    Beautiful Birdsong Hy5!
    Below is the previous sale thread:
    SOLD - Birdsong Hy5 Scroll Bass

    Bass is in the same condition as when I bought it; only played a few hours at most.
    $2,250 shipped CONUS.
    Will consider all trades that are = or + cash to me.
    Any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!

    31" scale - do you have it strung E-C? A previous owner indicated that a low B would also work. Any knowledge of that?

    Looks like a through-body setup on that string to handle a longer length?

    Finally, any ideas about the radius of the fretboard? Would love to see a shot down the body and neck.

    Thanks,

    Jeff

    It’s strung with a low B, which goes through the body as you saw. I’ll get that pic ASAP.
    Thanks for looking!

    I owned this bass originally. It is really beautiful! Sounds great and plays great! Really huge sound and I found the low string cuts through a mix well. Someone will be very happy with this.

    No...actually I wanted it the last couple times if was for sale, and couldn't scrape up the money.
    I've loved it since you had it, I just don't NEED it...I'm trying to decide if WANT overrides need....
