Skjold Designs Whaleback 5 String Electric Bass USED


The fruit of a close collaboration with bass player extraodinaire, Damian Erskine, the Whaleback features sleek curves with the elongated lower horn for better comfort and balance in the seated position. Approaching iconic status in it's looks, it still turns heads and satisfies the player's needs in one unique and original package.


The stage series is the most affordable line as a result of having trimmed away all the options that can add to the cost of the bass, while not affecting it's tone or playability. These basses are still completely handmade by Pete Skjold, the same way he builds all his basses. To keep the cost down on these, a very limited number of options are available and are limited to the electronics, pickups and color.

  • Premium two piece body of sawmp ash, alder, african mahogany and obeche
  • 1-pc premium quartersawn neck with estate oil/urethane finish
  • Fingerboard of quartersawn morado or maple

  • Two skjold custom dual coils
  • 3-band custom skjold preamp
