Buckeye Burl

    Just picked up this beautiful bass in trade here on TB. This Roscoe is a work of art and sounds equally as good. The combination of the Mahogany body, Purpleheart fingerboard, and Aquilar pickups and preamp provide a tight low end, great low mid punch, and sweet highs. The quarter sawn neck is smooth and a dream to play; it's great for both finger style and slap.

    I'd love to keep the bass but quickly realized it won't get much play time as I'm already covered on 4-strings. What I do need is an extended range bass (6-string) for studio work or a nice unlined 4-string fretless. As you can see, bass is in very good condition and will ship in it's original Roscoe hard case. Here's the specs on the Roscoe

    Mahogany body
    Buckeye Burl top
    3-piece Maple/Purpleheart quarter sawn neck
    Spalted Purpleheart fingerboard
    Scale: 34 inches
    Frets: 24
    String spacing: 18mm-19mm (adjustable currently set to 18mm)
    Weight: approx. 9lbs
    Aquilar DCB soapbar pickups
    Aquilar OPB-3 preamp vol blend mid (w/push pull for 400/800 Hz) bass/treble stacked

    Trade value: $2600

    Trades: Hoping to find something close in value in a 6-string (Roscoe, EBMM, Yamaha, Modulus, Stambaugh, Zon, Benavente, Clement, Brubaker, Rogers, R Bass, etc.) but might entertain higher value instruments (MTD, Fbass, Ken Smith, Elrick, Adamovic, Skjold, Fabinare, Jerzy Drozd, Mayones, Tobias, Wyn, etc.) I'm open to offers on a variety of 4-string unlined fretless basses-show me what you've got!

    Sale price: $2450 OBO shipped insured CONUS/Paypal OK.

    Happy to answer any questions here-please PM me with any offers. Thanks for looking!

    Weight is approximately 9lbs. Feels easy on the shoulder and perfectly balanced.
