A rare thru neck ACG Headless Harlot 5
A1 Immiculate, as new condition. 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.
Just fitted a brand new GLOCKENKLANG stacked 3 band Preamp, made huge improvement on the sound vs the previous John East Eq01. Super transparent
To commission it would cost in region of £3,000, although I’ve heard that Alan doesn’t now make thru necks.
Perfectly low action, blue fibre optic dots on the side of the neck (which I found a lot better for use on a dark stage than the brighter LEDs that are common) plays like a dream and has plenty of punch.
The fretboard is zero radius and the neck is asymmetrical (slightly thinner on the G side and thicker at the E). Unorthodox but I’m never consciously aware of it and find it very comfy: the neck plays itself.
