Price Drop - ACG Lined Fretless Skelf 5
Price Drop to $1350
I am narrowing my fretless inventory to a single bass, an F Bass AC5. This is the last, and best, of the fretless instruments I'm parting with in that process. I'm so impressed by Alan Cringean's work that I've ordered a custom fretted bass from him. His reputation as a top-end builder is, in my opinion, well deserved.
This a piezo-only bass with an extremely broad range of tonalities owing to the ACG/East pre-amp. I have used it primarily for its DB/acoustic mimicry, but it can be dialed in to meet the demands of just about any genre (well.....OK.....probably not metal). Very prominent legato mwah, but can also give a burby/plucky staccato depending on how you adjust the pre and where you play.
Spanish Cedar chambered body with Zebrano accent and figured Makore top. Satin finish.
Ebony board with Maple fretlines. Zero radius.
34" scale. 1.75" at nut. 18mm string spacing at bridge.
Weight ~ 8.5 lbs.
Hipshot bridge and tuners.
Graphtech Ghost Piezos.
ACG EQ02 3K filter pre-amp.
Black La Bella Tape Wound strings.
Small surface blemish and scratch near the aft end - not visible unless you go looking for them. Shown in pictures.
It can also be seen at the ACG gallery here:
$1350 shipped to CONUS/Canada.
I have NO interest in a trade.
Thanks for taking the time to look.
