Does anyone here have any knowledge, experience, etc., concerning the Corto Bass by BirdSongGuitars? Also, the same thing concerning the Landing short scale basses? I'm really determined to find a nice, quality short scale bass that I don't have to mortgage the farm for. I don't really care for any of the Gibson/Epiphone models, or the Fenders. Alembics, and others such as that are simply way to expensive for this old man to afford. Any help would be appreciated.
