    2006 Roscoe Century Signature 5

    Spanish Cedar Body
    Exhibition Quilted Maple Top
    Antique Yellow Finish
    Wedge Maple neck with purple heart center lamination, Wenge stringers, and Maple & Cherry accent laminations.
    Fingerboard is Exhibition Cocobolo
    Demeter preamp with a “Q” switch which allows the midrange to affect either a wide or narrow range of frequencies
    35” scale
    Standard Roscoe string spacing.. I think it is around 18.3 mm
    Weighs around 9 lbs on my bathroom scale
    Shipped in Roscoe Hard-shell Case

    This bass is in great condition, it has one scratch on the D string tuner where I banged it on a music stand, and there is some slight wear on the black finish on the G string tuner.

    This is one of the best sounding instruments I have ever played. It is warm and articulate with a nice mid range growl. The Demeter pre is very smooth and versatile. This is a great instrument for slap or fingerstyle.

    The only reason I am selling it is because I prefer 34” scale basses. I’m sure I’ll regret letting this one go. But I’m just not playing it and an instrument this nice deserves to be played.

    $2800 shipped anywhere in the lower 48. Paypal preferred.

    Beautiful bass! The Century is my favorite body shape in the Roscoe line. One like this new would set you back over $4,000. This is a good price!
