Wing Bass Classic


The Wing Bass Classic is the one that started it all. Born from an idea that you don’t really require the first 11 frets of a bass in order to practice or play when you travel. The only differences between this instrument and a full sized bass are the tuning (the Wing is tuned one octave higher – the equivalent of playing the twelfth fret and above), and portability. The Wing Bass uses standard strings and gauges and standard string spacing so your technique building exercises can be retained when you return to your main bass.

It’s extremely light and portable so whether your just hanging around the house, traveling on business, camping, whatever, you can always have an instrument to keep your chops up with.

We also offer a ton of standard and custom options. If you don’t see what you want here, please contact us to talk about your ideal Wing Bass.

To purchase a Wing Bass Classic, please build your own configuration, and then add to your cart.

Current lead time is approximately 32-34 weeks and is SUBJECT TO CHANGE based on specifications and options.

Custom orders are non-cancellable, non-returnable.
