Wing Instruments Introduces Two New Models

Wing Bass 30

Wing Instruments expanded their product lineup at the NAMM show this year with the Wing Bass NT and Wing Bass 30. The company describes the new models as representing an evolution in their philosophy that “life is short scale.”

Similar to the original Wing Bass, the NT measures up at just 21 inches and plays like the top range of a bass guitar. It is set apart with a cutaway body wing design and neck through construction. It’s available in four, five, six, and even seven-string versions and three options of body woods: Douglas fir, mahogany, or black limba. The fingerboard can be fretted or fretless in maple or Morado. Other options include ramps, piezo bridge saddles, or a built-in EHX Nano POG.

The Wing Bass 30 is a bit of a departure from the rest of the line, featuring a 30-inch scale and more traditional body shape. “With weights as low as 5 pounds this instruments is both easy on the shoulder and also highly more portable than a standard scale bass, without sacrificing tone and playability,” Wing Instruments writes.

Both the Wing Bass NT and Wing Bass 30 are available for order direct from Wing Instruments. Prices start at $899 for the NT and $1,499 for the Wing Bass 30.
