    This bass plays and sounds like butter, lowest action I've ever owned. In fact, I will give any buyer a 24 hour approval period I'm that confident in its quality. Feel free to return minus shipping.
    There is some wear on the back and around the edges of the body although it is hard to see with the light colored wood. The top, neck, headstock, and frets are all like new condition.

    34 scale
    8.6 pounds
    deluxe pre
    spanish cedar body
    walnut top
    morado board
    awesome protec hard/soft gig bag
    18mm string spacing

    $2995 shipped, paypal accepted

    It decreases the depth underneath the strings for your plucking hand, which equals increased speed. Youtube Matt Garrison or Erskine to see.

    I'm going to try to record some clips of this bass tomorrow so you can hear how thick and rich in records in the mix.

    Yep, I think all Skjolds have a zero fret.

    Sold to a local buyer, I knew once someone played this bass they wouldn't be able to leave without it. Pete makes some of the best playing basses around, no joke.
