    Great basses but I personally like the SKB and Century line better.

    I am a small guy, but I find the LG line to be a bit small for me.

    Really just ergonomics and personal preference though as they look/sound killer.

    Dave at Clubbass sells Roscoes and gets LGs in from time to time. I would try to play one before buying one in any case.

    Thanks for your reply,
    I like trying new basses, I currently have a Lakland 55-02 and someone offers me to trade my lakland for his Roscoe LG2005, just wondering if that's a good deal.

    Yup. The Roscoe will generally be worth approx 2x what your Lakland is.

    The 200x line of basses was the early version of what we now call a Standard or Standard Plus (if it has a top). Excellent basses, great value, and as long as they weren't abused, they should be great playing and sounding. If I remember correctly they were only produced in the early to mid 90's.

    I had an early/mid 90's LG2005 up until a couple months age. It played wonderfully and sounded great. Low action and no buzz.

    Look it over. If it's been given the care it deserves I wouldn't be afraid of it at all.
