    I had this up earlier this week, but pulled the ad. Putting it back up for sale for $4,800 U.S. shipped in the U.S. or Canada with payment sent via Paypal. International will be considered, but you will pay shipping and all duties as required. Trades will be considered on an individual basis where cash maybe added. Trade value is much higher than the sale value due to it's actual sale price. Preference is for a straight sale, however, I will listen. Looking for basses by Alleva Copollo, Fodera, Ken Lawrence, or maybe Ken Smith, Sadowsky, or Spector. Send me a PM with your trade details.

    Get a great deal on an incredible instrument now. List price is around $8,000 U.S. (see Bass Central's website) and this would not include the Myrtle body. Standard AC5's have a Spruce Top with flamed maple body. I currently own another AC5 that has a metal 'A' style bridge. I'm a little more keen on this one because of the wooden bridge. Fantastic orchestral like sound. You will not be disappointed.

    Specs (Modified from the F-Bass Website:

    Nut Width : 45mm (1 3/4")
    Width at Last Fret 80mm (3 1/8")
    Fingerboard Radius 10" - 16"
    Scale Length 34.5"
    Number of Frets 28
    String Spacing at Bridge 19mm (3/4")
    Neck Wood 3 piece quarter-sawn maple
    Fingerboard Wood Gabon Ebony (Black)
    Body Wood Myrtle/Redwood Top
    Tuners Black Gotoh tuners with 20:1 ratio
    Bridge Handmade Gabon Ebony
    Knobs Handmade African Blackwood
    Pickups RMC piezo pickups in the saddle & an F Bass stacked, single coil/hum-cancelling, magnetic pickup in the bridge position

    I'm interested. What year? Serial#? Are you the original owner? Does it come with a case? Thanks.
