My ACGs. Ten little beauties.

Recommended Posts

I've been getting it in the ear from Eude, particularly, for a family portait of my ACGs.

Well Mrs Scoop went out with the kids so I released them all from their hidey-holes and quickly ran off a few snaps before she got home again.

Here you go...

The Fivers L to R: Skelf SC; Moth; Recurve Classic; Graft Harlot.

The fours: Tefano; Finn; Recurve; Graft Finn; Recurve fretless and new J Type in foreground.

And now some random shots from slightly different elevations.

I am, though I'm sure I need not point this out to those with eyes, the world's crappest photographer.

He's 12. Check out the coolness of the Gomez Addams inspired top lip!

How do you find the Moth bass? I laughed my head off when I saw it (in approval) but didn't get the chance to have a good play on it.

I love the look of the Moth...different in a good way!!

It's great, Kev. I'm not much of a fretless player (and I already own two - an ACG Recurve and a Schecter) so I asked Alan to fret the Moth for me, change the nut and cut it to accommodate an E to C tuning. All the fivers I've owned in the past have been low Bs so the Moth is very different in lots of ways for me.

It's remarkably comfortable to play, either sitting or standing and Alan's understanding of ergonomics is absolutely spot on. There isn't a single square inch of wood on that bass that doesn't serve *some* well defined purpose and given the performance parameters that Alan set himself I don't see how the Moth could have ended up looking any differently whatsoever. Soundwise it can also hack it as the overwound singlecoil and the piezo give it two very extreme tonal ends with a lovely blended middle.

I'm very happy with it; can't wait to gig it in fact, but before I do I'm going to need to spend some more time figuring out what to do with a high C. It's a complete novelty to me after 37 years of playing and damn it confuses the bejeebus out of me sometimes. I'll get there...

There's an ACG porn thread? Wither...?

[my memory is so appaling, I'm actually a little worried/amused that I might have done something daft like *started* the thread and then forgotten it exists]

I personally think you should make some videos of them for us all

I'd be happy to do them if you don't mind paying the postage Scoop ;)

I can't see a fellow BC'er lumbered with all that work. I'll do a few. You know, just to help out.

Can you feel the love Scoop? :)
We'll, finally, be moving on the 31st, so anytime after that would be great :yarr:

Your love is only right and proper, what with me being the exceptional [and modest] person I am. But videos? Loaning out basses so others can make videos? Pffft! 'Taint natural, mate.
