    Will consider trades for shorter scale 5-string bass, 33" preferred.
    Selling my Roscoe SKB-5 Custom with Exhibition Koa Top & Matching Headstock, Mahogany body, 35" scale
    Nordstrand pickups custom wound for
    Keith Roscoe Bass.
    Aguilar OBP-3 preamp
    maple neck w/purpleheart center
    pau ferro fretboard, & black hardware.
    9.0lbs on my bathroom scale.
    The neck has just a small bit of relief & the action is nice & low.
    $1,800.00 Shipped/CONUS

    This is a gorgeous bass with one exception, the original owner drilled 3 small holes to mount a Roland Midi pickup (2 on top, 1 on back, hence the low price). Guess he didn't know about double sided sticky tape, UGH?!?
    The way I see it there are 3 good options,
    1. Ignore the holes or install 3 small screws & enjoy the bass,
    2. Send it to a luthier to fill & re/clear
    3. Re-install a Roland Midi pickup.
    In no way does this affect the sound or tone & only noticeable close up.
    This Bass is very lightly played, and well maintained, fretboard regularly cleaned & oiled, no marks or wear to the frets or fretboard, no scratches or swirl marks in the clear coat, the Roscoe HSC is very nice, never gigged.

    A couple of small holes wouldn’t stop me grabbing this if I had the cash.
    Great deal!

    Holy Smokes, this bass is gorgeous. Too bad you're not interested in trades.
