Your favorite Roscoe?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by rob_the_bassist, Apr 16, 2006.

  1. I'm completely new to Roscoe instruments, and i was wondering what are your favorite Roscoe models n setups. Preferably for a 6-string bass but it doesn't matter
  2. Calling all Roscoeheads - Calling all Roscoeheads -

    Gard, Bassmanbob, JPJ, James, brian, bunnybass, emjazz, joker, and all those that are too numerous to mention:

    Well , my favorite Roscoe would be an LG3005, but for 6 strings, Id go SKB3006. Swamp ash body, flamed redwood top, birdseye maple fingerboard, demeter preamp.

    i like the color combo of the first one better, but something about that second makes me drool even more.
  12. those are all very nice basses but can you list what model they are n what are the components of the bass (pickups, wood, top wood, neck)

    Wow what a nice bass!
    I really dig this one at blueberry hill bass
    And this one...
    Mine has the Demeter pre, and it definitely smokes. I don't think I have played a smoother onboard pre. It's crystal clear and the bass and treble boost/cut is very natural and smooth.

    If you look on blueberry hill's site Jay has the basic info listed for each bass.
    Here is the description of mine. It's got bart soapbars, and I am waiting on some custom knobs from Roger at THG (thanks again Gard for the extra wood!)
    SKB 3006, 3-piece ebony top (w/sapwood), grain-enhanced swamp ash body, wenge neck stringer, ebony fingerboard, 3-band Demeter preamp, custom 12th fret inlay, diamondwood nut, black hardware
  17. Ahem times 2!!

    The one funk slap posted is an SKB3005 with a cocobolo top.

    This is also my favorite type of wood top for Roscoes, highly figured Cocobolo. In fact this is what I am ordering my pair in. I'm trying not to talk too much about it in order to keep my anxiety level down, but I know Gard is probably tired of hearing me give him changes every 2-3 weeks for the past 2 months. :bag:

    Just waiting until Keith gets some body wood blanks cut before I make an official post with the "obligatory picture" that we all want to see. :p
  20. My favorite SKB-3006 model has been Exhibition Quilted Maple/Ash body/Wenge FB/Demeter pre. A close second has been the same specs but with a Maple FB.
