    I just purchased this on TB about 1-2 weeks ago (http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?t=529783). I was curious about Roscoes and this seemed like the most reasonable way to try one.

    It's a beautiful instrument, but alas it's just not quite for me. I guess 25+ years playing huge Fenders and EBMM SR 5 has made its mark on me.

    I'm selling for exactly what I paid: $2100 shipped to the continental USA. I accept paypal only. No trades, thank you.

    Here's the description from the original listing:


    Bass was completed on 07/07, (#5370), and weighs about 8.5 pounds. Perfectly balanced. Mids can be cut/boosted at two different frequencies (push/pull knob). Specs are as follows:

    • Exhibition Boxelder Burl on Spanish Cedar - $3750 + $400
    • Wenge Wedge Neck (Wenge/Yellowheart/Maple/Yellowheart/Wenge) - $600
    • African Tulipwood Fretboard - $100
    • Nordstrand DC5 Pickups - $275
    • Aguilar 3 Band EQ - $75
    • Diamondwood Nut - $75
    • Roscoe Hard Case -$200

    The Roscoe hard shell case has the original letter from Keith Roscoe, the 2 allen keys, and the lock key for the case.

    Although I am relatively new to TalkBass (with no significant feedback here), I have a 100% positive feedback rating on over 100 transactions since 1999 on the bay (ashman8).

    Someone asked for some audio samples. Here are 6 samples, all via GarageBand (no effects), with all EQ settings at the mid point. There are 6 samples:
    (bridge pickup, both pickups, neck pickup) x (lower register, upper register)

    I just tried to play anything that revealed the tonal range of the instrument, nothing fancy here. The roundwound strings feel like medium gage-ish. I'm not sure what kind they are, but they feel and sound pretty new.

    Someone better go for this soon before I come to my senses... This instrument is starting to feel pretty good after all...

    I'm very interested. Can you compare the cedar/tulipwood tone to ash/maple?

    Wish I could, but as I said in the original post, this is my first and only Roscoe. That's why I posted the audio samples above.

    Sorry everyone- I'm going to be a bit flakey. After I made those audio samples I kept playing and playing and playing this Roscoe, and now I can't put it down. I've decided to keep it. I apologize to everyone for the (totally unintentional) tease!

    I'll close this thread now.
