    Beautiful Cortobass from Scott's original shop '07.
    31" scale
    Mahogany body and Truss cover
    Maple neck
    Ebony nut and knobs
    Lace pickups
    Volume + Volume + Varitone
    Zero Fret--Fretted w/ Rosewood Board
    Chrome Hipshot hardware w/ Detuner E
    Black control cover
    Oil/poly rub
    Hand burned Headstock Logo
    OHSC and certificate

    Weight- 7# according to Scott's spec sheet. That feels right but I don't even own a scale to check:)

    Currently has nickel flats on her, if you've ever had the pleasure to play or own one, you know how spectacular they play and sing, so small with such huge, FAT tone.

    Some minor wear on body back and above E string on top.
    Minimal Fret wear. Neck is true in all the glory of any birdsong neck.

    On the fence about letting this one go. I play mostly fretless low B extended scales now but still absolutely love this little beastly wonder. Every time I pick her up I'm in awe of the tone that comes screaming out: brilliant design and craftsmanship.

    $1550

    Might consider trades, might decide I can't part with her. Think all Birdsong owners can relate to the later and have regrets about letting one fly off to a new home.
    Pics to come...

    Thanks

    Just wondering if you've been successful in your quest to sell?
