    NEW LOWER PRICE! Will consider high end trades, also.

    :bawl:

    OK, my Xotic hasn't sold and I need to put something back in the kitty, per mama. So here's my literally new condition, never-been-gigged Skjold LP5 that I acquired from Pete about a month ago. Hate to give it up but have to give it a shot. I will not be at all unhappy if this doesn't sell, BTW. ;)

    -- natural vintage ash body, maple neck, morado board
    -- Skjold single-coil pickups: these are a new version that Pete has been tweaking for a while and they sound GREAT!!
    -- Delano 3-band preamp: very transparent preamp that really allows the underlying single-coil tone to come through naturally. One can tweak to their hearts content and not find a bad tone. Whole different animal from the East preamp that many Skjolders are familiar with, and I have to say it fits this bass like a glove.
    -- weight just under 9 lbs
    -- spacing 18mm (adjustable)
    -- nut width 46 mm (1.81 in)
    -- neck profile: this is a newer jazz profile per Pete, and it feels REALLY comfortable. Shallow D-type profile (but not so much to be insubstantial), very fast, bass almost plays itself.
    -- Skjold craftsmanship and build quality: self-explanatory. :bassist:

    $2750 US is the **REVISED** asking price for this essentially new Skjold and I'm taking a pretty good hit on it, as you might imagine. Get it before mama relents or I come to my senses, whichever comes first.

    Paypal OK, USPS money order preferred.

    ***TRADES NOW CONSIDERED +/- cash: prefer 5-strings with 1 3/4" nut, no heavier than 10lbs.

    Comes with Skjold gig bag, includes pro packing and shipping to lower 48.

    Don't do it!!!! I don't miss a single one of my Fodera's I recently sold after getting my new Skjold. Pete's new neck shape is AMAZING, they play like butter!!!! But do what you got to do my friend.

    Yeah, and I kinda wish I had that one back, too! When this one goes I'll still have the black limba offset '92, so I will not be Skjold-less, hopefully ever again! :hyper:

    I played this bass last weekend - it sat in the mix REALLY well with minimal tweaking, and the playability is all you'd expect from a Skjold. One of the most comfortable basses I've ever owned.

    Practical considerations dictate that I still need to move it though, so...

    New lower price: $2750 :eek:

    Somebody will end up with a killer bass here.

    And I will consider trades - high-end basses with 34" scale preferred. A Rob Allen would be awesome.
