Used F Bass AC Signature 5 string Fretless Bass Guitar

The AC-Signature fretless has been developed in collaboration with Canadian jazz legend Alain Caron since the mid 1980’s. This series was inspired by Alain’s desire to have one fretless bass that could do it all—anything from acoustic to modern electric tones, a big clear voice to hold down a groove and an extended range fingerboard with easy access for soloing. Al often refers to playing fretless as a second language, so it was imperative that this instrument be highly expressive and sensitive to playing dynamics.

This is achieved through an original semi-chambered design, procurement of premium lumber used in traditional upright bass builds, the handwound F Bass single-coil pickup, RMC Piezo saddle pickup system, and a natural & transparent F Bass preamp. This is a highly refined instrument and has been dubbed by our players as the “King of Fretless”!
