    Greg, What's the most expensive Roscoe you've sold at Rocket?

    I'm assuming this has the potential to be one of them if Adam specs out this Monster at $6,350 :eek:

    Adam this sucker better turn the buyer into the bastar'child of Jaco, Wooten, and Tal Wilkenfeld.:smug:

    OR Have the ability to "Hum" and double as a ladies "toy" when the buyer is not using it.:D:bag:

    I think the most expensive Roscoe I've sold was either my personal Koa Century Sig V, or it might have been one of the two that Adam put in the little lady's hands for photo fun time.

    It probably doesn't count if I sold it to myself, does it? :)

    Oh yes, I will. . . mwah ha ha ha ha :D

    It will certainly be easier for me to move if you scale back the beast a bit... just a thought...

    Was that a pressure sale?:ninja::rolleyes::D

    How long did it take for you to talk yourself into it in the corner of Rocket?

    Greg: I wanna Century Sig V NOW! With a Koa Top Too!

    SalesGreg: Eh I'm sorry but we dont have that particular configuration in stock. BUT WE CAN ORDER IT FOR YOU!:D

    Greg: Damn man How long's that gonna take?:mad:

    SalesGreg: I'll have to get a hold of Gard over at Roscoe but don't worry He's a friend of mine and I'm sure we can hook you up quick fast and in a hurry.

    Greg: OK Man but hurry up I ain't got all day ya know. I got a guy on the other line about some Barden pickups and some DR strings.

    SalesGreg: Gard says that configuration will take 4-6 weeks to complete.:eek:

    Greg: WHAAA?:confused:

    SalesGreg: But if you'll order it from me instead of Blueberry Hill, I'll treat you to a case of Bud Light on Me. MMKAY? Oh and my buddy Gard said he'd treat us both to some ribs or sushi YOUR CHOICE. And I Will PERSONALLY drive you to Greensboro to pick it up.

    Have we got a deal?

    Greg: This is a poor excuse for a music store man, Y'all don't even stock the simple stuff I want. DAYUM:mad:.................................................................
    Who owns this dump?

    SalesGreg: BUUUUURRRRRRRPPP!!!! That'd be myself. Have one of these Buds and think it over.

    Greg: OK Man ring it up but I ain't paying you until delivery. And that Bud better be COLD! I ain't drinkin' the hot stuff. And I damn sure can't handle them Fat Tires, Who do you think I am, this Buddy of yours "Gard"? He's got a rep ya know.





    OK Greg, How far am I off?






    :bag:






    :D

    Ah, Ray, you TOTALLY missed the "how am I going to explain this to the wife" angle :) That's by far my biggest consideration when I mess with this sort of stuff for myself. At some point, the missus must be informed :bawl: Of course, SalesGreg has little to offer to alleviate that problem, other than empathy and a shoulder to cry on.

    My latest angle is "But, darling sweetheart, I'll be able to sell so many MORE Roscoes because I own a Roscoe myself..." Which is genuinely true, because there's no higher praise I can give a manufacturer than to play their stuff. Not that me playing someone's bass/pedal/amp means a hill of beans to the manufacturer, just if I play it personally then I obviously believe in the line. That definitely carries some weight with my customers.

    Anyway, that's the tack I'm going to take when I let the wife know about my new fretless... which I unfortunately can't do until somebody BUYS MY WARWICK!!!! :help:

    Very much so, considering you have so many incredible basses within hands reach, that you chose Roscoe does say something.

    Well, that's pretty insightful for an Irishman... Oh, wait, I made that point initially. Never mind :eek:

    That's pretty insightful for an Appalachian hillbilly like myself :D

    Now that I think about it, it seems to be a trend with Roscoe dealers to own Roscoes themselves, hmmm..........

    Yeah, they're pretty hard to resist. I fell in love as soon as the first one arrived. From then on, it was pretty much just a question of when I'd own one (or two), not if...

    Maybe they become Roscoe dealers b/c they want to get Roscoes for themselves at a discount rate. Hmmm.

    Any decent salesman will use the products they sell to have practical application theories, It's just good business and a TAX WRITEOFF!:D

    Just so happens your products are custom Roscoe basses and not hemorrhoid cream.;) I wish I could be so lucky:p.

    And Greg I wouldn't take a "tack" when you let your wife know of the fretless (Unless she likes to play pin the tail on the Roscoe salesman) but I would try and use some tact.:ninja::D.

    Good luck selling the 'wick and please don't take me serious.

    +1 Where you at Poach, I've had time to derail your thread and insult Greg and everything.

    God Bless, Ray
     
  18. I'd just like to note that my man, Darkstrike, is very Irish for an insightfulman.
