Bass of the Week: Roscoe Guitars Century Standard Plus 5HL

Roscoe Guitars Century Standard Plus 5HL Bass

Something (or maybe everything) about this Century Standard Plus from Roscoe Guitars really caught my attention while sifting through my Facebook feed. Between its slick headless design and dynamic cocobolo top, it stopped me dead in my tracks.

The five-string was also built with an alder body and pau ferro fingerboard with 24 frets. I really dig the off-kilter Bartolini CB pickups, which are matched to a 3-band preamp. This bass is a stunner.
