    Up for sale is my Birdsong Cortobass. It's a great little bass but, as I've discovered that short scale isn't really for me, it's time for it to move on to a new home.

    It has a one piece maple body with a maple neck and a rosewood fingerboard. Standard Lace pickups and V/V/T wiring. I don't have an exact measurement of the weight, but I would be surprised if it weighed much more than 7lbs. Extremely light. It is currently strung with D'Addario Chromes which sound fantastic on this bass. It is in great condition with the only flaws being a few small dings around the bottom edge of the body.

    Looking for $1400 + shipping. Will ship in a nice TKL hard case.

    (Photos are from the previous owner as I currently do not own a camera :oops:. If you would like additional photos, I would be more than happy to borrow a camera and take some.)

    Thanks for looking, and feel free to ask any questions!

    Bump from a fellow Birdsong owner. The best short scale bass bar none, handmade right here in Texas. Yee-haa!

    If you want a fretless, you could always just send the bass back to Birdsong. Scott will put a fretless neck on, give the bass a good setup, and send it back to you. And it'll still be cheaper than buying a new Birdsong fretless.

    Bump. Would consider a trade for a Rob Allen MB-2 (plus cash on my end as necessary).
