NBD: Fender Roscoe Beck Fiver.

Post by martyforrer » Thu May 17, 2012 10:16 am

Yay! I just scored a 2003 RBV in 10 out of 10 condition. Not a single blemish, even has the plastic protector still on the pickguard. Even the case is perfect. I dont think its ever been played. It's Lake Placid Blue with white pickguard and Pau Ferro fingerboard. I'll put up a pic in the weekend. These are passive, but are like a Jazz bass on steroids with side by side pickups, series/parallel/single coil taps. I'm a happy camper.

I've been informed by the experts in the Roscoe Beck forum that it's Teal Green Metallic, that only four stringers came in Lake Placid Blue. My eyesight must be affected by my rose coloured glasses.... :D

Oh yeah, my LC dvds get a hammering, especially Songs From The Road. There's no better band in the world IMO.

Yeah, that's a nice looking bass. :D I've read about the RB, but never seen one - and lake placid blue is what i was considering painting my squier jazz. Wicked colour.

Gee I'd hate to think why Marty.
That's a really nice bass.
