    S/N 5972 is one of the most decked out Roscoes I've ever seen. The top is an incredible piece of flamed Koa, and the Bird's Eye Maple fretboard board has lot of figure, some cool mineral streaking and a gorgeous Koa inlay at the 12th fret. Matching Bird'e Eye Maple pickup covers on the Nordys and matching Koa knobs create a really eye catching effect.

    This bass is near mint. The original Retail Price (NOT including the PUPs and knobs) was $6795, so this would have sold new for $5100. The wood covered PUPs added $400+, and the knobs $150. So total new cost was roughly $5700.

    Absolutely beautiful. Very tasteful. Does Roscoe do wood pup covers and knobs like that or is that stuff aftermarket?
