    Other:
    This beautiful bass is in excellent condition. It has been played at church and otherwise has remained at home. I am hesitant to sell it and can't rule out changing my mind, however I am working on freeing up cash and probably need to go ahead with selling it. As shown in one of the pictures, there is an indentation in the top wood behind the bridge; this was from the build process and present when purchased new.

    A couple professional pictures of this bass can also be found on the Skjold website at the links below within the page sections listed.

    :) The bass weighs about 10.5 pounds or a hair over. It comes with a 4 inch leather Skjold strap.

    How does this bass sound acoustically, when not plugged in? Also, is there and neck dive? Thanks!

    Hello, I somehow missed the responses on Tuesday and just saw them; I apologize for the delay! I am not interested in trading but thank you for the offer. Greykatz, I will get back to you on your questions later today. Thanks.

    Hello, acoustically to me the bass is very resonant and fairly loud for an electric bass, with a clear tone that has hints of piano and growl. The bass is heavier towards the neck without a strap but is fine with a strap. From the outside edge of the B string to the outside edge of the C string the width at the zero fret is about 43mm to 44mm or 1 11/16" and the width at the 26th fret is about 75mm or 2 15/16". Regards.
