    I am re-listing this Skjold Custom 5 for a new lower asking price of $2600.00

    Here's some of the details:

    Skjold Custom 5 with original '92 Skjold body style
    Sapele Mahogany body - the body wood on this bass is what Pete has recently used as a TOP wood on some of his latest basses! It is that good looking.
    Quilted Maple top with contrast layer - hand picked by me and Pete in his shop when we both lived in Texas.
    35" scale, 24 fret, 18mm spacing (adjustable)
    Highly figured Macassar ebony fretboard - beautiful wave pattern in the grain
    Matching Quilted Maple, laser engraved (Skjold) pick-up housings
    Skjold/East pre-amp system (9v): Volume, four position rotary pickup selector, tone (active/passive push-pull), stacked treble (super bright push-pull) bass (boost only), stacked mid frequency sweep/boost cut. Needless to say, this preamp can dial in ANY tone you'd like.
    Five piece Maple/Purpleheart neck with satin finish and Pete's compound radius.
    Custom Hipshot hardware (ultralight tuners and custom Skjold design bridge)
    Skjold metal control knobs (not the wooden knobs pictured)

    New, this bass would currently run over $4000 and would take about 12-14 months to build.

    I have more photos available.
    The bass is in perfect condition and has just been set up with new R. Cocco strings.
    I will also throw in a free additional set of R. Cocco strings with the sale.
    PM me with any questions.
    Thanks

    Beautiful! Pete's basses are amazing. I only have a fretless right now, but am looking forward to getting back in the fretted club... just can't do it right now. :bawl:
