    Skjold Custom 5 $1750 shipped/Trade

    * Highly figured Lacewood top
    * Ash body
    * 5 piece 35' scale Maple/Purpleheart neck
    * 24 fret Purpleheart fretboard
    * EMG CS p-ups and EMG 3-band pre w/ sweepable mids
    * Very light weight
    * Very near mint condition

    I actually would prefer a trade, preferably for a "J" type bass, but I'd consider all types of trades, especially Roscoes. I will also add cash for the right bass trade.

    Friendly push back to the top...still taking trade offers as well, and price could be negotiable for cash offers.

    This is a great bass for anyone curious about an outside opinion. I have played this bass, and heard it played by several better than me. It sounds good, it looks good (allthough not a fan of the purpleheart matched with the lacewood color wise - Im just picky). It plays great as well, comfortable neck profile.
