    Very excited as my new Skjold re-arrives tomorrow! :hyper:

    I want to tell everyone out there about how awesome Pete Skjold is! Seriously!!!

    I received my pearl white Skjoldslayer a few weeks ago, and even though I was blown away with the bass, the tone was not exactly what I was after, so I spoke with Pete about it and we decided to change the pickups and preamp to similar ones that were in my Redwood Skjoldslayer (both by Aguilar).

    Pete is not only an exceptional luthier in a class way above most others, but he is also extremely focused on what the player wants and needs, more so than most other builders out there by a long-shot!

    I will tell you straight up Pete has gone above and beyond and I am very thankful for that!


    If you are in the market for a new bass, I highly recommend that you at least talk to Pete Skjold before making your final decision. I am very confident that after you talk to Pete your decision will become a no-brainer! Seriously!!!

    What’s the string spacing on that? Looks very nice.

    I’m totally jealous of the Skjold ramp system- wish my bass had it :D

    I have it set to 17mm, as i prefer narrower.
    I believe it's a adjustable hipshot 17-19mm, really easy to adjust too.
    Fingers still flubbing a bit on the A-D-G string crossings but getting used to the 6stringer

    I mean... if you buy a Skjold your bass would have the ramp system.

    What if I buy a Skjold that doesn’t have a ramp system, huh smart guy?? :D

    I remember being excited when I saw you put up your 33” 6 in the classifieds, but you took it down immediately. Just bought a new amp so I’m a ways away from new bass money.
