    Bought this recently but just acquired a 6 string short scale so this one's got to go. Built like a tank. Tons of custom woodwork done on this one. All pics are taken today and really show off the deep colors of the wood.

    It's been here a few times so I'll simply bullet some of the main details previously posted about here (SOLD - Birdsong Hy5, Spanish Cedar, Macassar Ebony. Upgraded Delano soapbars):

    Birdsong "Eclipse" HY5
    • 31" scale
    • Spanish Cedar body
    • Macassar Ebony top & matching headstock
    • Maple neck
    • Rosewood fretboard
    • 2 Delano SBC5 HE/S-4 pickups
    • Matching two-tone pickup covers & knobs (cedar/ebony)
    • 8 - 8.5 lbs
    • Hardshell case included
    Bass is in overall phenomenal shape w/the exception of some dings/scuffs at the top of the upper bout (near the straplock) caused by some missing padding inside the case. Also, a small ding in the body carve (see photos for all these details). I'll will ensure the bass is wrapped/padded inside the case when shipped so no further dinging will occur due to movement inside.

    $1,740 insured/shipped to the lower CONUS. No international shipping. No trades. Thanks for looking!

    Gorgeous.
    Passive electronics?
    String spacing?
    Strung E-C or B-G?

    Yes, passive.
    16mm I believe.
    B-G currently; when I received it E-C.

    Bass is ON HOLD.
     
  5. Maybe a bit off topic, but may I ask what's this 6 string short scale that was good enough to make you sell this bass?
