    Update: PRICE DROP - $2000 shipped!

    I am selling my recently purchased Skjold Custom Offset '92 to make way for a custom build. I bought this bass in March from BIGREDSIX and his description was spot on so I will shamelessly copy/paste from his ad.

    Specs:
    Ash Body
    Flame maple top / headstock
    Bubinga fretboard
    5 piece maple/Purpleheart neck
    Zero fret
    35" scale
    18mm spacing
    12" radius at the nut and 18" at the 24th fret
    Skjold split coil pickups
    Skjold/East preamp
    Dunlop strap locks
    ~ 8 lbs (very very light and well balanced)

    Skjoldcustom5top.
    Skjoldcustom5full.
    Skjoldcustom5back.
    Skjoldcustom5headstock.

    Ships in a padded Levy's gig bag also in mint condition.

    This is a phenomenal, world class instrument in MINT condition. Pete Skjold told me that a new build with these options would run $4000. I am selling this one for $2000 shipped FedEx ground to anywhere in the lower 48 US. Paypal is the preferred method of payment.

    Purpleheart accent line - Mmmmm flames
    DSC01998.
    Extremely low action - in fact this has been raised from what BIGREDSIX was using but there was no buzzing when the action was set even lower
    DSC01997.
    Even more flames...and laundry
    DSC02011.

    Here is a link to the original thread:
    Skjold CS5

    Check out what people are saying about this bass - it plays like butter and is probably the most versatile bass I've ever owned.
     
  11. Gorgeous bass and these play extremely well - I have it's twin in dragon-burst. Nice price too.

    I've gotten several trade offers, but there are only a few things I'm looking for:

    F-Bass BN5

    Sadowsky NYC Vintage 5 Ash/Maple (+cash from me)

    Millennia TD-1 (+cash from you)

    Possibly an Accugroove El Whappo Jr or Bergantino AE410 (both +cash from you)

    My first choice is still to sell this outright.

    sure you don't want to add a Skjold Custom 4 or Valenti PJ5 to that list? :)

    I'm very surprised that Valenti is still here. That's a lot of bass for that price.

    Wow, I just looked at all the pics of everyone playing this bass. She's so...used! :D

    Great-looking bass with a seemingly very versatile pre. It has been running through my mind for a couple of days now, which usually means trouble.

    Just wanted to reiterate that although there are pics of some famous talkbass players playing this bass, it is in MINT condition - In fact I cannot find a flaw on it and I'd say that's a tribute to BIGREDSIX taking such excellent care of the bass while he had it.

    The sweepable mids and 4 position selector knob do make this bass very versatile. Position 2 (both pickups in series) is probably my favorite position because it is punchy as hell, but its always nice to go from nice fingerstyle punch to a great slap sound just by switching to position 3 (both pickups parallel).

    If my wife would allow me to keep more than one bass at a time, this would definitely not be for sale.

    The pics definitely show an instrument in fantastic condition. The fact that so many TB'ers have great things to say is also a plus.
