    Ok, this is a forum for owners of the new Roscoe Classic or Classic Custom Basses. Share pics and info about your Classic.

    Here is my Classic Custom JJ, Serial #0000, Alder Body, Maple Neck, Bound Pao Ferro Fingerboard with Block inlay. Olympic White with matching Headstock, Aguilar 4J-HC Pickups and a East J-Tone Preamp.

    One day I'll have a Custom Classic. I'm pretty sure it'll look a little like this.

    roscoe geddy.
    I don't really play 4 strings much any more. I suppose if I had this maybe I would and just forget the low notes. Or get it in a 5 string I guess. Never liked a passive B string but I haven't tried a Roscoe passive B string either so...

    I like how Keith couldn't decide on the profile for the headstock, so he did both. :)

    Perhaps the Roscoe PJ headstock should look like this:

    DualHeadstock.

    Tell Keith. But I want a royalty. :cool:
     
  10. Nice, but we have already decided to stick with "our" design for that one when we do it. :)

    What's the fretboard radius on the 4 strings?

    Good question, I will have to defer to @Gard for the exact radius.

    That was what I was thinking but as soon as I would have said something Gard would have come in and corrected me. :D

    After spending a few days to setup and let settle I can say the Roscoe classic 5 string J is a keeper.
    I have gone through many, many basses and this is by far my favorite "Fender" style bass. Shoot, it might be my favorite bass that I have had the pleasure of playing. The B string is on point.
    I will be bringing it with me this Sunday.
    Pics and band update later!

    I have already started setting money aside for a 5 string Classic PJ. Since I got my Classic 4 JJ I have only played my SKB3005 once, the reason, the singer I was backing had all the charts in B. When I was at the Roscoe shop I was able to play one of the first Classic PJ 5 strings and was impressed with how tight the B string sounded. I went back a couple weeks later and Keith had made a profile adjustment to neck thickness and made an awesome playing bass, and the best way to describe it is, more awesomer! :D
