“Scott’s Special” Shortbass
Will have rosewood fretboard & chrome hardware
$1250 w/bag & cont. USA shipping
The ergonomics & tone of Birdsong simmered down to its simplest, single pickup form. The neck of a Birdsong, the neck pickup of the Cortobass. Haven’t been able to get a batch of these going for this year, this may be the only one! One pickup, but certainly not “one trick” - very versatile. Hand signed headstock… simplicity done right. Rounds or flats?
Spanish cedar & poplar
“Rat Rod” hot rod themed build, painted and done up in tribute to my car - Sarge the Road Runner! Why is it half & half? Leftover board cutoffs get to sing too. And it’s fitting, as he was put together from two cars mainly… there are parts of 10 at last count. Will include a piece of Sarge.
And while we’re at it, here’s #19C-389 in poplar - same deal but going to be done up like my 1960 Pontiac, American Beauty!
1 pc. pecan
A natural wood lover’s special with striking grain! Local pecan, will look great all trimmed out in rosewood.
”Corto1” single pickup
Rosewood or maple board - your choice
Walnut butcher block!
Chrome, black or gold hardware - all look great on walnut!
Front or rear rout
$1950 to $2300 or so…
Going to do a Corto1 with a humbucker in the middle - just a great, all around, simple bass.
Hemlock body - super lightweight
Rosewood board, I think we’re going gold hardware and full rosewood trim!
Rat Rod alert! This one is a super lightweight Birdsong Cbass, all the quality, feel & tone of a Birdsong with an aged “Back yard hot rod” finish! Looking to find a home and that could be you if you’re up for something truly different - old parts bass vibe, brass bridge, raw maple neck so it’ll age quickly (by request I’ll rub a coat of wax on), will be getting an old looking original late ‘70s cream DiMarzio P-bass pickup out of an old SD Curlee and maybe a HOP UP car magazine decal I picked up at the last Lone Star Roundup. Can be ready literally in days.
