    Highly upgraded 2012 birdsong Hy5 professional shortscale (31") 5 string bass (BEADG). Around 8 lbs. Spanish cedar back and macassar ebony top. Custom made knobs, pickup covers and truss rod cover out of cedar and ebony as well. Kent Armstrong soapbar pickups. Passive wiring, but lots of output, as you probably know if you are familliar with Birdsong. Scott nick named this the "eclipse" bass after it's custom details. It's the nicest high 5 I've ever seen! Hard Shell case & papers from Scott. $2650 shipped. Cash preferred as I am only selling because I need the money. Trades considered as long as I get cash as well and the trade is something that can easliy be resold here.

    Unfortunately I decided to go back to grad school while this bass was being made. I just received it around a month ago and now must sell for living expenses in the fall. :atoz: I will post here for a few weeks and If no luck I will send it back to Birdsong to sell for me. It will cost less here so I thought I'd give TBer's first chance at buying it.

    I guess since he was banned from cycling Lance has turned to making pickups, very cool; and I guess it makes since considering how close he actually lives to Birdsong.
