ACG Salace E 6-String Headless Bass *price drop to £1600*
Hitching, Hertfordshire

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

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
Scale: 34″
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.

Price drop from £1900 to £1600. New, this bass would cost £2795. It's in fantastic condition and comes with a heavily padded Fusion gig bag. Collection from Hitchin, Hertfordshire or delivery/meet a reasonable distance from North Herts.

That's a hell of a bass and real steal at that price!

Good luck with the sale, I can't imagine this will hang around.

Beautiful bass!

What's the weight and the string spacing at the bridge?

Hi Sardar, thank you!

The bass is 4.3kg and the string spacing at the bridge is 16mm

@Nicholasbt I need a cash sale

@visog yes it has one of the John East P-Retro pre-amps which has a filter type EQ

This is stunning...

About the preamp though, the P Retro is a regular preamp, as opposed to a filter?  Or is this something different?

      So it seems like there are not a lot of short scale fretless basses around, but if I can find a decent one within my budget limit I sort of ponder on buying one in the near future.
      I'll like it to be max 30" scale length, preferably be a 4 string, and my budget limit would be about 400£, but I'd prefer cheaper, as long as it is still decent (I would suspect a pickup upgrade down the line being necessary anyway in this kind of price class).
      Does such a bass exist?
      All suggestions are welcome.

      Konig & Meyer Double Bass Stool is for sale.
      Bought 9 years ago, it has had a light use. It is a very good condition. Backrest and Footrest are both removable.
      Height: 58-82 cm
      Weight: 8.5 kg(including backrest and footrest)
                   6.5 kg(without backrest)
      Collection in person preferred, but we can drop it off if within 5 miles from central Cambridge.

      A white, single-ply plastic pickguard/scratchplate for a standard P-bass. Holes cut for standard split pickup, volume and tone controls, and jack socket. 13 countersunk screwholes, and two either side of the pickup hole, should you wish to add an ashtray.
      I won't lie: this is an old, cheap part, taken from a Brandoni self-assembly kit I acquired around 2000-1.The original white colour has faded, but apart from a bit of scuffing on the edges, it's in pretty good nick. Ideal for anyone looking to complete a parts bass on the cheap. Free to a loving owner; this comes from a smoke free home, we have had cats but neither of them have sat on this scratchplate to the best of my knowledge.
      (I'll pop a photo in here once I've cleaned it up!)

      For sale is a Panda Audio Future Impact v3 Bass Synth.
      Bought the pedal in May 2020 and has only seen use at home. Never rehearsed or gigged with the pedal so is in excellent condition, as can be seen in the photos.
      These are very powerful, very versatile synth pedals. Based off of the original Akai Deep Impact pedal and famed for its use by Chris Wolstenholme of Muse.
      A tonne of info on the FI v3 here: http://pandamidi.com/bass-guitar-synth/
      Bought new for €299, open to sensible offers.
      Cash on collection preferred from South East London.
