Keith Roscoe receiving "Best bass at show" at Summer NAMM 2013 for the Century Standard + 5 PJ

Submitted on the 20th March 2010 by Marc who purchased a Roscoe CS5+ fretless bass.

Hi Mark - well, I've had the fretless for 2 weeks now, and it really is the best bass I've ever played. The neck is perfect, and the sound from the bridge p/up is amazing. I haven't gigged it yet, but when i do i'll probably end up playing 90% of the set with it, as it's that good.

Thanks for all of your help in selling my basses ,and I'm sure i'll be back sometime soon. I wish you continued success with the business.

Kind Regards, Marc Reynolds.

Hi Mark


Just a little note to say how much I'm enjoying the Roscoe SKB3005 I bought from you about 3 weeks ago.  A tremendous bass - feels wonderful, looks wonderful and sounds absolutely fantastic.  So versatile as well.  Since buying it I've played gigs with my regular indie-rock covers band, a couple of jazz sets and a show with a folky singer-songwriter and in all contexts the bass has come up trumps with only the tiniest tweak of the onboard EQ and judicious use of the pick pan.  I feel a bit sorry for my old bass - can't see me picking it up again in the near future!  The best praise I can give is that even our guitar player, who being a guitarist, needless to say usually listens to his guitar and closes his ears to pretty much everything else, came up after our first set playing the Roscoe and was full of the highest praise for the sound.


Many thanks for your patience when I was trying the basses out, and for holding on to it whilst I ummed and ahhed about buying it!


See you soon
