    So...I love these basses. They are a bit of a rare find (at least on the internet). Does anyone have one? can you post some pics?

    I don't have one, but a few have ordered them from me. You can find photos at the BHB site (sorry...I can't post them here). Personally, I really like the shape. Two thumbs up from Chicago. ;)

    A thread with the word, "Roscoe" in it. I'm in... It's a sickness.

    BTW: Love the Century Signature shape and carved body, but don't have one... yet.

    I'm still kinda deciding if the wedge neck and body shape are worth the extra scratch being that i do so love my SKB:D but as of now, i have major GAS for the Cent. Sig. VI:bassist:

    I have one just love it. I need to take the time to post a picture of it. I'll see what I can do tonight with the old camera - If you want to see it in action go here www.mckinneygospelchoir.com and go to the gallery.

    THANKS SO MUCH JPJ!!! This is one of the very few century signatures you can see on-line (I saw it at your web site, actualy I go to the BBHB web site at least once a day). The other one is Gard's. Back in January there was a bubinga topped one that went to Europe and pics were posted in some bass trader web site in England I believe. Those are the 3 I've seen so far.

    The Century is my favorite Roscoe. Definitely on my GAS list.

    The first Century Sig 4, pics thanks to my Gardfather. Will Baby Jesus cry when Keith sprays the burst over this top? :confused: :confused: :confused:

    Not as long as you keep it to an amber burst or "clear burst". :)

    It's kind of going to be a narrowband '59 burst...just a little black on the edges. I don't think it will cover up much wood.
