    This bass was loaned to CliffD while his custom Roscoe was being built (long story, not something I usually do). He had it for just under 3 months, and he sent it back in like-new condition. Thanks for taking such great care of it, Cliff!!

    Since it is now technically a used bass, I'm happy to knock quite a bit off the price and make somebody a great deal on this 100% made-in-USA 6-String bass. $2725 is what it would have gone for new, but I'm happy at $2199 OBO.

    Don't sleep too long on this one, I don't expect it to hang around long!

    Folks this bass kicks butt! I loved the tone it produced, the ash body is nice and dense and paired with the maple board and CBs gave me some seriously edgy tone. If Greg hasn't changed the strings it has DR fatbeams with standard Roscoe six gauges. I think the neck is on the thinner side as well, it plays very fast! Someone's gonna get a killer deal!

    Man! You can stay off line very long around here or you'll snooze and lose!

    Great score Stefan! That is a nice looking Standard Plus!

    ...I also like the way the bridge matches the strings and frets! :)

    I hope so.

    I was about to buy the new Century Standard 6-string Greg has in stock yesterday.
    Then Greg posted this bass.

    Timing couldn't be more perfect.

    I'm a whore. :scowl:


    Actually, I want a 6-string fretted for another project I might be doing.


    Let's just say I need an extended range bass that has the looks of a classic organ.
    This bass fits that perfectly with that wood combo. :D


    In my metal band (which is just four dudes jamming, not much gigging) I'm still a 4-string fretless bassist.

    Actually, the last weeks I haven't been around much on TalkBass.
    Too busy at work.

    By sheer luck this morning I had a few minutes free time, visited the Rocket forum...
    and WHAM.... :eek: it struck me.
    Couldn't be more perfect.

    E-mailed Greg right away.

    :hyper:

    I will try my friend. :)

    Glad you snagged it. ;) Now you can school me on thumping a sixer.



    May be.... But at least your a high class one (with Roscoes):smug:

    Some folks are hoes for Chicken McNuggets:eek::smug:

    Here follows your new greeting;


    Hello Everybody I'm Stefan the Belgian, a Roscoe Sniper Extrordanaire.

    btw, 6 and/or 5 -string Roscoeheads,

    Anyone tune ADADGC?
    I play mostly DADG on 4-string, so I thought I would extend that tuning.

    How does the the lowest string sound dropped a step?


    I'm planning to get a new rig for this new project and new bass.

    Tech21 Leeds Character Series pedal (Hiwatt ampsim) -> poweramp -> Barefaced Big One (fEarful like fullrange cab)

    and effects:

    Maxon CP9Pro+ -> Digitech Bad Monkey -> EBS TremoLo -> delay or reverb maybe


    Since the guitarist and keyboardist I play with are in a rut at the moment, I might try something solo bass or bass + drummer.
    I want to sound like an overdriven Hammond organ through a Leslie. :)


    I needed a new bass for that, not a fretless and since I need a bigger range: a 6-string.
