    Hey, Gard - I wanted to let you know some exciting news from my shop. Roscoe basses are drawing folks to my shop from as far away as Richmond (4 hours east of here). It's happening once or twice a week now - someone will drop in on their way to wherever, based purely on the fact that I carry Roscoe basses and they saw my inventory online.

    NC players show a lot of interest, too, probably because buying from me in VA is an easy way to avoid NC sales tax while still receiving the bass the next day.

    The only other luthier we carry that has that kind of pull is John Suhr. That's great company to be in!

    I chalk it up to:
    - reputation (Roscoe's, not mine)
    - quality ('nuff said)
    - exclusivity (can't get a Roscoe on every corner)
    - Internet buzz (Roscoe has it going on)

    Way to be, Roscoe!!

    Greg, my sister's up at Radford, and when I have to head up to help her move back, I will NOT miss the opportunity to stop in!

    Come one, come all! I LOVE meetings folks that I've gotten to know on TalkBass.

    I'm frankly amazed how many TB'rs there are locally here in BFE Blacksburg, VA. There must be 2-3 dozen at least. Before TB, I probably only knew of 5-6 other bass players in the area.
