    I took these two Roscoes in on trade this weekend. I spent the morning cleaning them up, putting on fresh SIT Rock Brights Nickel strings (.045-.130), and finally setting them up. Both are really nice basses that play great!

    The guy who traded them in is a player, so these basses have indeed been played. They're definitely still in great shape, but there are a few minor cosmetic things that I mentioned in the individual listings that just happen when a bass gets played.

    The first bass is a Roscoe SKB-3005 with an exhibition grade Cocobolo top and fretboard. It's really some gorgeous wood. My favorite part is where the fretboard transitions to the headstock veneer. It looks like a continuous piece of wood, Roscoe really did a nice match there.

    The second bass is a gorgeous fretless with a fairly unique fingerboard - it's called blue diamondwood, and it looks like there's Abalone in the fretboard. It's blue in some lights, green in others, black in others. Very cool!!

    I'm a little flexible on these prices, so feel free to make me an offer!

    Wow, they're a lovely pair!

    I'd love to get an "in person" look at that blue diamondwood.

    Except for the glare this pic does a decent job of showing off the Maple top.
