CONTINUUM SERIES

The continuum series represents the vintage inspiration of basses that laid the foundation of modern bass guitar. These are familiar and sometimes iconic shapes and specifications which Skjold Design has embraced only to extract the very essence of the Skjold ideal from them. These are not reproductions but extensions, continuations. If you want everything Skjold Design has to offer in a modern bass but love the classic lines of yesteryear then look no further.

 

Denoncourt series

 

The Dononcourt Series is a tribute of love for my french heritage on my mother's side as well as the designs of French luthier Jean-Phillipe Ferreira "JP" who built and designed instruments in France until 2005 . Through mutual admiration and friendship a deal was struck to allow me to bring his designs back to life as Skjold basses using his designs. Although I have purposely tried to stay true to the original design's intent I have also taken liberties to ensure these are every bit a Skjold Bass as anything else I offer, from playability to trueness of tone.
