    For sale is a beautiful Roscoe Century Standard 5 String Bass. Completed in May of 2012, this bass was hand made at Roscoe Guitars in Greensboro NC.

    It features a Swamp Ash body with a beautiful Tobaccoo Sunburst finish and a 3-piece Maple bolt-on neck with a Maple fretboard. It sports Hipshot Ultralite tuners and a Hipshot bridge.

    The pickups are by Bartolini and the 3-band preamp is a Bartolini NTMB. The controls are Volume, Pickup Pan, Mid and a stacked Bass/Treble control. The mid is a push/pull knob which allows you to select either High or Low Mids.

    This bass is 35" scale with 18mm string spacing. The 35" scale is ideal for a five string and this bass has an awesome sounding B string. The overall tone is very punchy and focused with very clear low end.

    The bass is in almost factory new condition. I only used it a few times on gigs. There are just a couple of minor shinny spots on the matte finish from being played (by the pickups) which you can only see close up. Otherwise it is in perfect condition. It comes with all the Roscoe paperwork and included is a Roscoe gig bag.
