    Up for grabs is this killer fretless. Roscoe's are some of my favorite sounding fretless basses and this one is no exception. The Nordstrand J Blades (warm and wooly wind) are just perfect, the bass sounds huge and also very focused and articulate with lots of growl and mwah. I mostly got it for the back pickup Jaco tone and it absolutely has that sound, plus several others. The neck pickup is just monstrous and clear. Nordstrands 2 band preamp is powerful and well matched for the tone of the pickups and fretless voicing. Super fast neck shape, and plays killer with low action and no fingerboard wear. All in all a fantastic playing and sounding, super comfortable fretless. I really dont want to let it go, but am needing a nice P bass (see trades below) for a project thats getting busy and this one isnt getting the playing time to justify keeping it, so sadly it has to go to make room. minor playing wear and a few scratches/dents as seen in pics.
