I just made a major "cleaning" of the livingroom. In my bass corner, there were some ten basses hanging on the wall. And my very big 43.3" acoustic upright bass standing on its tripod stand. Kinda crowded. Now there is just one electric bass on the wall: my Sklar. All the others - including the old Voodoo Prima 6 - are packed in their cases in the music room in the basement. I find myself grabbing the Amethist Sklar all the time, so why not? The Sklar can make all the tones I need/use with my playing technique and style. No preamp tweaking or fiddling with pots, just fingering. And - it is easier to clean the house...

Uncluttered simplicity is good! I have three beautiful Dingwalls; a SJ5, SP4, and SJ/P4. If I were to 'simplify' to the point of owning/playing just one, it would be the (Glock-equipped) SJ/P4. I play it in active mode with no boost or cut. Perfection for me. :D

You never know...
I find myself using the Sklar all the time. Maybe replace the old Prima with a nice wenge neck Afterburner or Super J. Not on the agenda right now...

It used to belong to Alberto Rigoni, an Italian bass player who can be seen all over Internet.

Well that sure is a beauty. Please do let me know if you do decide to part with it. I'm on a quest for the perfect 6.

What are the wood specs?

Happy New Years

Well, VERY spalted/quilted maple top and back, dual core body with walnut and - I think - alder. Maple neck with accentuated stringers. Wooden knobs and pickup covers, matching the top and the wenge fingerboard.

Trades to consider: a nice SJ5, a nice wenge neck 5 or 6 string AB. If - and I say IF - I part from it.
