    Here are some of the 32" scale bass Cliff has made over the years. I'll be posting my pictures of my 30" scale bass when it arrives in summer of 2019. It was between a birdsong, Brad Muckelroy or Betts . There all about same price range. Just fell in love with the CB basses. Talked to Mr Costa from MG basses he told me he would build me a 30" scale bass but have not seen him make any yet. So Cliff got my vote and my business.

    Greg Bennett Corsair CR1 3.

    I bought this on a whim whilst waiting for my new Fender Jag to turn up, and when it did, I compared them and the Jag promptly found a new home. Better in every way and 1/6th the price, though the Corsair was used (but mint).

    And though they've been mentioned already, I love my SRC6s.
