FOR SALE ONLY - NO TRADES, US ONLY
For sale is my beautiful A-C LM5 (ash/maple/70's pickup position). I am the only owner. I purchased this new from Jimmy's NY shop in March of 2007 (serial # 00049). Since I switched to a P Bass a couple of years ago, this really gets no gig action, and I am winding down my 40+ year music career at this point!. So, lots of stuff heading out the door at this point.
It has seen many, many gigs, but is, as far as I can tell, in virtually 'as new' shape. Slap swirl on the guard, of course, and a very small (maybe 1/16th") finish imperfection right below the bass control knob that you have to look for to see. It was always there, and Jimmy pointed it out before I purchased. 9.5/10 IMO.
Neck is the most solid/stable I've ever experienced. I will include a very nice adjustment tool (rarely if ever needed!) that I found that fits the traditional slot mechanism perfectly. It has 'dual purpose' Dunlop straplocks installed, and I will include the 'strap part' of the mechanism.
The bass has relatively new DR HI Beams (45-125) installed. This is the only brand/gauge string that has ever been on this bass, and it is a great match.
Bass will ship in an original In-Case hybrid bag.... maybe the best bag ever produced regarding protection and pocket space IMO. It is in 9/10 shape (to be very conservative... looks new to me
34" scale, 19mm spacing, standard A-C preamp (VOL/VOL/TONE/TREBLE BOOST/BASS BOOST, passive bypass push/pull on bridge VOL), A-C single coil pickups. 9.4 pounds on my relatively accurate digital scale... feels lighter actually. $3,350
professionally boxed and shipped UPS ground (Continental US only). I don't do PAYPAL (I'm an old coot set in his ways
, so prefer check or money order).
