I'm posting some photos of my recently acquired, cocabola fronted Century 3005. These I've shamelessly "relocated" from the Bass Direct website till the weather improves and I get some decent ones done in daylight.

Keith Roscoe really does not limit the use of wood, each model is actually a combination designed to create a subtle instrument with a unique sound and look.
Here is my "combination"

Wow..the pattern in the Maple is so deep it actually looks like it's rippled and needs rubbing down..great optical illusion as well as a great bass..

Wow, love the quilt on the one above ^ looks very organic all in all.
Not much action here though, surely there must be some new additions across the BC community?

Stunning bass mate, do give me a bell if you ever decide to move it on! Take it it's tuned E-C?

It is indeed strung E-C (with a D-Tuner on the E). As for moving it on... Highly unlikely! I'll consider it if you offer me list price... but that'd make any man cry! lol
