    This is a smokin' bass for sure and I am far from being a smokin' fretless player. But with the job that I am doing now I end up out of town almost 100% of the time.:( I am greatful for having a job but all of my basses are being ignored right now except for my Steinburger travel bass. I just figure that rather than keeping the AC5 I should move on and use the funds for catching up on some bills.

    I should note that I won't ship out of the lower 48.

    Just back from the NAMM show here in Anahiem. Spent some serious time at the F Bass booth, and I can honestly say that this bass for the asking price is the steal of a lifetime. These basses rule and what they say about them being the best fretless out there is true. I like so many others at the NAMM show got swept up in pure tone brothers and sisters. I in fact ordered an F-Bass but with lessor strings, an unfortunately more $$$$$$$. This bass is a steal people, believe that.

    Bump for a fantastic guy. I haven't played this particular one, but I trust Jerry all the way. He usually ends up with the most amazing basses, and I'm sure this is no exception.

    Very few can approach Alain Caron's level of virtuosity let alone attain it!!! That's what the woodshed is for!

    A Groove is a Terrible Thing to Waste! :cool:

    No doubt that's a hellava fretless but well beyond my price range.

    I'm interested in the Fbass but I'm working on selling an upright first. I'm located in Eugene - maybe I can come up to Ptown and play it a little? I know it's a good price already but if you drop it more I might have to jump on it before I have cash...(as in taking out a temp. loan) Rick

    Rick, I tried to send you a PM but you have that option turned off. If you could send me a message to my email we can discuss some things. Thank you!
