  1. Price drop at 1999 pounds. A few sound samples available for anyone really interested. I will also be unable to ship until next Monday. Cheers.
  2. Thank you! It's rather stunning indeed, and workmanship is trully second to none. For anyone interested, you can check the countless skjold megathreads on talkbass. Some facts I bought it recently from its original owner(a rather impulse buy to try something trully high end). The bass was built in 2013(as part of a payment), and was not played since. It has zero neck dive on the lap or hanging on a strap. It's that kind of bass that gets magically as low an action as you can imagine without buzzing anywhere on the neck and with minimal adjustments. It also seems extremely stable and the truss rod is easily the easiest and smoothest turning I've ever encountered - I really don't know how he's done it. It feels like a supercar in my hands, and that's the reason I'm thinking of letting it go, too much bass for me and my skill set, I prefer something a little bit more tamed sort of. It's sound is really powerful, either passive or active courtesy of the custom skjold pickups.As it was described to me, really versatile, but rather more rock than jazz. It also has the cleanest and punchiest dub/reggae sound I have heard. The clarity of the lower register is phenomenal. It feels extremely responsive in the hands and the harmonics are loud and clear everywhere, as they say they seem to jump of the bass, really rich harmonic content. Here's a couple of samples from people who actually know what to do with it Will entertain trades(up or down and only 4 strings), and polite offers.
  3. Skjoldslayer 4 in perfect condition 33" scale Select ash body myrtle top/headstock macassar ebony fb skjold pickups skjold/east preamp (bass,treble, passive tone, vol/blend) 3.7 kg practically new, playability is a dream, amazing action. Shipping included, comes with a used but in working condition hardcase.
  4. It's probably because of the 35 inch scale and because of the brand name. To be honest I was afraid of that too in the beginning. Later I came to understand that a well designed bass(like this one) that hangs and balances properly makes a minimal difference to me, in fact it is easier for me to play than most 34 inch scale basses I've had. Perhaps the response of the strings (due to the longer scale) has also something to do with this, the bass feels very responsive and fast.
  5. Mint(almost, see pictures) Ibanez Prestige from 2005. Whoever has played one, knows the high quality of these instruments. Everything works as it should, the bass plays wonderfully, and sounds really good(that's subjective of course). Equipped with custom US Bartolini radiused pickups, and a two band eq which is rather nice. There were versions also with a 3 band eq, this is not one of them. Weight is 4 kg, balances really nicely seated and standing. Shipped in its original case with the original straplocks and strap. The case is funtional but the forth lock is missing a part.Still it stays closed with the other three locks. Shipping is not included in the price but I will happily ship (as I have done numerous times before) in an appropriate and safe package at the buyers expense. It is around 50-60 euros for EU and UK and it takes normally up to a week. Priced a lot lower than I got it, because you know..I want to sell. (copied from my other ad:) )
  6. Yamaha trb ii 4 in very good cosmetic condition, made in Japan quality, at least on par with my Ibanez prestiges. I got two of them and have decided to let one go. 35'' scale, but very comfortable to play, both seated and standing. Weight 4 kg which I consider light. Everything functions as it should. Along I will give a d-tuner that was on from the previous owner which I took off and replaced with the original tuner. Shipping is not included in the price but I will happily ship (as I have done numerous times before) in an appropriate and safe package at the buyers expense. It is around 50-60 euros for EU and UK and it takes normally up to a week. Priced even lower than I got it, because you know..I want to sell. Not interested in trades unless its some kind of amp. I should add that the price is not indicative of what you get. The bass plays and sounds wonderful.
  7. Actually right now 1750 pounds is 2085 euros. And he said 1500 euros not pounds. That's an even higher difference. Nice bass by the way!
  8. Good communication, fast and secure shipping. I would gladly buy again from Jarek:)
