Birdsong Guitars Introduces Corto2 Bass

In addition to their new Embrace model, Birdsong Guitars is celebrating their 8th anniversary with the introduction of the Corto2. The new bass is a take on their flagship short-scale Cortobass and features rear-routing with a pair of Kent Armstrong soapbar pickups.

Other changes include a more refined body with subtle recurving. Though many options are available, the bass comes standard with a Spanish Cedar body and maple neck. It can also be ordered fretless, lefty, or as a piccolo bass for no upcharge.

The Birdsong Guitars Corto2 is available now for $1,950 including a case and Continental U.S. shipping. For more info, visit the Birdsong Guitars website.
