SOLD---ACG Finn 5 string
£800

Recommended Posts

Hi All

Having a bit of a clear out.. Gonna let some really good stuff go but hey ho... I (Think) i've finally come to the realisation that i only need 2 basses max and much less in the way of effects and paraphernalia... We will see how it goes eh...

First up: This brilliant brilliant 5 string, asymmetric neck carve and filter pickups. Plays like a dream and has a huge tonal palette from vintage to modern (My current plan is to sell all my unused stuff, keep 1 4 string and commission a custom 5 string build from ACG that should tell you enough)

This particular bass was originally sold at MBL and i picked it up in a trade on here


Here are some specs etc: [url="http://www.acguitars.co.uk/acg_admin/wordpress/portfolio/0135-mbl-finn-5/"]http://www.acguitars...135-mbl-finn-5/[/url]

Comes with a 2nd-hand hardcase that is non-too-fancy but does the job. I'm asking £800 delivered in the UK. More (at cost) for full and proper courier insurance or overseas shipping.

Is it a 34 inch?
If so how is the B string?
Is the fretboard flat?
How does it balance on a strap?
Anything in the way of dings/knocks?

Thanks!

Yep flat/zero radius. Plays brilliantly
34 inch scale. Great B string IMO
Balances perfectly on a strap. It's quite a weighty bass I guess but doesn't feel it cos it balances so well.
It has a couple of tiny marks/dents on the front which are pretty hard to picture. It came to me like that. If you want I will have a go at getting a close up. But it's pretty negligable.

+ thanks for all the kind words folks 😊

I'm the original owner and it's a gorgeous bass. And an absolute bargain I must add!
If it was 4 strings I would still own it - but unfortunately it has one too many and that's why I got my Krell...

Good luck with the sale!

Sounds a plan... there is always some down the back of the sofa... sometimes there is some behind that dusty random ornament on the mantelpiece too (just a heads up there)

This bass is great for metal too guys (obvz)

TTT :)
