    those inlays are fantastic if the bass goes to the "right" person!

    great looking axe. 33" basses are where its at.

    BEAUTIFUL bass! Did I count correctly; are there really 28 frets on this baby?

    What type of (full or partial) trades are you looking for?

    Ah, yes... I forgot to mention that it has 28 frets. I'm open to trades, probably something that's 34" with wider spacing.

    I have a Skjold bass that fits that description (34" scale, 18.5mm string spacing), and that I would consider trading. However, it is an "Artist" model, and Pete says that it would cost about $6K to build today (it was more than $4,500 back in 2007). If it would be of interest to you, we could take this to PMs.

    Before that, however, I have one question -- Do you have any sound clips of this bass?

    Does this have a flat fretboard?

    I just had my offer on a new house accepted, so I am motivated to move this bass.

    I had a couple people ask for soundclips, this is probably the best I have at the moment. Its recorded with my IPhone. Also, I hate youtube because they compress the sound.

    Motivated to sell. Just purchased a house. Make me a cash offer I can't refuse.
