I am considering parting ways with this stunning piece of art created by AC Guitars. I recently acquired it from @Bass Wielder (thanks again Michael!). I love everything about this bass: it looks and sounds amazing (those humbuckers... yummy), I had never played an instrument so resonant before, it just sings. So why consider selling it? Well I already have a fretless 4 and I realized that I would rather have a fretted 6er than a fretless 5. The fretless 4 is sufficient for my needs and I am quite interested in exploring the (hopefully) wonderful world of 6 string bass. This is why I would not only consider but possibly prefer a trade against a good 6er. I don't mind adding/receiving a small part in cash to compensate any difference in value between this gorgeous ACG and your lovely fretted 6 😉
Ideally I would prefer 6er with narrower string spacing (< 19 mm, 17.5 or below being my preference) and a reasonable weight (4.5 kg/10 lbs or below).
The ACG weighs about 4.5 kg according to my bathroom scale and comes in the Hiscox case you can see on the picture. The bass is in excellent state, no specific dings or scratches as far as I can see. I was built around 2014 if I remember correctly. Here are the specs straight from the ACG website ( http://www.acguitars.co.uk/project/0172-finn-r-type-fretless-5/ )

Below is also the original posting from @Bass Wielder
Hi, I've decided to sell my lovely double bass to make room for more equipment. I'm sure many of you will know more about these basses than me. I understand them to be a solid top with plywood back. The sound is warm and plays evenly throughout the range. It was originally set up/overhauled for me by bass repairer, Harvey Weston.
For sale trade this beautiful Mayones Jabba Custom Buckeye Burl.
I bought this bass in new condition at Bass Direct this year.

Sadly I have to go for a smaller lighter cabinet now. Less than 2 years old, still a current model that retails just under £1000, this cab is immaculate - complete with removable castors, I also have the original box. It has been gigged a few times with my TH500 but only in a small venue so has not been pushed hard. The cabinet is really well made, the sound is pure - with Aguilar you get out exactly what you put in.
Free collection from Epsom Surrey or I can send by courier for £50.
I also have a DB210 bought at the same time that will be going up for sale soon.
This cabinet was designed to have great low-end extension but with the punchy midrange that is the signature sound of the DB cabinet line. This combination makes the DB 115 full enough to reproduce the deep presence of a multi-string instrument while being focused enough to accommodate all playing styles. The DB 115 is versatile enough to pair with either the DB 210 or DB 410 for a very powerful full range rig or as a great standalone cabinet!
DB 115 400W 1x15 8 Ohm Bass Speaker Cabinet Specifications:
Speaker Compliment: One 15" cast frame woofer, 95 oz. magnet
Power handling: 400W RMS.
Impedance: 8 ohms.
Frequency response: 32 Hz - 3 kHz.
Sensitivity: 96 dB 1W 1M.
Includes removable casters.
Dimensions: 21 x 24.5 x 17.5 in.
Weight: 71 lb.
