  1. Hard thing to do but new tires and my daughter's college bills require me to liquidate some assets:

    I asked Pete for a classic fingerstyle bass with a natural finish and let him know I was partial to one piece bodies. Here is what he came up with. Its an awesome playing and sounding bass as you would expect. Pete's work is nothing but amazing.

    Lion's Pride 5 String

    One piece white limba body
    9 lbs 14 ozs on a digital food scale
    maple neck
    Morado fingerboard
    2 band preamp
    Passive tone control
    Pete's strings (BEADG)

    Since i'm only selling to raise cash, i'm not interested in ANY trades. I would like to get$2100 for the bass shipped in an Access gig bag to the CONUS. The bass is in the same shape it was recieved in, if there are any nicks or scratches, I can't find them. I don't take pics any better than I play bass but here she is, the last two are pics from Pete. I can take more detailed ones upon request.

    Thanks for looking and I hope she finds a good home with someone who appreciates her as much as I have.

    Very nice! I love the vintage vibe to this one!

    Pete definitely makes a great bass!
     
  5. Pete is a true craftsman and perfectionist. If I didn't need to sell, this one would stay with me.

    Bump for a very cool Skjold!

    Kevin,
    Does the pick guard come off without signs of having been installed and/or routing areas exposed?
     
  17. Never had it off. It is on with double sided tape but Pete says it will come off and look normal...no routing underneath. Thanks for the bump.
     
  18. Bump
     
  19. Price drop...

    $2100 shipped in the CONUS
