    I've had my Birdsong Cortobass for over 6 months now and have played it and practiced on it constantly. I absolutely love it and spent more time than I had anticipated writing a detailed review of it with pics and sound clips.

    If you are interested, you can read the review here. I put a brief one here at TB in the Gear Reviews area also with a pointer back to the longer one.

    Hey Millard,

    Great Review! Complete with sound clips. I stumbled upon these basses when I was looking to have a custom made but was a bit skeptical. I just revisited their website and it is a lot different than the last time I was there.

    Nice to hear you have an instrument that fits you perfectly! There is no happiness like that happiness. :smug:

    Thanks for the kind words. It was a labor of love, of sorts.

    I completely get the big, throbbing bass thing, but damn if this thing isn't playable as all get out. Almost as easy to play as a guitar.

    I've ordered a Corto GT as my "backup". :) Had to sell some stuff (and still have to sell some stuff) to cover that.

    Nice looking basses. Great review, loved the clips, very comprehensive and well done. I don't like it when somebody's "listen to this instrument" clips turn out to be bits of a poorly recorded, terribly mixed song with 4 other instruments you don't want to hear.

    Great job!
