     A really finely constructed bass from Pete's Custom Series line that exemplifies the high level of craftsmanship of all the Skjold Design basses. This particular bass has a really warm vintage sound with the EMG DC-CS pickups. Playability is excellent with all areas of the neck easily accessible. Pete offers up a good array of tones with the EMG pre-amp and three band EQ. The bass is on a level of construction with any of the custom shops out there and at the same time, very reasonable in price. Take a close look at this instrument if you are in the market for a terrific five string fretless bass.

This instrument is documented in the BunnyBass Musical Instrument Archive.
