    Now, remove your elbow from the shift key and type that again :p .

    But seriously, try to use caps sparingly.

    Nice bass. I don't have one to show yet, but hopefully soon. After playing a Roscoe SKB 3006, I don't want one. I need one. It's just a matter of time. :)

    Yeah, I think that with my F Bass BN6 and Modulus Quantum 5, a Roscoe would be a perfect compliment to them. If I had the cash right now, I would buy the one in the classifieds that emjazz has for sale there. If his is gone when I have the cash lined up, I guess it's time to call Gard or Adrian and see what they have for me.

    I just purchased this bass from GARD as well as an AGUILAR DB 750. He is a great guy!

    I figured you really wanted this bass. ;)

    Well, it doesn't seem to be rushing out the door. Honestly, when it sells, it sells. It sounds so incredible that I'm not dying to get rid of it. I'm just going to order a custom six when it does go. I will truley miss the Roscoe though. I'll definately get another down the line. Keith just won't make exactly what I'm looking for so for now I have to go elsewhere. If I had the money to just buy a new one outright I'd keep the Roscoe for sure.

    By the way Joey, great looking bass! How do you like the Demeter pre?

    Here's mine.

    I thought about getting the Demeter in mine until I tried one out. Not a bad sound if I was a slapper but I much prefer the Bart for fingerstyle.

    That is sooooooooo beautiful! I love the one piece top. Does that one have the 3/4" spacing at the bridge?

    See, I'm a fingerstyle player and I didn't like the Bart pre at all. I'm so glad that Keith offers the Demeter pre. Of coarse, mine's a little different being that it's the stock Demeter. I'm really curious to hear the difference in the Roscoe/Demeter preamp.

    Your six came out fabulously. It's a real looker for sure.
     
  14. WOW! Love that buckeye!

    Both beautiful basses. I really like the one piece body with the natural tops. The DEMETER is great for fingerstyle as well as slapping. It is super quite too!

    Joey,
    Nice looking Roscoe! I would imagine that the Roscoe sounds very warm through the Aguilar.
    Here's a couple of pictures of mine.

    Andrew,
    Are two extra notes that important? ;)
    I may try the Demeter in my fretted Roscoe again. The Demeter in my Gecko died and when it returns from Demeter I'll have to decide which bass get its.

    What a great looking fretless!

    You know, I ask myself that same question everyime I play the Roscoe live........... :meh: I do want the pickups in a different place though. Actually, I'm listening to some Marcus Miller right now........maybe I should just get an F bass for that killin jazz bass tone.....I guess it never ends. Truthfully, the Roscoe can't be beat. Different tone but it's great indeed.
