    saw this for sale and was wondering if it is the real deal. I am very ignorant about fbass. Can an AC6 come fully passive with 3 knobs only?
    I checked the website and found nothing but active with passive bypass and 6 knobs. here is a pic.
    fbass.

    If it's not an Fbass it's a pretty high quality copy. I don't know why someone would go through the trouble to recreate a relatively small operation to such detail, so I am going to guess that it's probably legit.
     
  3. Yes, this used to be standard and George will make a passive AC by reuqest I believe...
    Beautiful bass!

    Pretty sure it could be real. I played a passive 6 FBass at Gelb in Redwood City, CA a few years ago.

    You should post this question in the F bass forum and see what the guys in the know over there have to say.
