    G.A.S. is a terrible thing!

    Putting up for sale my excellent condition Roscoe Century Standard Plus 5. This has the amazing J/MM combination. If you want to get ANY tone from a bass guitar, this is the instrument you want! The only thing keeping this from "mint" is a single nick on the back of the body (see pics)
    • Spanish Cedar body
    • Maple neck (with elegant laminates within. See pics)
    • Maple fingerboard
    • Quilted maple top laminate (with lovely accent plies between the top and body throughout. See pics)
    • All Nordstrand electronics: NJ-5, MM5.2, and 3-band preamp (with coil switching AND active/passive)
    • Original Bart electronics included
    • 35" scale
    • 18mm string spacing @ bridge
    • 8.4 lbs.
    • Comes with a minty mint Roscoe gig bag (still has the tag on it!)
    Asking $2,000 [PRICE DROP!! NOW $1,900] shipped to anywhere in the lower 48 States. If you are outside of that, we'll have to work out shipping.
    As far as trades, I am REALLY after a sale -- but I'm all about 35" 24-fret jazz 5 basses:
    Mike Lull M5, Elrick Expat 5, Roscoe JJ 5, Valenti 24J5.... ash bodies please

    Glad to answer questions.

    Love that pickup combination. Had it in my Lakland as well. Tempting for sure but I think I may be homeless if I get another bass.

    Hey Doug, this bass was completed June 11, 2014 per the letter from Keith Roscoe. I am the first owner and I bought the bass from retail in spring of 2016.
