    I can't really imagine a better modern bass tone than what this puts out. The Dingwall/Skjold SC-1 pickups are just amazing sounding. Massive and thick with a very detailed high end. Probably the best sounding slap bass that I've ever had. but it also does meaty thick fingerstyle and has a great burpy bridge tone, but with more girth than a jazz. Super super nice all around. I'm just not gigging it right now, so I'm looking for something a little different to add to the stable.

    • Skjold Lions Pride
    • Alder body
    • Quilted maple top (see shop video below!)
    • maple fingerboard
    • 34" scale
    • Skjold/Dingwall SC-1 pickups
    • East SP2 preamp (3 band, each band is frequency adjustable via thumbwheels in cavity - VERY cool)
    • excellent condition, zero issues
    • comes with HSC
    • Hipshot ultralight and A bridge
    • String spacing is 18mm.
    • Nut width is 1 7/8 inches
    • 8.8 lbs with the brass knobs (lightweight rubberized Skjold branded knobs included)
    • frets are in great shape, and bass plays super clean with low action, ala skjold!

    Trades: I'm picky and probably looking for only a few things..
    Will sell outright for $2750 shipped in the CONUS

    One of the all time most gorgeous quilt tops I've ever seen! Skjolds are the very top shelf!
