    This bass is awesome. This is the best feeling, playing and sounding fiver I have had my hands on. Simple reality is that I am no longer five string player, and I refuse to have a bass this cool sitting and just looking pretty. I played this as my only bass for over a year and it served me well. I really do love it, but it no longer has a suitable purpose for me. Pete is a great luthier and a friend. One day I hope I am in a position to order a suitable 4string from him.

    Specs are:
    Primavera body w/flame maple stringers down the center.
    3 piece maple neck with Macassar Ebony Fretboard 35" scale
    Flamed Anigre inlay at the 12th fret
    Skjold C5 pickup (has four settings, a standard P, a reverse P, all coils in series, all coils in parallel)
    Passive with a Creation Labs redeemer circuit
    Shell Inlay Logo

    Comes with a Skjold labled Pro Tec Gig bag and a wide Red leather Skjold logo'd Strap.

    Its got a couple of minor blemishes. I put an eraserhead sized ding the body on the tummy cut the first time I took it to practice. Looks the same as the day I did it, sometimes I have to search for it to find it. Also, there is a little finish issue on the neck heel. This has been there since I got it and it has not gotten any worse. Pictures of both below.

    Price is $2450 shipped and insured in the US. Will not be shipping this overseas. Prefer a payment of a Paypal echeck. Local pickup would also be awesome. Will consider trades +cash on your end. Let me know what you got.

  2. This bass has the best B string of any fiver I've ever played, and it sounds truly amazing. I'd snap this up in a second if I had the cash. :)

    Best of luck on the sale, Paul.

    No.................way!!

    Paul, up until now I thought you were a man of reason and in your right mind.:scowl:

    Dude, keep the B string! Indeed, throwing the B-string baby out with the Skjold bathwater.

    Just over 9 pounds. For having a full sized P body and somewhat denser wood, its really not too bad. Of course the nice wide strap makes it especially nice.

    I am now interested in trades that concern your bass plus cash. Hit me up with your offers. There really isn't anything I am looking for in particular, but you never know.

    :eek:

    Seeing this bass (which i want ) sitting against the FATHOM HEAD in your pictures (I have a fathom as well) makes me want it even MORE!

    STUPID QUESTION...I love the sound of my '69 p vintage pickup into the 2/3 setting on the fathom, gain about 1'oclock. How "modern" is the p sound on this bass? Can I get to "old-school, thumpy, chunk" with the pickup in your 5-er?

    (sorry...I haven't played the style of bass you are selling)
