    Gard, I seem to see a pattern here. You've now mentioned this bass and the one you sold to Joey "squidbass" as being very special basses. They were both solid swampash bodies. Do you think that there's any truth to the simplicity of the plain swampash bodies adding to the magic of the tone?

    Oh, and I'm anxiously awaiting to hear about your thoughts on an alder bodied Roscoe.

    Gard does Roscoe not make that many 4 stringers? Like MTD, I don't seem them often it seems.

    One thing's for sure, it sure show's off the nice ash grain and creates a beautiful Roscoe without having to layout the extra cash for an exotic top!

    I think Basso Gruvitas is close to pulling the trigger on a Roscoe with the enhanced ash grain...............:ninja:

    Sweeeeeeeet bass!

    I have always loved the look of natural swamp ash but for my Roscoe, I toped it with a beautiful exhib. grade quilted maple.
    Anyway, a all swamp ash Roscoe body should sound great and have killer look !

  12. Wow, how did half a month go by without me noticing this thread??!! :eek:

    That aqua bass really turned out nice! I don't know if I would have chosen that fingerboard, but you gotta do something different sometimes....

    Gard told me the same thing about Joey Squid's all-ash bass.

    Makes you kinda............get a little................

    GAS!!!
     
  13. Although I'm very much in love with my new MTD I gotta say this Roscoe looks NICE!!! :hyper: :hyper: :hyper:

    GAS GAS GAS
