    SOLD! FBass Alain Caron AC5 string fretless.

    Up for sale or trade is my FBass AC5 fretless. This bass is nearly new, made in 2011 and signed by George F. in Jan 2012. It's in pristine condition without a blemish. Fingerboard shows no wear. I'm the second owner of the bass, purchased from Bass San Diego in Oct 2012, hasn't left my house since. The "king of the fretless" bass-this instrument has a warm and complex modern fretless tone and incredible versatility via its piezo and magnetic pickups. The mag pickup is also configured for hum-cancelling or single coil operation. Selling because I've recently picked up a Rob Allen Deep 5 here on TB and 3 fretless basses are one too many. This is a chance to own a nearly new AC5 at a used price!

    Specs:
    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")
    Weight: approximately 9 lbs.
    Neck Wood: 3 piece quarter-sawn maple
    Fingerboard Wood: Gabon Ebony (Black)
    Body Wood: Figured Maple/Spruce 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

    TRADES (new in bold):
    The ONLY trades I'm considering are a Sadowsky Vintage NYC JJ or P/J, Will Lee NYC, Metro JJ or P/J, Alleva Coppolo Jazz, MTD 535-24, F Bass BN5, Lakland 55-94 or 44-94, and Fodera, with cash depending on trade. Now open to rosewood or maple fingerboards-mostly interested in a 5 string but will consider 4 and 6 string basses-trades should be approximately 9 to 9.5 lbs.

    A new AC5 goes for $5600, [DEL]asking $4500[/DEL] PRICED REDUCED to $4100 shipped CONUS insured in FBass soft case. PayPal preferred. Send PM with any questions or trade offers. Thanks for looking!

    Wish one of my trades would work for you. Best I can do is keep giving you free bumps.

    Thanks, Bob-and the same goes for you!

    Bass is still available and really needs a permanent home. I played it a bit this weekend at home-the feel and tone are outstanding, and at just 9 lbs, it is very hard to part with-my loss will be your gain. Please PM me with any questions or trade offers.
