The Great British Bass Lounge team really love all things ACG, this ACG J Type Bass Guitar is no exception with an East Uni-Pre 4K preamp providing one of if not thee best sounding basses we have on offer.
Some guitar builders will look to sit in the furrow of conformed style and looks, neither of these attributes can be associated with a bass build by ACG, the build quality is from a realm way above the price point whilst the level of originality in the design and aesthetics are remarkable. Couple the looks to electronics which provide an incomparable range of output quality and tonal range. On offer here at the Great British Bass Lounge are a choice of basses with all the individuality you would expect from this prestigious brand. This model is the J Type 4 string with astonishing simplicity and playability. This bass is a rich combination of careful planning, design and craftsmanship. The Ash body with “dirty pore” Ash top is very individual. The neck is 3 piece Maple with impregnated Rocklite fingerboard with the addition of the matched headstock completing the picture.
Absolutely worthy of further mention are the Electronics that drive the sound out of this bass in typical ACG style. The AC FB Humbucker as used in this bass is a hum cancelling pickup that uses coils which are rotated through 90 degrees with magnets inside them placed against a single blade of steel running the length of the pickup. This gives the advantage of hum cancelling while still maintaining the narrow magnetic aperture of a single coil. The bridge and neck versions have different gauges of wire and number of turns giving added versatility to the sounds you can get from your ACG bass.
The UNI-PRE 4 Knob is a new generation bass preamp system from East UK. Its main components are a Volume/Blend module and EQ. The Volume/Blend has totally independent dual active and passive signal paths, controlled simultaneously with a conventional knob set. The EQ module allows internal voicing adjustment for the treble as well as the lower and upper bass frequencies. This is in order to allow finely tuned focus on the most crucial bass spectrum.
