    Handmade Birdsong Corto 2 for sale $1650 shipped. This bass is only 2 weeks old. Not a scratch on it. Still has that new bass smell. A financial situation is forcing me to sell. Otherwise I would not be selling. Made of Spanish Cedar. Maple neck. 31 inch scale. Kent Armstrong pickups. Super lightweight. Just over 6 lbs. Plays and sounds great. It cost $1950 new with a long wait. Feel free to ask any questions.

    When did he start making pickups? :D

    Free bump for a nice bass, regardless of who made the pickups.

    Hey,

    How does the bridge pickup sound being that it is a little closer to the bridge than a Cortobass?

    Thanks

    How does the bass balance? Any neckdive issues?
