    Birdsong makes a bass like no other, and this Texas Bling bass is a bass like no other Birdsong. Amazing feel and tone from a short scaled bass. There is no better short scale bass anywhere than Birdsong. The balance is perfect, the playability is incredible and it delivers the sound of a larger scaled instrument. The best of all worlds. This is the bass you will cherish for a lifetime and take great pride in knowing that it is a one of a kind instrument. A true piece of Texas art that will last for generations.

    It does give you the sense you're handling a work of art that's for sure!

    Where are you located? I am in South Austin and would love to check out your bass.
    Are you interested in any trades?

    I am about half an hour east of Dallas. I am much more interested in cash but not ruling anything out. What do you have to trade?

    Hi Case. Sorry, man. Not looking for any Gibsons right now. But I appreciate the offer. If I can answer any questions for you about the Birdsong please just let me know. Thanks!

    I figured, but had to ask, as I'm all about short scales, have five of them, and lived in Wimberley for 7 yrs.
    Good luck!
