AC Guitars has revamped their offering with the Standard series, which the company says offers “outstanding value for money sitting below [their] custom basses.” The line offers each of the company’s models with reduced options to keep prices and wait times down.
Standard basses can be ordered in 4-, 5-, and 6-string versions with a choice of scale lengths. All of the models are bolt-on and fitted with ACG B Series pickups matched to an ACG/East Custom Custom P-Retro preamp.
While the options for woods are reduced, there is plenty to choose from. Bodies can be built with black limba, white limba, or alder and topped with an exotic wood. The 3-piece neck can be either American Ash or maple topped with a rosewood or wenge fingerboard. All models have 24 frets with alloy side dots and a 0º fingerboard radius.
Hardware includes a Hipshot B-Type bridge, Gotoh tuners, and Dunlop Dual Design straplocks.
The AC Guitars Standard Series basses are built in Scotland by luthier Alan Cringean. They are available for order now with price points of $1,640 for four and five-string basses and $1,750 for six-string basses.
