Up for sale here..No trades (sorry)

Is a stunning ACG Krell bass, purchased from @Aris on Basschat a couple of months ago..Total Gentleman.

This bass is in near as new condition,very very  light playing wear, no dents or dings. i believe it was commissioned in 2019..Maybe a member here can supply more information on this?

Alan Cringean luthiership is just second to none, just incredible!! As good as I've had the fortune to play/own...Sei, Manson, Shuker etc.

I am reluctantly putting this up for sale. It is a joy to play, stunning neck profile. Amazing low action if that is your thing. The bass sounds amazing!!! If you like dialing in your tone, the opportunities are almost endless with the ACG filter preamp..The controls (more pushes and pulls than a church organ..lol) and with the trim pots in the control cavity. If you want to go passive. Brilliant too..Acoustically punchy..You really feel the resonance of the strings running through the bass..The arm rest is incredibly comfy, that is a wonderful touch on this bass😃👍

34 inch scale 1.5 inch nut.

 Spalt Flame maple top..stunning!

Black Walnut body.

5 piece Maple/Wenge/flame Maple/Wenge/ maple neck with a stunning Birdseye Maple fingerboard. Dual action truss rod with 2 Carbon rods.

Spalt maple headstock front, Walnut rear headstock with  black veneers between.

ACG Hipshot Bridge 18mm spacing.

Gotoh Resolite Tuners... 

Pickups ACG.

9V Preamp ACG DFM 4KAP.

Dunlop straplocks.

ACG toolkit.

Hiscox case.

Neutrik locking socket.

Oil rubbed satin lacquer finish..so easy to play..

These basses will cost in the realms £2400 and rightly so with exemplary craftsmanship..This bass in near as new condition for £1200!! Shipped to UK only..SO BARGAIN!!

Welcome to try out

Any questions please ask..😃👍

£1200 is cheap for an ACG! Excellent basses these - Having owned at some point or another one (or more!) of almost every 'boutique' bass brand out there, ACG are my personal favourite. Currently have 4 of Alan's creations and none will be sold. The build quality is of the absolute highest order, equalled by a very small number of builders and surpassed by none in my opinion.

Whoever buys this will love it I'm sure!

I would like a look at this. I’m in Edinburgh tomorrow and can drop by during the day. Would it be possible to try it out through your amp?

After a visit down to Alan Cringean at AC Guitars in Moffat this week..I have decided in many ways, why this bass is just way to good to sell, let alone at the price I was offering!!! I sat down back at home and played this bass for 3 hours and realised what a wise decision I was making..Truly fantastic bass!!! Thanks Alan..👍😃

Wise sir. Wise. You'd spend twice your asking price to get something remotely comparable!

      Fender Jazz bass, Mexican 2016, 4 string. Maple neck with black block inlays and black bindings along fretboard. Natural finish. Great bass, sad to sell it but I'm married to my others and I'd prefer it was being played. Comes with hard case. First time seller on here so don't hesitate to let me know if you need some more info!

      This is my 2019 Ibanez SR300EB. 
      Its the weathered black finish. Really nice condition, just a mark on the back from a belt buckle. Just fitted new Roto strings 45-105 roundwound. Plays really nice, lovely narrow neck. Sounds good, everything works as it should. All completely standard. 
      Reasonable offers considered 
      Would also take a swap for a Squier Precision or similar.

      Hi everone
       
      I'm taking delivery of a dingwall NG2 4 String next week. I really like light strings on my bass ideally 35-95 or there about. Has anyone any experience of lighter strings on this type of bass I.e. long scale with fanned frets.

      If so, what variety have you gone for. I spotted the HI-Beams and Elite Stadium strings day are quite long but I'm not sure if long enough. I may just end up going for the dingwall strings but they are heavier gauge than I'd ideally like.
      Any advice much appreciated.

      Price Drop £1049 Included a ton of pictures so you can all appreciate this beauty! Reason for selling....with a heavy heart I am on the look out for a 2 band Stingray. Would Trade for a USA 2 Band EQ Stingray  
      Its in a very rare limited colour! In low light it looks like copper, medium light pearl brown/red and in full daylight it has a pearl sparkle to its finish. Bass is in excellent condition! Included a matching high quality strap, strap locks, all case goodies. Official Music Man Hard Case No truss rod, neck, fret or any issues of any sort! Neck is magic to the touch. As this is an active bass it has faint electronic hum/noise that goes away once the strings or metal parts are touched, some quick copper shielding should fix this.  
      Bass is immaculately cleaned with no rust or dirt/grime! Bass Weights 4.55kg. Freshly strung with Rotosound Steel  50-110! Has general wear and tear, a few scratches but only surface light scratches near the pick guard and on the pick guard. Due to Covid, not testing and only will be posting to address in the UK.

      Dean B2 Bromberg signature 4 string..FOR SALE ONlY 
      Now only £320 shipped..Bargain of bargains this!! Give away at this price, for this quality!! 😃👍
      Reluctantly putting this wonderful bass up for sale..This is the second one of these I have owned after regretting selling the first one!! Why? I am funding a new bass and needs must..These are super rare. I believe because owners find them to good and versatile. I have not seen one for sale in the open market for 5 years!! I have been fortunate in my past to have owned a Peavey B Quad, which this bass is based upon, and bar for the Modulus neck the Dean wins the race hands down in my humble opinion, much more versatile!!
      Amber burst finish, Brass nut 1.5 inch, weight 8.7lbs, 34 scale, Grover tuners, Dean Jazz pickups, fishman bridge with Piezo saddles, Abalone B2 on the 12th fret, 24 frets all fully accessible due to deep cutaways on the bass. Basswood body, Beautiful flame maple top and peghead veneer,maple neck with walnut stringers and rosewood fingerboard.
      Controls, considerably easier to use than to look at. lol.By pickups front to back. Master Volume, Piezo Volume, selector switch, magnetic only/Magnetic and Piezo/Piezo..Back knobs. Stacked lower Bass cut/boost top treble cut/ boost. Middle knob..stacked knob at front, top volume bridge pickup lower volume neck pickup..This makes the bass capable of literally all styles of playing..Oh and yes really cuts into the mix..
      A true joy to play jazz style neck..
      Overall excellent condition for a 12 year old bass, a few dings, nothing major. neck pristine.Battery box latch works fine but plastic clasp chewed..
      These basses new were £700-£800 new..and rightly so..This is anything but a low end budget bass, Think very top of the range Ibanez..I am asking £400 but in reality as they donk come up at all. I don't honestly know..I need to sell so don't be shy make me an offer.I can but say yes or no?😃👍
      Will ship to mainland UK for £20
      Any questions, please ask.
      Cheers.
