|I, unfortunately, have to put up for sale my new Custom 7 string.
This bass is brand new from Pete's most recent batch of basses. Pete and I picked out the woods together and I watched this bass being built in his shop in Texas over the last year before he and I both moved.
I've only had it out of its case a couple of times. It doesn't get any more "new" than this.
The tone and range of this bass are like nothing else I've ever played.
The reasons that I'm selling are not important. Here's what is -
A Skjold 7 string now starts at over $4000. With the custom woods, electronics and extras that this bass has, Pete tells me that this bass would be about $5300 with about year wait time for a build.
I'm listing this bass for sale (no trades) at a NEW REDUCED PRICE of $3600 which includes shipping to the continental United States. I will discuss PayPal with interested buyers.
Here are the specs:
92 off-set body
One piece, highly figured lightweight Ash body
Incredibly figured Flamed Redwood
Skjold pick-ups with matching wood covers
quartersawn straight grain Maple fingerboard
13 piece graphite reinforced neck with satin finish and twin adjustable truss rods
Audere 4 band (bass, low mid, high mid, treble) pre-amp, with 4 position Z mode
Black Hipshot hardware
Includes new Skjold heavily padded gig bag.
You can see a variety of pics of this bass during its construction in the main basses threads. I'd be happy to answer any questions that you may have and/or forward more pics.
