    Up for sale is an amazing Roscoe 5 string bass. I am the original owner. I custom ordered it and have had it about 8 months. It is flawless. Played it in church.

    Features:

    Model: Century Standard Plus 5
    Body: Swamp Ash w/ Koa Top
    Finish: Oil
    Preamp: Bartolini 3-Band
    Pickups: Bartolini CBs
    Neck: 3-Piece Maple Neck
    Fingerboard: Bird's Eye Maple, Fretted
    Hardware: Black
    Case: Roscoe Single Gigbag
    35" scale
    18.3 mm spacing at the bridge
    7.8 pounds

    8487751496_0f133eb9c3_c.

    New this bass would coast $2,925 new with a wait time of a few months. You can have one that is good as new without the wait and save over $800!

    $2,100 shipped.

    This is a debt reduction thing for me so I need cash. I might be willing to "trade down" for a 4 string jazz type bass (Fender, Lakland, etc.) but would need $1,200 to come my way.

    There are a lot for sale now, but this is the one I wish I could grab. Just missed out on a very similar one up here in Canada; if it wasn't cross-border, I'd be seriously considering this!

    Wow, only if it had an Alder Body, Roscoe Barts, Demeter Preamp, Hipshot A bridge and painted Shell Pink, I would be all over this bass. :D

    I don't know Crash. I think I'd stick with the natural Koa. "Shell Pink" might clash with the highlights in your hair

    This is like old times, a couple Roscoehead's totally disrupting the continuity of a thread!

    Personally I'm think that a set of those florescent yellow DR strings would be all that's required to convince Crash to buy this bass! :)

    Sorry for the derail Steve!

    Bump for a great TB'er and a beautiful Roscoe CS+ 5!

    I'm used to it by now. Not much action on this FS thread anyway. Way too many nice Roscoes FS right now.

    Surprised to hear - this one looks fantastic, and the price seems fair. If I could get one like this at that price, I'd likely go for it...but with me being in Canada the extra costs would put this close to the price of a new one.
