    Howdy TB. Sad to see this go, but gotta pay for some incoming stuff. Consequently, I'm not interested in any trades. I got it here in late 2014 and it's been well cared for ever since.

    SOLD - Birdsong cBass

    This bass sounds clear and punchy like a P should and is in excellent overall condition (some light swirling on the body seen from certain angles, and a discoloration on the back shown in pics, which was there when I got it). Alder body, maple neck and, yes, a maple fretboard (rare for Scott). About 6.4 pounds. Has side dot fret-markers.

    After I got this here a few years ago, I replaced the pickups with Lauzon strat/P pups for greater output, clarity and P goodness, strung it with LaBella Deep Talkin' Flats and had it all professionally done and set up.

    $1375 shipped CONUS. Comes with usual Birdsong hard case in very good condition.

    Thanks for looking, DM

    31" scale (nut to saddle).

    If you haven't had the experience, I've never noticed any significant difference among 30", 30.5", 30.75", and 31". I regularly switch basses within that range, the main differences in playing feel (other than neck shape) being where the neck/body join and the bridge is located, not the scale length per se.

    Now, 32" is a different story IME.
