    I have to comment on how nice the Skjold basses are. I played two of Tom Bowlus' and they compare in every way to his Sadowsky, MTD, Ritter, and Fodera.

    Hmm, suprised to see that for sale. The seller might do better contacting Pete about a buy back/consignment sale or exchange for new custom.

    I have not played one of these korina fretless models, but hear they are EXTREMELY nice. Perhaps the seller could not the the hang of fretless. This is a great deal as the Reserve is already met.

    it sounds awesome. I actually like the bloodwood fretless as much or better than the ebony ones hehe.

    I'm sure it sounds great. It's just a strange color combination with that body wood; I don't think it works for me. Nice bass though. I'm getting more and more interested in Skjolds.

    That's one hell of a steal for sure. First time seeing that pickup though, sure is one huge MM pup.

    The pickup is my C-4 pickup . It has two of my SC-1 pickups in the same housing so you can take advantage of the sweetspot and use the selector knob for front , series , parallel , and back pickup configurations . The size also helps as a finger rest and can be adjusted to work alot like a ramp .

    Who ever gets this will be a lucky so and so ;) It was a real player at the shop .

    Sweet looking bass for that kind of money. Wish it wasn't Christmas. I need a fretless for some work I'm doing early next year. Have to keep my eye on that one. Seems to good to be true at that price!!!
