  1. The ACG 26.5inch basses are awesome, I have these two from Alan and I absolutely love them. Big sound from such little basses too! I'm sure your sixer will be a cracking bass!

  4. The red silk makes them look similar to the La Bella I have on my ACG but mine are smooth and not half rounds. What colour are D'Addario half round silks?
  5. I am a huge fan of short scale basses. I have 30" and medium scale basses but now I am fan of 26.5" basses from ACG Rob Allen Mouse ACG headless 30" Spector Shorty and now ACG Micro Krell (26.5")
  6. Yes, I spec’d that one for Alan to build me. The nylon wounds strings are amazing and it feels awesome. Love Finns.
  7. Nope the Krell is a guitar shape that’s evolved into a bass. So it’s sits well for seated and it’s balanced for standing playing.
  8. 115 - 50 strings, the tension feels right and it’s the easiest bass I’ve played (and I’ve just sold a Rob Allen Mouse)
  9. Actually when I'm done, all I will have are two 32" basses that Alan's made me and this new one. I'm beginning to think that 32" is the new 34" (particularly Alan's basses) and this 26.5" is my new 30".
  10. This one could have gone to NAMM, it’s so well made.
  11. I’m loving it. And the sound is much bigger than you’d expect.
  12. I have been off-loading some basses recently as I plan to move house but as part of this consolidation plan, I have a acquired a new gem from ACG. It's a new scale length that Alan's been working on and I think it just suits me perfectly and the sound is amazing from such a short scale - 26.5". Is this new start of a new wave of short scale basses?
  13. I use the standard strings from Marleaux: Stainless steel Gauges:: 30 - 40 - 60 - 80 but I have heard of players using labella and DR Neon strings.
  14. Just remember this is a fretted bass. From Rob Allen's site: When comparing the fretted and fretless versions, the main difference is the shape of the note. Both will have the same full tone; the fretted bass will have a slightly quicker attack and the fretless will have a slower attack with a little bit of swell after the initial sound. The difference will be most apparent when playing slower tempos. The fretted basses are also very good for players that make use of playing chords and double stops, or sing complex vocal parts while playing bass. If you want a warm, yet clear sound with the precision of frets, I suggest a fretted model.
  15. Cheers, it is a great bass. Sorry, but it has to be a straight sale. Relocating is forcing the sale.
