Update on Custom Roscoe Projects for Kurt & Russ

The finishing touches were recently added to the custom Roscoe of all custom Roscoes, featured above. Kurt opted for a custom 34" scale length for his SKB 3006, a wedge neck (wenge, yellowheart, and maple), ebony covers with exposed pole pieces for the Nordstrand Dual Coils, mini switches for each pickup, and a unique custom paint job. Per Kurt's instructions, the top is finished in a custom blueburst and the back was left natural. This one turned out great! You can see additional photos of Kurt's bass, showcasing some of it's custom features, at the Sold Basses Gallery at the Blueberry Hill site.
Russ was lucky enough to grab this top (which I was secretly hoping I might be able to keep for myself) and will soon be taking delivery of a stunning SKB 3005. In this photo, the light amber color has been applied and the clear gloss is being sprayed this week. This one isn't too far from being completed, and I guarantee it will be absolutely amazing! Russ is going to be one happy bass player when he gets his hands on this one!!!
