Wing Bass

The Wing Bass is a half-scale electric bass guitar (patent pending) derived from a simple concept… place a capo at the 12th fret of a standard bass and eliminate the neck behind the capo. What this does is provide you an instrument that allows you a chance to take your bass with you and get your playing in pretty much anywhere. Due to the reduced size, you can carry the Wing Bass in a backpack, in an overhead carry-on, or you could strap it on and carry it around the house.

The Wing Bass is great for practice and travel, yet it performs well live too! Tuned an octave higher than a full-sized bass, tone is really clear and great for soloing. The Wing Bass plays VERY well with almost any effect imaginable.
