Here is a Century shape bass with an beautiful quilted maple top over a resonant Spanish Cedar body, a Diamondwood fingerboard and three piece maple neck. The bass is finished off with a Bartolini 3 band preamp with switchable low/high mid for great control over fretless tones adding either more or less honk or more or less warmth and the superb Bartolini JJ pickups in the JB position for a really inspirational bass full of punchy tones with real depth, control and plenty of mwaaah!

Had the fretted 4 & 5 string en fretless 6 string version of this,  excellent basses all of them and they probably had the best playability of all the >200 basses I´ve owned so far, Keith Roscoe knows how to build a good bass for sure! ;)

I played this at BassDirect, loved it, sadly, timing is a few months too soon for me. Fingers crossed on a windfall! Only played Roscoe basses (apart from a short stint with an Ibanez) since 2013, fantastic in all respects.
