    Up for sale or possible trade: My Korean built Jerry Scheff in Shoreline Gold. Fans of this model know it's a cool bass with a unique voice of it's own. 2 lipstick pickups with a 3-band preamp, passive bypass mode... It's in very good condition with no major dings. I don't have the original case, but I'm sure I have something to sell it in.

    I played this bass a lot over the years, but in the last 6, it has not had much use, except for recently being featured on the LOG CD Resonance on the track "Scheff Salad". It's a wonderful bass, very versatile, plays great, etc.

    I'm asking $900 plus shipping.

    The only trade possibilities I'm interested in are a lightweight Musicman Stingray 5H, or a lightweight G&L L2500 (non-Tribute). If there is a price difference, I'll deal with it. For these instruments... lightweight means below 9.5lbs.

    Killer basses!

    Ed, you don't realize it, but I got my gold Skyline Scheff after you gushed about this one over at the old Dudepit.

    I'm very happy that I bought one. The neck on mine is to die for! No foolin'!

    Is this the bass that appeared on Scheff Salad?

    Yes, it's the bass I used on Scheff Salad.

    The bass is currently on hold. Firm buyer, but I need to get it inspected... pots are acting funny after not being used much. So, consider this one gone folks.

    I run a pot inspection service and would be glad to inspect the bass at my secret laboratory.

    No pot I've ever inspected has caused a sale to fall through.

    You just might catch a few posts by Ed himself as he describes his experiences with this bass. Watch out for the high volumes of traffic... lol

    Yeah, no doubt the Scheff is a great bass. Useful in many different directions. But I just have to look around the rack and see what gets played and what doesn't. After a few years... it's time to recirculate the energy, get something else.

    Can't argue with that thinking.

    Ed, Look carefully and see if you might have a USA made 5 string SCHEFF laying around. That has my searchlight on? I have the 5 string Korean, which is great....but the USA might be "much more greater" :)

  20. Saw this one live in action during School Of Bass in Scottsdale a few years back. It is a killer. One of you guys needs to have this. If you talk to him nicely he might leave some of that Friedland mojo on it.
