  1. Hi everyone! Due to it not getting as much playing time as it should, I'm looking to sell my ACG Recurve 5 string. It was bought on this very forum a few years ago in 2013, here is the original advert (with some super sexy pictures): Here are the specs (slightly tweaked from the original advert- forgive me for my sins!): Built in 2010, this is custom-made bass by Alan Cringean of ACG. It has a 5 piece body with Macassar Ebony top and a Wenge back and core along with Sycamore accent veneers. The neck is a 7 piece Flame Sycamore and Macassar Ebony with an acrylic impregnated Flame Sycamore fingerboard with Macassar Ebony binding. It is the third left handed basses that ACG has made and is of extremely high standard. It is number 0060 and is on his site here: http://www.acguitars.co.uk/project/0060-recurve-s-type-5/ It has an ACG EQ01 Filter based 18 volt pre amp (made in conjunction with John East), ACG FB humbuckers and John East low battery indicator with Series/Single/Parallel switches for each pickup. The filter based pre-amp is similar to what the famous Wal basses came with and makes it a very versatile bass. You can read more about it on the ACG site here: http://www.acguitars.co.uk/acg-eq01-filter-pre-amp/ The hardware is Hipshot A type Bridge and Ultralight tuners & Marvel straplocks. It also has a Neutrik locking input jack meaning that your cable won't come loose. 35" scale, 17mm string spacing with a 16" radius fingerboard. The neck has an asymmetrical profile (fatter on the B side) which makes it very east to play. The bass is fairly heavy, but comes with the Neotech padded strap I got it with (worth £35) that relieves most of the weight - it's never been an issue for me though and it's worth it for the look and sound! As shown in the pictures it is in near-new condition. I cannot find a mark or scratch on this bass other than some slight corrosion of the toggle switches. I will consider trades for a left-handed Fender Telecaster with money (either way depending on the guitar) to balance the difference. I am looking for local pickup in Manchester due to the value of the guitar and a lack of suitable boxes for it. Happy to answer any questions you might have!
  2. Completely forgot about these! I still have them and have significantly reduced the price of them as I was being a tad optimistic 🙄

    Those are both me. Will probably list them here at some point but trying out the free options first! Let me know if anyone has any questions about them

    Upper horn definitely looks a bit too pointy to me. Might just be bad quality control though? Don't know enough to say really. Got to say though, he doesn't sound like someone trying to pull a fast one. If he's claiming to be the only owner I think that buys a bit more suspension of disbelief than if he was someone claiming he got it secondhand at some point.

    I reported it again so hopefully it was probably taken down. Hopefully if it keeps on getting removed they'll stop trying! Seems to be some sort of bot that uses accounts that have had their passwords compromised

    This is now listed at £1000: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/152979226090?ul_noapp=true Seems like a fairly decent price to me

    Careful with this one... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Fender-Jazz-Bass-1964-Left-Handed-Sunburst-w-original-case-not-a-re-issue/382423988784?hash=item590a3efa30:g:bo4AAOSwIzBavVrM Apparently it's a 1964 Fender Jazz but it's on a 3 day auction with no reserve, the description links to some random other "ebaydesc.com" page that mentions Ohio... It's apparently based in Edinburgh but the eBay account is for someone from the USA. Free postage. Pictures are dated 2012. I think this person got their account hacked and this bass doesn't exist (or at least this person doesn't have it!)

  12. Hi Jebo,the [size=4]2 better condition tuners are £60 each and the other one in a lesser condition is £40 so that's:[/size] 2 x £60= £120 + £40 = £160 But I'm knocking off £20 if bought all together Cheers! EDIT: I see what you mean now, I've made it a bit clearer- thanks for pointing it out!
