Whew! Just raised my self-esteem (Roscoe)....

  1. The bass with the same name as my favourite L.A. area chicken and waffles place. I traded a Fender Sting P-Bass plus some cash for it. I love it! Blue is my fav, and so is 35" scale. This one has the Bartolini pickups and an Aguilar OBP-1, which is boost-only. I just got it this afternoon so I'm still learning the preamp, but it's so much fun, I don't mind having to figure out something new.

    Forgot to mention that it's the LG-3005 model.

  6. Hey Dan, it must be the lighting. The bass is a sort of medium blue colour.

  11. Big time congrats on a darn beautiful bass. I am saving for a SKB3005 fretless. Great sounding and great playing basses. And pretty good looking too.
     
  12. I bet that, with the maple fingerboard and Aguilar preamp, that thing is an amazing slapper, which is a good find in a Roscoe.

    Congratulations.

    GOOD choice! Congrats! I love my Roscoe fretless, and I don't think I would trade it for anything.

    Of course, my Roscoe 6 string fretless is for sale...:D


    Congrats, FC! That is a BEAUTIFUL bass.

    Very nice, I believe I would keep that one and the 535 for longer than a few weeks, if I were you.

    Thats one of the nicest Roscoes I've saw. Hey, just curious how much cash did you add? I really love that bass dude :D
     
  17. I just gave the guy my Sting Bass (that I just got yesterday!) and some chicken, and some waffles! And that was it! Oh, and $800.

    Very nice, Funky! Roscoes have great B's, and that maple board should add the brightness that wasn't in the Roscoes that I have played.

    That top is killer!!!
