The 5-String Wing Bass is an instrument designed to travel, practice and perform wherever you want. The concept is simple… place a capo at the twelfth fret of your standard bass and chop off the neck behind it, and voila! You have a travel bass that feels like a real bass above the twelfth fret. The Wing Bass uses standard strings and standard string spacing so your technique building exercise can be retained when you return to your main bass.

It’s light weight and very 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.

Explore various “feels” by using different gauge strings. All Wing Basses ship with standard gauge strings, depending on tuning preference, but since we use a zero fret, you can install just about any gauge you wish.
