I have had a handful of Pete’s basses pass through over the years. They were all very nice basses , well made and well appointed. These experiences enabled me to develop my respect and appreciation for his craft and instruments.
That said, this bass , which serves to represent his current talents, has really opened my eyes and raised the bar a couple of notches.
- Mahogany body
- Flame Maple mid section
- Burl Maple top and headcap
- 33″ scale one piece quartersawn Maple neck
- Macassar fingerboard
- Skjold Design custom pickups in custom Ebony ramp
- Skjold/East custom 3 band preamp with active /passive option and passive tone control
- Reunion Blues gig bag
I love 33″ scale basses IF their low B string does indeed work. This low B works HARD ! What an easy player ! First position is within easy reach , the top frets are right there with complete and easy access. Well designed so we can exploit the entire range of the instrument.
When you are in the market for a new bass , I urge you to shop around , do some research, but please , before you make your purchase decision, be sure to play a Skjold.
