ACG Recurve 4 String

Post by eude »

No trades please.

It's with a heavy heart that I'm putting my ACG Recurve 4 string up for sale.
I have a baby on the way in July and a new ACG 6 string fretless following afterwards, so the one in - one out policy is going to have to be respected more so than ever, for basses at least!

Here's the bass on Alan's site >> http://archive.acguitars.co.uk/portfoli ... ort-scale/

The bass is a nice mix of ACG's modern, considered design and fancy wood specs, with a more traditional yet extremely flexible electronics set up.
It has a 31.5" scale, which makes for an extremely playable and comfortable instrument without any shortcomings whatsoever.

ACG Recurve DC 4 String Custom
31.5” scale
Black Limba body with Kingwood top
Ash/Wenge/Ash neck with flat Wenge fingerboard
Asymmetrical neck profile
Super comfy 36mm nut width
ACG B Series PB (split coil) pickup at the neck/mid position, OSB (overwound single coil) pickup at the bridge
Custom ACG/East Preamp with 4 way rotary pickup selector switch and active/passive rotary switch
Hipshot Type B bridge with 19mm spacing
Gotoh GB720 tuners
Currently fitted with Newtone strings (will ship with a set of D'Addario EXL160M Nickels)
It comes with a £150 worth of Fusion F1 Hybrid Gigbag

And here's some lovely pics...

Bloody hell, that is lovely Ewan. Good thing it doesn't have 5 strings (perhaps the body was originally made for that though?).

I can tell from experience on other ACG basses that the low E will be no slouch, don't let the short scale fool you on that one. In addition, and this is from personal experience, Ewan packs and sends his basses bomb proof.
Finnbass.com - it has a certain, indefinable, double entendre quality about 't which ye canna quite put yer finger on.....

Interesting scale length - what's the story behind that?

Lovely bass by the way!

Thank you mate, very kind :)
I'm fairly sure its a 4 string neck on a 4 string body, but I'm no expert ;)

The E string is very very nice too.

Thanks buddy.
The 31.5" scale, was pretty much because Alan recommended it as a good choice.
I usually play 33" basses, which feel a lot nicer than 34"ers to me, especially with regular 45-105 strings as they still have a nice weight but are more pliable, which has kind of become the fashion when it comes to strings now, think Dunlop Super Brights.

Anyway, the logic would figure that a 31.5" scale bass would give a similar vibe when compared to a 32", if that makes sense?
That's all post decision justification though.

All I know is it feels and sounds great!
