    Simplicity done to a very high standard.
    Here is a great way to try a nearly flawless, Birdsong (lite) at a reasonable price.
    PM me with an email address for more photos.

    This is a Shortbass made by Scott Beckwith of Birdsong Guitars.
    A less expensive version of the Birdsong Cortobass.
    The neck is a standard Birdsong with Scott’s signature.
    It has a single Lace Sensor pickup.
    Scale is 31”, 1.5” at nut, weight is about 7-7.5 pounds.
    It plays and sounds great.
    Like new condition.
    Comes with a hard shell case.
    Price includes shipping CONUS.

    These are basses that Scott builds, nearly as good as Birdsong basses when it comes to build quality and playability, but with less frills , and they aren’t custom built like Birdsong basses. They have a single pickup, not strung through the instrument.

    Here’s a description from Scott.

    ...And More — Wingfeather Workshop

    Here's a video demo from Scott:

    Scott was selling the Shortbass for $1250 without the hard case. This a great deal considering it’s about half the price of a Cortobass. According to his website, his shop is at full capacity building the other Birdsong models, so he is no longer building the Shortbass. Very few available. PM me your email address for more photos of this sexy beast. IMG_5306.JPG IMG_5307.JPG

    I got a similar Shortbass around 6 weeks ago and I am really pleased with it. Plays like butter, sounds like thunder, and it's super comfortable. There is a reason so many people are gaga over Scott's basses. Someone is going to be stoked.

    I bet you will. I have a similar Shortbass, with a Spanish Cedar body and a Maple neck. It’s the one I play all the time.

    Congrats to the seller and the buyer!
