    I was cruising the net as I am interested in buying a new bass and I came across the Lemur Flyaway Bass that comes apart and fits into a box for transport. Has anyone had any experience with this bass? I am in Australia and its portability is attractive but only if it sounds and plays well. I'd be grateful for any information.

    Thanks, I should have tried a search first!
  3. In addition to the Lemur, other options include a removable neck model from Upton Bass, the Chadwick Folding Bass, the Cossi 99in as well as luthiers who can convert a bass for you.

    For transport, I saw a cool carbon-fibre case that has a separate case for the neck that can attach to the main case, but it's quite expensive. David Gage also has one that is very similar, which Upton also sells.

  4. I bought the Liberty Bell Flyaway Bass from Lemur. Hybrid Carved top with a flatback.
    I feels really good. They did a great job on the fingerboard and bridge.
    The G,D,A strings are nice. But the E string, volume and low end is bad.

    Took it to a luthier 3x, they think that the bass bar has to be re shaped.
    I dont want to invest any more money into this bass.
    Had higher expectations. Just Disappointed. I should have play it first.

    Called Lemur and they were very helpful and wanted to correct the problem.
    Either fix or consignment.
    Wouldn't mind keeping it if the issue can be corrected.
