WITHDRAWN – ACG Recurve S-type 6 MINT
£1650

Recommended Posts

[s]I'm surprisingly sad about having to admit that I just can't cope with any more than 5 strings! I try to never become emotionally involved with an instrument but I just couldn't help it with this one.
My hands just can't manoeuvre around a 6 string neck like I want them to and despite giving it a few months for me to get used to it, it's just not happening :-(

I fully intend to get essentially the same bass but with only 5 strings from Alan as soon as I have the cash (something a lot like this, if not this very one [url="http://www.acguitars.co.uk/acg_admin/wordpress/portfolio/0123-recurve-sc-classic-5-string/"]http://www.acguitars...assic-5-string/[/url])

This is my ACG (custom – not graft) Recurve single cut 6 string, spec as follows:
Ziracote top with 4mm Sycamore/4mm Wenge accent and Flame Sycamore body. Satin finish.
7 piece Wenge/Maple neck with acrylic impregnated Flame Sycamore board bound with Ziracote.
Asymmetric neck carve with flat finger board.
ACG EQ03 5 A/P pre-amp, ACG FB hum buckers.
Hipshot Type A bridge, 18 mm spacing.

Here's a link to Alan's portfolio page for this beauty: [url="http://www.acguitars.co.uk/acg_admin/wordpress/portfolio/0100-recurve-sc-s-stype-6-string/"]http://www.acguitars...stype-6-string/[/url]

It is in mint condition, complete with Hiscox case, it's lived in there whenever I've not been holding it, never been on a stand, been used at 6 or 8 practices, never gigged, and has a full spare set of new strings (I've not even worn out the original strings on it yet).

To comission this new from Alan would cost you in excess of £2k now!

I'm in Sheffield and would prefer local collection / meet up within about an hours drive radius as it's not particularly light (11lbs) and would be v pricey to ship. I will consider UK shipping though if it seals the deal.[/s]

This is a lush bass. Andy brought it 'round mine one day. It plays fantastically and just has so many tones available.

Andy is a top chap as well so deal with confidence.

Good luck with the sale.

sad indeed matey, I doubt the neck could be reworked to remove an entire string's width from it though :(

I have a Fretless 5 by Alan and played this when I went to pick mine up.... I've had a Yammy TRB6P original series, Pulcinella 6 and tried many others. This bass is BEST six you'll EVER play. I have no dosh and no way of getting any... saddest man on the forum. :(
There's no better 6 on here regardless of brand or money.. IMHO... oh and I'm right BTW.,
I won't say 'good luck' just hope someone realises what an opprortunity this is...

With regret i have had to back out of a trade deal for this bass. However, this was purley based on my inability to play bass to the standard required! This is a gorgeous looking instrument and i cant imagine you will find this kind of quality in a bass built by anyone for anything like this price! If it had 5 strings it would be mine, although i do not think the owner would part with it either....

BUMP

It's a shame matey, I reckon you'd have loved the extra sonic girth to be had from the extra string, a low b is a beautiful thing as is a high c, I just can't do both at once, I may need 2 5 strings once b-g and one e-c, yes I think that's the way forward for me, more basses :gas:

Aw man, if only! Too many plans this year to part with that much cash. Unless you want a Kawasaki ER6f?

sorry bud, while I'd kinda like a bike my wife won't allow it. I can heartily recommend ACG though, this one's heading back up that way for Alan to sell on my behalf and I'm having one of his other ones that's a 5 string, they're so good!

Good luck with the sale then, Andy.
Maybe see you around Sheffield at Tramlines? I'm playing Dove and Rainbow on the Saturday night ~9pm.
