ACG Krell A Type 33" fretted 5

Recommended Posts

I am blown away by Alan's basses, so much so that as a 50th birthday present to me my family are all clubbing together to buy me a new 5 string fretted to go with my two Recurves.

Alan has been very patient with me while I fret over the spec, but we've now settled on the following:

Shape: Krell A Type
Scale: 33”
Body core: Alder (lightweight)
Top/veneer: Myrtle with Black 1mm veneer
Neck woods: 5 piece Maple/Mahogany, bolt on
Fingerboard: Macassar Ebony
Radius: flat
Head plate to match body top, with black veneer
Back plate to match body, with black veneer
Bridge: ACG/Hipshot 18mm spacing black
Pre-amp ACG DFM 4K AP
Pickups: FB series in 32 x 110 casings
Gotoh GB350 Resolite tuners
Dunlop dual design Straplocks
Standard finish of oil rubbed satin lacquer

Here's the top :)

Saw Alan post this earlier, it's going to be a peach, one of my favourite ACGs ever I think :)
