  • Comments:  Not only is the the first walnut-topped Roscoe that BHB has ever done, but it is also the first "faux neck-through" that Roscoe has ever done. The figured (lightly flamed) walnut and highly flamed maple used for the 5-piece top are both absolutely stunning, and the color themes running through the instrument make for a very classy looking bass without being "over the top". The birdseye used for the fingerboard is amazing, and the bass sounds and plays great! Classic Roscoe all the way!

  • Comments:  The myrtle burl top on this LG is absolutely stunning. Myrtle has a terrific iridescent quality, and it gleams and shimmers in the light unlike most other wood species. However, as amazing as this bass's top is, the exhibition grade birdseye maple fingerboard is absolutely out of this world. In fact, this has to be one of the best (if not THE best) birdseye maple 'board I've ever seen on a Roscoe!

  • Comments  This is a unique bass that should catch the eye of someone looking for a "one off" Roscoe. This project came about due to one piece of interesting black limba that Keith Roscoe had acquired. By bookmatching the piece with the sapwood in, we were able to play on the two-toned color of the wood as well as highlight the stripes and dark/light color striations in the outer portions of the top. Matched with a beautiful piece of swamp ash, this turned out to be one great bass!

  • Comments: Featuring one of Roscoe's most popular colors, the exhibition quilt figure on this top really pops, and it looks great next to the pau ferro fingerboard. The electronics package is "new school Roscoe" and would great for slapper or fingerstyle players looking for the widest tonal palatte possible.

  • Spalted/flamed maple top
  • Maple/purpleheart/maple neck
  • Pau ferro fingerboard
  • Bartolini pickups
  • Bartolini 3-band preamp
  • Black hardware

  • Comments:  If you love the tone, playability, and craftsmanship of Roscoe basses but prefer a more conservative, traditional look, this SKB would be an outstanding choice. The spalted/flamed maple top is truely "exhibition" grade, and the color of the stripped pau ferro fingerboard is an great compliment to the natural, woody vibe of this bass. Oh...and it sounds killer, too!

  • The following pieces of figured myrtle are some of the most amazing that I have ever seen. If you look in the two Roscoe sold galleries, you will see that we have sold some nice basses featuring some top-notch myrtle tops, but I don't know if any of them come close to these! All of these are currently available for custom orders.

 

  • Like the figured myrtle tops above, the following maple tops are some of the most unique we have ever had here at Blueberry Hill. We take great pride in offering the very best exhibition quilt tops available. If you're going to get a nice bass, it may as well have a NICE top! The tops shown below are not only incredibly unique, but many of them feature multiple types of figureing: quilt, flame, curl, burl, spalt, etc. All of these tops are currently available for custom Roscoe projects.

 

  • This piece of insanely figured walnut is on reserve and is available for a custom order. Let us know if you would like this top for your bass.
  • This is an outstanding piece of exhibition quilted burl maple. Call or e-mail if you would like to use this for your own custom Roscoe.

 

  • The exhibition figured maple tops below are some of the best that I have seen in a long time. Figured maple is relatively easy to come by, but the REALLY nice pieces are becoming increasingly harder to find and are also becoming more and more expensive. If you like exhibition figured maple, I would definately recommend claiming one of these for your custom Roscoe project.
