    I didn't think I would ever sell this one but since it doesn't get any play and my wife is going back to school I suppose I could use the money.
    Here is a pretty rare Roscoe that you don't see very often anymore. This is the old SKB body style, neckthrough! It has a five piece body with an extremely figured maple top and back, accents, surrounding a great piece of mahogany and matching headstock. Bart p/u's and 2 band preamp and the Roscoe lightweight HSC. It's in excellent condition with just a few very small indentation's. It plays and sounds great. NO TRADES. $2500

    Hello. The fingerboard is cocobola and the number is 2222. This thing has a warmer growl and more mwah than the SKB 5 I had and you tried out. Very cool bass.

    Yeah it was which is essentially where SKB comes from: SKyscraperBass. And also given the quality of top would designate it an Icon. It's great bass which makes me wish Keith would make N/T again, and I usually don't like N/T's.

    $2500 OR BEST OFFER for anyone that's interested.
