Okay so I’m not 100% sure about this but putting this up this quick ad tentatively.
A rare thru neck ACG.
Headless Harlot 5
A1 Immiculate, as new condition. Not a single ding or scratch! This has been gigged by me twice and obmm once according to him when I collected it so a total of three nights played out. So a new ACG for half the price.
We’re talking exotic wood for days here: sycamore, Asian ebony, Wenge, flamed maple and swamp ash.
It has grub screws for use with normal strings if that’s what you want.
The unusual low pass filter amp per pickup that is spec’d in a lot of Alan’s custom builds. Really cool feature is the resonance control. And of course the high boost circuit that runs parallel to the low pass filter adding some tops back in. That along with the switchable pickup config makes it very versatile tonally.
I bought on here from the original owner obbm who commissioned the bass for I believe in the region of £3,000.
Perfectly low action, fibre optic dots (which I found a lot better for use on a dark stage than the much brighter LEDs that are common) plays like a dream and has a very hi-if sound with plenty of punch.
Using obbm’s original photos for now but will update with fresh ones unless I withdraw.
I strongly believe that it’s underpriced at £1500 but in BC spirit it’s what I paid for it.
It has double ball status that have lost one of their ‘zing’ but still have some there which is great for some but if you want that fresh string zing then you’ll want to grab some new ones. Haven’t used the grub screws before but got instructions on from Alan (the luthier) on how to use them to fit normal single ball strings.
