    I'm sticking with 4 string basses, so I have for sale my Skjold Lion's Pride model A (Jazz Bass style body) 5 string bass with custom ghost flame paint job. It's 35" scale and has a 2" nut. The body is black high-gloss polyester. The flame paint job was done for Pete Skjold by Mike DuSold in Lewisville, TX. As far as I know, this is the only bass he has ever painted. He is now very well known for his custom motorcycle paint jobs and has been featured on TV. The pickups are a Skold C4 and a Skjold SC1. The C4 is a 4-coil pickup the is a Precision/reverse Precision that is switchable by the mini toggle. The SC1 is a hum-cancelling single coil pickup. The preamp has volume, pickup blend, master tone, bass, treble, mid and mid sweep controls. The tone contol is push/pull for active/passive and the treble control is push/pull for bright. The neck is 3 piece maple and the fingerboard is morado (pao ferro).
    There are a few cosmetic issues. The back has a couple of little dimples in the clear coat. The upper horn has about a 1" shallow scratch (I photographed this as best I could). There is a piece of the clear coat missing on the front of the headstock, by the nut at the B string.
    I'm asking $2800.00 OBO shipped 2nd Day Air from Texas.
    I've had no luck uploading photos here, so the link to the photos is below:

    I owned this bass for a time and would loooooove to get it back! Looks awesome and sounds amazing. The sound was clean and aggressive, I'm a huge fan of that C4 pickup, the SC1 is really just a bonus pickup... the C4 kills! This is one of a select few basses I truly regret letting go.

    Thanks, it looks even better in person!
    The only reason I'm selling some stuff is to help pay for my mom's assisted living bills, so I will consider all offers.

    I am looking for a nice short-scale bass, so I would consider a cash/partial trade offer. :bassist:
