It's with a heavy heart I'm selling my beautiful, custom ACG 6-String bass. Specific details of this instrument can be found on the ACG website (https://www.acguitars.co.uk/project/0270salceetype6/)
I've owned this bass since new, having seen Alan's amazing work whilst attending the Moffat bass bash and knew I had to have one of his instruments. Unfortunately it's not getting played as much as it deserves so I feel it needs to find a new home.
Top Wood: Figured Maple with Faded Black Finish.
Body Wood: Swamp Ash with Dirty Finish.
Body Finish: Satin Lacquer
Neck Wood: 5 piece Wenge/Bubinga
Finger Board: Acrylic Impregnated Spalted Maple
Neck Finish: Satin Lacquer
Pickups: ACG FB Humbuckers
Hardware: ETS Tuning/Bridge unit ACG Custom Headpiece Schaller Straplocks,
Pre-amp: ACG/East P-Retro with 4-way rotary pickup selector.
£1600, I will consider a part ex (up to £600 value) for the right bass, I do however need at least £1000 cash out of the sale. New, this bass would cost £2795. It's in fantastic condition and comes with a heavily padded Fusion gig bag. Collection from Newcastle upon Tyne, I'd really rather not post but will meet buyers a reasonable distance from Newcastle to facilitate a sale.
This ad is a relist of the original, I have recently moved house and needed to update my location.
A rare thru neck ACG Headless Harlot 5
A1 Immiculate, as new condition. So a new ACG for half the price.
We’re talking exotic wood for days here: sycamore, Asian ebony, Wenge, flamed maple and swamp ash.
It has grub screws for use with normal strings if that’s what you want.
Just fitted a brand new GLOCKENKLANG stacked 3 band Preamp, made huge improvement on the sound vs the previous John East Eq01. Super transparent
To commission it would cost in region of £3,000, although I’ve heard that Alan doesn’t now make thru necks.
Perfectly low action, blue fibre optic dots on the side of the neck (which I found a lot better for use on a dark stage than the brighter LEDs that are common) plays like a dream and has plenty of punch.
The fretboard is zero radius and the neck is asymmetrical (slightly thinner on the G side and thicker at the E). Unorthodox but I’m never consciously aware of it and find it very comfy: the neck plays itself.

Not getting the playing time that it deserves, excellent bass that’s super comfortable to play with its 30.5” scale length, suits E-C but I have it set up with heavy gauge hex core boomers and played lovely in B-G as well,
The preamp is amazing, so versatile and great as a studio tool to get loads of tones, passive bypass gives a great natural tone as well.
Here are the specs.
body wood is Alder
top wood is Eucalyptus burl which is stunning
neck is Wenge and Ash
Fingerboard is ACG’s signature acrylic impregnated Wenge for superior stability with luminescent inlays which glow on a dark stage.
Weight is 8.01lbs
Bridge pickup is the Acg SB single coil and the neck is the Acg FB humbucker
preamp is the ACG DFM 5k/AP which is the full dual filter modular with push pull mid boost for both pickups, passive/active switch with tone roll off pot as well.
there is 1 small blemish on the back behind the lower horn I’ll include a picture.
comes with the original semi Hard shell case.
I will ship at buyers risk, I would prefer collection or I’m happy to drive up to 100 miles to meet up.
Superb and rare Status S2 n°41 from the 80's, in very good condition for its age.
The praise for this bass is well established, the legendary Status sound!
It is a real collector's item with some marks on the gloss.
