F Bass AC5 Fretless Redwood Burl Top - Traded
Duesseldorf / Germany

Recommended Posts

Selling my beloved F Bass Alain Caron AC5 Fretless with Redwood Burl Top and nearly all upgrades you can imagine  

Redwood Burl top (Upgrade !),
5A Flame maple body with acoustic chambers,
34 scale (upgrade !)
18 mm string spacing at bridge (upgrade !)
5-pc-neck (upgrade !)
Neck-Through design (upgrade !)
Natural gloss finish,
Ebony fingerboard without lines,
2x magnetic pickups (additional neck pickup is an upgrade !),
Ebony bridge with Piezo-PUs,
Preamp with 3-band EQ,
Pearl serial number
Black hardware,
Incl. Hardcase,
Weight: 4,30 kg
Currently strung E-C

This is a fully loaded version of the "King of Fretless" model. The bunch of upgrades makes this bass rare and unique: Neck-Through, 2nd magnetic pickup, 34", 19mm, 5pc-neck ...

Like new condition, not a single mark on it. For those who did never hear one of these, check "FBass AC6" at YT and you find a lot of world-class fretless players demonstrating this amazing fretless bass model.

Technically everything is perfect and works fine. The top is breathtaking and the bass with its smaller sizes is a joy to play. The smooth shapings are simply amazing.

This bass would retail today north of 12.000 USD plus shipping and import.

Rainer, when you say smaller sizes, I guess you mean the 34 inches scale and the 18 mm strings spacing at the bridge... Because, owning an AC5 and having owned an AC6, it's not a small bass. 😉 

That said, it's a beautiful one.

Was once mine, bought it here on basschat some years ago. It really sings and looks fantastic.

It's a pity, I'm looking for a fretless with lined frets.

But this bass is wonderful !

      5 string Spectorcore lined fretless bass in as new condition having had minimal use since buying brand new from Bass Direct last year. Still has the plastic wrapping on the electronics cover!
      This is the version with the Fishman piezo pickup in the bridge and the Bartolini pick up rather than the EMG.
      It’s 35” scale, passive and strung with rounds. It plays wonderfully and is a great bass for the money.
      Collection preferred from Cheltenham, Glos.

      Hi I bought this Alliance Fretless acoustic bass many years ago from Manchester Bass Center. I'm not going to say a know much about it. It's not a vintage Luthier made instrument by any means but it sounds nice to my ears both amplified and unamplified. It also looks quite nice too with some nice cream binding. One slight dink I've marked by the jack socket but nothing major at all. Low light today so pictures a bit tricky.
      Has a simple 9volt preamp onboard. 
      No major fingerboard wear. Made in Korea. Played a lot but looked after.
      Socially distanced collection fine.
      I do have a large ish packaging box too if delivery needed but it is an acoustic instrument and would not take kindly to delivery man treatment if abused 🙂.
