    Fantastic Roscoe SKB 3006 in a very beautiful Blueburst finish over Exhibition Quilt Maple. The top is like looking into a pool of beautiful water. The bass has a maple/wenge/maple neck, Pau Ferro fingerboard, mahogany body and a graphite nut. The pickups are slanted in the "Jimmy Haslip" direction which provides more clarity on the low strings and more beef on the 1st string. Sounds wonderful indeed. The bass is in new condition and has no issues of any kind. Everything works perfectly. Comes in the original Roscoe hardcase with the letter from Keith Roscoe and the tools included with the bass. IMG_2938_zpsh4htyzzp. IMG_2940_zpsfrqclcbc. IMG_2941_zpsystdas4h. IMG_2942_zpsvtejktmd. IMG_2943_zpsz0rm9i8v. IMG_2944_zpsmwhoznc2.

    Retail cost of the bass new would be $4930 with the options it has. Street price would be about $3700. My price is $2500 shipped to the lower 48 states.

    Not interested in trades. Need to fund the purchase of an upright bass.

    The close up pic of the body shows the actual color. The pic in the case has a purple cast to it but that is not the color of the bass.

    My old bass, too. Amazing bass. The reverse slant pups and mahogany body sound fantastic. The best sounding 6 string I have played.

    Yes it is terrific. If I didn't need the funds I would certainly keep it.

    What does the pickup position do to the tone? The pickups for these Roscoe basses are usually slanted the other direction. Right?

    Actually the PU slant on this bass makes perfect sense. The bass strings have increased clarity and the treble strings (especially the C string) have a fatter and less edgy tone.

    I believe Jimmy Haslip has his Roscoe basses built with this PU slant.

    This is a truly wonderful sounding 6 string.
