    For Sale or trade: Roscoe Signature SKB-3005

    This one is really special. Easily one of the best sounding Roscoe basses that I’ve ever owned (and I’ve owned a few). It has a wonderful open tone with just a nice hint of natural compression (think "Phat”).
    I’m no longer gigging at church and my need for a low B has just gone away. I’m pretty much playing classic rock style music these days and my Fender 4 strings and Roscoe Custom Century 5 PJ get it done (the Roscoe PJ is not as modern sounding as my Signature). I’m going to replace it with a boutique 4 string.
    Bass is in excellent condition with no dings, scratches or fret wear.
    The bass was also recently Plek at the Roscoe factory in Feb 2021. Plays with great low buzz free action.

    I also attached a sound clip of the bass (all bass tune). Recorded using Reason software. The bass has Roscoe OEM D'addario XL Nickel RW's installed.

    Wow. I’m stunned!
    Folks this is an amazing bass and a great TBer to do business with.
    I’ve played this one several times with some different configurations and as it sits now it is the ultimate Roscoe.
    At this price this bass is a steal!
    If I didn’t have a custom build going this bass wouldn’t leave Warner Robins. GLWTS!

    Joe, of all the Roscoes that I've seen of yours, this is definitely one of my favorites. You must have will power made of steel to let this one go. GLWTS!
