    Isn't that the old style bridge? Hasn't Roscoe stopped using that one due to some odd problems?

    Anyone know?
     
  3. It looks like a Hipshot Style A, which I've had on many high end basses; never any problems on this end.

    Thanks. I'm not a Roscoe expert by any stretch of the imagination. I did play one by chance at a local store and really liked it. The bridge was definately not like that. I remember hearing something about Roscoe's and the bridge but I just can't remember.

    QUESTION: Call me stupid, but what does this mean. "Pictured mute not included."

    I want to keep the mute that's seen in the body pic next to the bridge. It was on with a double-sided adhesive (no screw holes).

    Ahaa that would explain why the bridge looks funny. OK now I see. I really never saw a mute like that. I only remember hearing of "mutes" in a more traditional (stand up) bass setting. Not that I have ever played a stand up bass.

    So, it obviously does have the better Hipshot bridge. Case solved.

    It has the 18V upgraded electronics. Correct? And the lightweight formfitted case. Correct?

    Thanks.

    Hey Mr. B! This is Scott Cutrer from way back in the 1980's Music Corner days. Hows life? Nice bass BTW. Nice to see a familiar face here in the depths of bassgeardom!

    Take care
