*SOLD* ACG Salace E 6-String Headless Bass *reduced to £1500*
£1600
Newcastle upon Tyne

Recommended Posts

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.

Body:
Top Wood: Figured Maple with Faded Black Finish.
Body Wood: Swamp Ash with Dirty Finish.
Body Finish: Satin Lacquer

Neck:
Neck Wood: 5 piece Wenge/Bubinga
Finger Board: Acrylic Impregnated Spalted Maple
Scale: 34″
Neck Finish: Satin Lacquer

Hardware:
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.

£1500, I will consider a part ex (up to £500 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.

Andy - lovely bass and GLWTS. 

Just curious as have a build underway - what are the 4 rotary options you assigned here?

@Drax You're in for a treat, Alan makes some incredible instruments.

On this bass the rear pot is a 4-way selector for pickups (bridge only, both series, both parallel, neck only). The stacked pots behave differently depending on whether the bass is in passive or active mode, there's a bit more detail on the John East website HERE. What EQ option did you go for?

@gioby1 It has a volume control and 4-position pickup selector in addition to the EQ controls on the P-Retro.

sorry for my question but I see 3 pots: I suppose stacked ones are P-Retro EQ (one for each pickup) so are volume and 4-position pickup selector on the same 3rd pot? Thanks

@gioby1 No need to apologise, it's not a very normal setup. Moving from bridge to neck it goes pickup selector, stacked active EQ, stacked tone/volume. The switch is for passive/active.

I keep looking at this, and I keep wanting it, but my finances keep me from it! 

I don't even have anything to sell on at the moment!

To be honest I'd settle for finding a fiver on the floor! 

Though I'd need to do that 300 times before I could buy your bass!

Same here, keep coming back to this, even though I can't play 6s, it is too far away and I haven't had any luck selling stuff :)

Good luck with someone buying it before one of those changes!

      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

      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.

      Hi Guys,
       
      For sale or trade my Shuker Series 2 headless bass with Moses graphite neck (Steinberger replacement). I bought this from a fellow basschatter in September and then sent it to Jon to customize it. He installed an ebony ramp to my specs, replaced the EMG knobs with chrome ones and replaced the headpiece to suit single ball strings.
       
      However a few months ago I bought my first ever Ibanez bass (GWB-1) and realized that this is the sort of neck profile I really want (narrow and very slim neck). This neck would also allow me to play 5 strings which is my genuine preference.
       
      Actually the Moses neck is far from chunky and I've found it comfortable to play with my rather small hands.
       
      Condition: 10/10, like new, perfectly set up by Jon + Brand new Elixir strings. The tuners are like butter.
       
      Specs:
       
      - Alder body (not 100% sure)
      - Matt white finish with a shiny texture
      - EMG MMTW pickup
      - 3 way EMG preamp with parametric mids
      - Nut: 39 mm / 24th fret: 57 mm
      - 34” scale Moses graphite neck
      - 16.5 mm string spacing
      -  only 3.5 kg!
       
      I'm not too keen on trades since I have 3 other basses.
       
      Shipping is not included in the asking price.

      ACG Finn fretted 5, DFM 5K A/P,  Redwood Lace Burl top. Roll on 2021 😍
    • By Bass_Man_Baz
      for sale or trade 
      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. 
      Hipshot hardware. 

      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.
