    Roscoe SKB Standard Plus 5 Flame Maple

    For sale, Roscoe SKB Standard Plus 5 String Bass, includes the original Roscoe hard shell case. I am the original owner, 4 years young from the store, played lightly for 3 years. Excellent condition with a minor wear mark near the PUP and lightly used frets, (see pics for detail). IMHO, tight open B string, balanced tone across all frets. Flat tone in neutral EQ position, minor EQ adjustments significantly changes the tone. Easy to dial in a growl, punch or chill tone with the onboard Bartolini preamp and EQ.

    This is the original store advertisement;

    “Normally Century Standard Pluses come with veneer tops but we Gard Lewis the production manager at Roscoe look for tops that were too thin to use on Custom series basses or to slice into multiple veneers. Out of the finalists we selected this pretty 6mm thick flame maple top. It not only looks great but is thick enough to affect the tone as well as the appearance of the bass. The mahogany body provides thick punchy low mids & a crisp upper end while the maple top extends the treble response & focuses the bass. This bass has a focused articulate finger tone and a stellar slap sound.

    Roscoes are a breeze to play. The bodies are well balanced & elegantly sculpted making them not only beautiful but easy to wear even for extended periods. At 9 pounds 6 ounces this one has the perfect balance of comfort vs punch. Bartolini soapbar pickups & 3 band 18 volt preamp with push/pull mid frequency shift give the player total tonal control. Subtly fine tuning the natural sound of the instrument or altering it drastically are equally simple. The 24 frets on the 35" scale pao ferro fingerboard are perfectly crowned making playability a breeze & access to the upper register is effortless. Hand carved graphite nut & black Hipshot hardware ice the cake.”

    Price reduced to $1,800, includes free shipping

    Here's a link to live video captured on a camcorder to provide a demo of the tone. The bass cabs are single 10" LDS, great growl and cut at low or high volume. Also easy to dial in chill / soft tone
