    Just over a year old, I am the original owner and it's never left the house. It is in excellent condition and by all accounts a great take on the modern J bass. I changed the preamp to an Aguilar (vol/vol/bass/treble with push/pull on the bass for mid boost).

    $2150 shipped in Canada/US

    Roscoe Century Standard Plus 5J
    3-pc Maple neck
    Ash body
    Bubinga top
    Birdseye maple fretboard
    Bartolini 57J1 pickups
    Aguilar preamp (vol/vol/bass/treble with push/pull on the bass for mid boost)
    Black hardware
    Roscoe single or double gigbag

    Weight: 7.7 lbs

    Here are some photos from when it was new, but I can take some current ones if you like.

    Beautiful bass Jeff!

    Bump for a great TB'er and a killer jazz style Roscoe!

    Here are some recent photos. The Nordstand pickups shown have since been sold and the original Bartolinis are back in the bass.

    Just curious: does it sound like a jazz, or does it sound like a Roscoe? Or which closer approximation?

    Very J bass like, though it's a bit more modern.

    I can't stop looking at this bass. Somebody seriously needs to snatch this up before I get myself into trouble.

    I just weighed it for someone, and it is 7.7 lbs which is even lighter than I guessed.

    35" scale. Currently not wired for passive, but could easily be added as a push/pull.
