This bass is now SOLD but is displayed here to help potential buyers that might be interested in ordering a new one. We are also hoping to have another of these in stock soon.
This bass is the “King of Fretless” with a very “BIG” sound!
This model was developed in collaboration with Alain Caron over many years. The AC line was inspired by Alain’s desire to have one bass that could do it all, having an extended range with easy access for soloing and being able to produce anything from acoustic to modern electric tones.
This wide variety of tonal possibilities is mainly due to the configuration of pickups and controls. As well as offering a “standard” magnetic tone, the piezo pickup and chambered body allows you access to acoustic tones, and the attack that an acoustic instrument offers.
The two separate volumes allow you to blend the magnetic and piezo pickups in any amount of each, not limiting you to the fixed levels of a blend control. The passive tone control functions whether in passive or active mode enabling it to modify a different set of frequencies than the ones affected by the active tone controls.
