This is my MPU headless 5 string, built by Finnish maestro and good guy Marko Ursin. It's a light, superbly-crafted fiver with carbon neck, that absolutely thunders when cranked up, though it's more than capable of the subtle stuff too. I've had it since 2104 and love it though it didn't get played as much as it deserved to. Here's the spec; [size=4][color=black][font=Arial, sans-serif]-Swamp ash/poplar burl body[/font][/color][/size] [size=4][color=black][font=Arial, sans-serif]-Custom-made carbon fiber neck with dual action truss rod, 34" scale, 24 frets, Richlite phenolic fingerboard[/font][/color][/size] [size=4][color=black][font=Arial, sans-serif]-Custom-made Wal-style10-coil pickup[/font][/color][/size] [size=4][color=black][font=Arial, sans-serif]-ACG EQ2 filter preamp[/font][/color][/size] [size=4][color=black][font=Arial, sans-serif]-ETS tuner and bridge[/font][/color][/size] [size=4][color=black][font=Arial, sans-serif]-Ghost piezo bridge[/font][/color][/size] [color=black][font=Arial, sans-serif]T[/font][/color][color=black][font=Arial, sans-serif]he bass uses a clamp-style nut rather than double ball strings. Can't remember what strings are on at the moment, though it plays exceptionally well with SITs if I remember correctly.[/font][/color] It'll be shipped in a coffin case and well-protected, though collection in person is possible too. £750 ono.
  4. Still available. Make me a (sensible) offer.
  5. Must be time for another bump. Reduced to £1000 now.
  6. Thanks chaps. Time for a bump. Anyone? I need the cash, my therapy won't pay for itself, y'know. :-)
  7. Hi All, As part of the ongoing de-GAS here is my Tanglewater jazz bass. It's a great all-rounder, that'll suit just about any musical genre you can think of. Makes a fantastic noise, a huge range of tones, better than some Fenders, and possibly better built than some too. Hard to see in the pictures but the colour is a translucent black that shows up the wood grain through it. In great condition, with only the tiniest dink on the headstock. It'll be in a gig bag and I'm happy to post at cost, though I'm happy for a buyer to collect also.

  8. Hello All, Up for sale is my ACG Recurve fretless 4 string. I bought this just over a year ago. Those of you who've played ACG basses before will know how good they are, and this is no exception. Unfortunately this has been out of it's case probably three times since I've owned it, and that is pretty criminal. Sadly, I just don't play any more, certainly not enough to justify keeping so many instruments. It's a lovely bass but the money from it can more usefully be allocated elsewhere. There's not a mark on it, and it'll be in a nice Hiscock case. Cost me originally I think £1600 so I reckon £1200 is a fair price for it now. Feel free to ask me any questions. The full spec is here; [url="http://www.acguitars.co.uk/acg_admin/wordpress/portfolio/0151-recurve-fretless-4/"]http://www.acguitars...rve-fretless-4/[/url] [attachment=208779:IMG_20160106_130654.jpg][attachment=208780:IMG_20160106_130704.jpg][attachment=208781:IMG_20160106_130714.jpg][attachment=208782:IMG_20160106_130724.jpg] [attachment=208783:IMG_20160106_130740.jpg]
  9. Yep, they're due to play the Womad festival at the end of July so I'm looking forward to catching them there.
  10. I'd never come across them before until I bought an ACG fretless bass with them. I'm talking about SIT Silencers. Mine are 45-105 but feel much smaller. Very smooth feel on the fingers, and make a lovely organic sound that seems to almost come swelling out of the fingerboard. Not cheap, and not the easiest to find either (get them from Bass Direct, or from Alan at ACG} but worth it IMHO. I've started putting them on my other basses.
  11. Oo! Heatshrink tubing. Good call, I've got some in my garage. Ta!
  12. It's an appealing idea.... ...but on second thoughts...
  13. The drummer's far too good to slice up! Like the cuddly toy idea, must start looking around for something suitable. Oh, and it's one of these; An MPU five headless. Sort of a Wal-alike in some ways but with a definite character of it's own. Love it.
