[FS] Roscoe LG 3005, *New Pics + Ridiculous New Price* $XXXX (Yes, I'm losing a lot)

Post by swalexbass » 17 Aug 2018, 10:21

New Price of $2,899. This is so insane. FYI, this instrument cost me over $4,200 to import from overseas only a couple months ago (including shipping+import duties).

I brought it to try it, really like it but I'm just preferring my James Tyler over all my other basses at the moment. Yes, I'm losing a lot of money on it, but I still respect this bass and it really deserves a lot more love. Basses have feelings too! :cry Looking for a new home where it can get the love that it deserves.

Hi Ozbass,

Here is something you don't see often coming up for sale - Roscoe LG 3005, 100% handmade in the USA. Roscoe basses are widely renowned as the king of finger-tones. Very balanced, rich, articulate tone - and one of the best B strings in the business. Please PM me to express your interests.

The bass has a really comfortable ergonomic body, is very light as well. The photos don't do it justice, it looks stunning in person.

Includes the beautiful Roscoe original moulded foam case. Feel free to contact me for sound samples, or any other enquiries. Thank you.

Thanks for reading, specification and pictures below:

Specifications:
Body: Mahogany
Neck: Maple+Tulipwood
Fingerboard: Tulipwood
Top: Tiger Maple
Electronics: Custom Bartolini Pickups and Aguilar Preamp

Yes, also known as tulipwood. ;)

"Tulipwood is a relative of the Rosewood family and has a sound similar to a hypothetical blend of Rosewood and Maple."

Ok, that's a good enough explanation for me :)

Very nice bass.

Thanks! It really is a nice bass indeed, I'm trying to thin my herd but it's really tempting to just keep it :)

If my MTD 535-24 sells before this one, I will be withdrawing the sale.

Now accepting trade offers for this one as well. Cash is king, but @+cash is also considered.

Re: [FS/FT!] Roscoe LG 3005 Custom! *Final Price Reduction*

Post by swalexbass » 29 Aug 2018, 13:32

Final price reduction to $3,799. This is cheaper than a lot of the prices in USA, and there's no shipping + import duties. Really good price for a killer bass. Can provide sound samples to serious buyers, you will be surprised at how good the tone is on this thing.
