    I initially had this for sale at $1450, then dropped the price to $1350, then said, 'What the hey, I'll keep it." But the only fretless that's getting any attention is my F Bass AC5, so this baby can now be had for $1250 - NO - $1150

    If you know Alan Cringean's work, then I don't have to convince you of it's build quality or innovative design. ACGs are top quality custom instruments that represent excellent value.

    This one is 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.

    Specs are:
    Spanish Cedar chambered body with Zebrano accent and figured Makore top. Satin finish.
    Wenge/Zebrano/Padouk neck.
    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 be seen at the ACG gallery here:
    http://www.acguitars.co.uk/acg_admin/wordpress/portfolio/0087-skelf-chambered-fretless-5-string/

    The price includes shipping from Canada.

    I have NO interest in a trade.

    I appreciate your interest.

    OK, I'm biased, but this is a really cool bass at a 'hot deal' price.

    Wow - a ton of great basses for sale at the moment here on TB. This one's a bit unique. Don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing. Just what it is, I guess.

    Not Pacman. It is amazing. That's what Alan C builds.

    Please note the ridiculous price chop to $1150. I see a lot of nice instruments languishing on TB these days. I want somebody to play this one.
