    Birdsong Featherbass prototype. 5.5 lbs. Thin body made of mahogany. It great condition. Been played a lot. Has nicks and dings and honest players wear but plays and sounds great. Hard case included. The input jack was moved to where the tone knot was because the bullet jacks kept failing but I have the tone knob if you want to reinstall it. Feel free to ask questions if I forgot anything.

  2. A few questions 'cause I'm not afraid to ask dumb questions!
    1) No neck dive, right? That's crazy light, even for a Birdsong. (Don't tell Scott I asked).
    2) Price includes shipping?
    3) Why are you selling it?

    Thanks for your time.

    Yes balances great. Price includes shipping. Haven’t been playing it much for the past year. Thinking of having another bass built.

    Still available
     
  6. If a buyer wanted to reinstall the tone pot, an electrosocket and switchcraft jack would remedy.

    It’s a 31inch scale and some kind of lace pickup.

    Those lace pickups sound really good on those basses, super articulate and powerful plus growly all at once.

    Not really looking for trades. Going to have another bass built. I might trade for one of my Muckelroy basses that I sold off.
