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.

@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?

      I've been trying to find our more about my Hohner headless bass from the late 80's which  has a jack on the reverse and a strap with a rotating connector so that you can spin the guitar as in ZZ Top style ( but without the fur!).  Does anyone else have this? I can't find out anything about them.
      Luckily it has a conventional jack because it's totally impractical

      Purchased on reverb.
      Happy so far, fretboard was well used, gunky shall we say. Gave it a good clean and sanded the back of the neck a little and set up, plays well so far. Got for reduced price, now I know why! Seller was upfront to be fair. I'll give it a few weeks. These are beautiful basses, the white with maple neck and black pg is🤟
      Haven't fully played but nice to have active jazz for 250 quid!

      Update by Jan 1st: Buyer‘s from within UK should be aware that for imports from EU to UK since Jan 1st the UK VAT will be applicable. This VAT has to be paid by the UK buyer once the goods are crossing the borders. Note: As a private seller in EU I can not reduce the price for second hand goods as VAT has never been included in the price. (Quote borrowed from mr bassman.de)
      I have an OLD MM Bongo 6, one of the first. The Bongo 6 was introduced in the spring of 2008; my bass is "born" March 26th 2008. 
      It is a black HH that has some mileage, but I had it refurbished when I bought it. There were some laquer flaws, but now it is black where it should be black. No dings in the wood. The neck is nice and smooth; plays like butter. December 31st is the deadline for you-know-what, since this bass lives in Sweden. Here are some pictures:

      A very nice bass; everything works as it should. Rosewood board on this; the new ones have ebony. I favour rosewood. I am very, very ambivalent giving this gem up, but it really ain't my cup of tea. String spacing at bridge is 17.5 mm/0.69-0.70". Delivered in the Hiscox case you see...
      Any questions: ask! Trades? Well, try me.
