For Sale 2nd PRICE REDUCTION: 2013 FBass AC5 (Alain Caron) Lined Fretless
Purchased new from Bass San Diego in Nov 2014. Per its serial number (580913), it was made in late 2013 and I believe delivered to BSD in early 2014; sat on their showroom for a while. The condition of the bass is very good, I'd say a 9.5/10, with a small indentation on the front and a couple of minimal scrapes on the top of the headstock. The bass is a lined fretless with dots on both the top fingerboard and side of neck. There are also lines on the side of the fingerboard to assist intonation. Currently strung with Labella Deep Talkin' Black Nylon Tape Wounds-I can restring with FBass steel strings if preferred.
As it turns out, I only play my trusty Rob Allen Deep 5 fretless and this has seen limited use as a backup. It's probably been out of my house to only a couple of jazz gigs and a handful of rehearsals over the last year and a half-it's practically brand new and I can't justify keeping such a magnificent instrument without playing it-my loss will be your gain!
