    Roscoe SKB 3005 Custom 5-string bass
    Very rare one piece swamp ash body
    Strikingly beautiful cherry burst finish
    11 piece (!) maple/wenge/maple neck
    35" scale
    24 fret Cocobolo fretboard
    Adjustable bridge string spacing (currently 18mm)
    1.75" Graphite nut
    Nordstrand dual coil pickups
    Very rare and fantastic sounding Demeter 3-band preamp with passive mode
    Weight: Only 8 lbs. 5 oz.
    Includes nice quality Crossrock gig bag in perfect condition

    Cosmetic issues:
    One tiny ding on the back, on the body edge near the neck pocket (see pics #18, 19)
    A few tiny hairline scratches in the clearcoat on the back near the cavity covers. Very difficult to see, and I couldn't get them to show up in photos.
    Otherwise looks mint. Neck and fretboard are as-new.

    When I received the bass, the rear cavity covers had some light belt buckle scratches.
    I contacted Keith Roscoe to get replacements, and he asked me to send the bass to him so the new ones would be a perfect fit.
    The new covers still have the protective film on them.
    While Keith had the bass, I also had him PLEK it for $150, which made the frets perfectly level. This made an already awesome bass even more awesome, which I did not think would even be possible.

    This is unquestionably one of the best playing, best sounding, best feeling, and best looking 5-string basses that I have ever encountered.

    I guarantee you will be absolutely delighted with it, or I will gladly take it back in the condition received for a full refund including shipping.

    $2,500 plus ACTUAL shipping via the carrier of your choice (FedEx or UPS preferred)

    Sorry, no trades.
