Duesseldorf / Germany

Recommended Posts

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

Specs:
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.

TRADED

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.

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

But this bass is wonderful !

      Beautiful Overwater fretless bass, custom made for the original owner around 2005.
      The bass has a stunning quilted maple top and a nice green/blue burst finish. The fretboard is made of ebony.  It's an active bass.
      Pics:
















      There are several cosmetic damages to be found around the bass; dents, scratches, missing paint chips; battle scars. The fretboard shows signs of use but is definitely in very good condition. All hardware and electronics function like they should. The bass plays very well and has plenty of the mwah you want from a decent fretless. 
      An original, high quality Overwater gigbag/softcase is included.
      Now €1.150
      I am located in the Netherlands, but happy to ship at buyers risk (insured, well packed)

      Lovely, lovely little fretless here, made by Vintage, however I cant find any model number info anywhere on the bass, if you know let me know  (mystery solved - its a V940)
      Active circuitry, fitted with some unknown black flatwounds, it plays incredibly well. Knobs are master vol, pick up select, and bass and treble active pots, giving this a fairly broad tonal palette.

      Condition wise, very very good, I cant find any dings on it. The main body wood is some sort of bubinga/wenge type, with an open grain, but not as deep as wenge so I don't think its that. Weight is 4.2kg according to my bathroom scales.
      In summary, a really nice bass. Only reason this is being let go is I have too many fretlii as it is. Collection much preferred, although I do get around the country a bit with my various works, so could possibly bring somewhere near to you.

      For sale is my gorgeous Limelight 1960 Stack Knob Fretless Jazz bass in Sherwood Green with medium relic. I had this made by Mark at Limelight to my specifications. As with all Limelight basses it sounds and plays beautifully.
      Details are,
      Unlined Ebony Fretless neck 38mm nut width. Hand rolled finger board. Aged nitro finish on the neck. Parchment scratchplate. Gotoh Vintage reverse tuners. Aged finish in nitro-cellulose. Lightly tarnished metal work. Stack knobs. Earth grounding strip from bridge to bridge pick up. Mute holes. Thumb Rest (Below strings). Hootenanny button on the back of the headstock. Period correct Fender logo. Weight 4.3kg Limelight make wonderful replica Fender basses and this one is no exception. Sounds and plays beautifully. It's very hard to photograph Sherwood Green as in some photos it looks green and in others it looks blue. So the last photo is next to a blue pot and a green pot which helps show the true colour of the bass.
      I paid £1123 for this at the start of 2020 and it has never been gigged or even left the house. Price is £750, based in Camberley, Surrey and UK shipping included.
      Would consider trades for the following,
      Fender Precision American Vintage Reissue 62 or 57 in Sunburst or White with cash your way.
      Fender Precision American Standard 2008 onwards (high mass bridge, lightweight Hipshot tuners and knurled chrome flat-top controls) in Sunburst with Rosewood neck.
      Fender American Performer Precision.
