Hmm. That fingerboard is certainly..."interesting"
*makes quotation finger- gestures* ...partly fretted, partly
fretless...alright, that's "interesting" too i guess
*does it again* ...I'm not crazy about the "rough hewn"
look...caveman weapon-bass...? Oh Hey!! I used to have shoes
like that when I was in intermediate school! Alright!!!
This is a Roscoe bass (yes, this is by the same
Mr. Roscoe that builds those beautiful high-end basses nowadays).
Stop laughing, I'm serious. You can kind of see the similarity
of the body shape - well, you have to make believe you don't
see big hole... there, see it? This is a hot rodded bass: three
pickups, three throw switches (with LED's, mind you), a bunch
of knobs, nifty 70's race-car graphics, AND a big hole. The hole
allows you to...carry it around like a...briefcase?
(visit the roscoe
website! they are wonderful guys. they do not, however, still
offer the skyscraper bass as part of their current line. perhaps
you can beg them to reissue it?)
