I was recently lucky enough to pick up a very old Roscoe bass for a really good price. Things like Roscoes don't come up very often in Europe, and since I'd always been a fan of his basses (based on looks and various comments I'd seen on the 'net), this seemed to be too good an opportunity to miss out on. So, having picked it up and played with it for a few days now, two things have struck me. First, this guy was making some superb quality basses even back in the early 90s - I can only imagine how good his current stuff is. The neck on the bass is superb, and the body, although not quite to my taste visually, is incredibly comfortable (it's the LG shape). Add on a nice sound, and it's a seriously pro-level instrument. The second thing that hit me was the enthusiasm and interest the guys at Roscoe have in their instruments, whether it be a brand new 7 string bass, or something Keith made back in the early 90s. I emailed Roscoe with some questions on Tuesday evening, and had heard back from Keith himself by the following morning. Gard also stepped in with a couple of emails to throw some additional light on the subject. It was such a pleasure to see these guys show this kind of interest, and yet, from everything I'd heard, it really came as no surprise. So props to you, Keith and Gard - keep up the good work. This is the bass here - it's got the original Roscoe headstock, which was obviously influenced by the 80s. Funny enough, it's actually a very well balanced headstock, completely unlike some of the other pointy headstocks out there.
