Sadly I am forced to sell one of my "Lifer" basses
I was lucky enough to buy this beauty 4-5 years ago from the original owner who ordered it from Alembic.
He was a guitar player and needed a bass to play in his "Church Band" in California.
So he want ahead and ordered this amazing bass from Alembic.
He said he played it in church a few times and that was it.
I totally believe it, the bass arrived in brand new dead mint condition like it was never played!
I only play my basses in my home music room and they never leave my house.
So they stay in beautiful shape and are never gigged.
Plus I am a freak about the condition of my basses and they are always babied and cared for.
This bass was ordered and built in 2001.
The original "build sheet" from Alembic is included in the sale.
The "Build sheet" lists the names of each person who worked on it and all the specs. etc.
It has a mahogany body, highly figured zebra wood top, light blonde maple neck, purpleheart accents between neck and body layers.
The tuners I believe are Alembic signature made by Schaller in a gold finish.
The bridge and nut are the amazing Alembic cut brass.
The brass nut if fully adjustable.
The fretboard is markerless mahogany with side marker dots.
The bass will come with the Alembic supplied hard case for this model bass.
The case has never seen a gig and is in beautiful condition!
The guy I bought it from said it cost him over $3,000.00 when he ordered it in 2001.
I am listing it for close to half of that price!!!!!
My loss here will truly be someones gain!
The only two things to report are:
(1) about a week after I bought it I was removing it from the case to play it and bumped the case lid with my leg.
The case lid came down and put a scuff/scratch? in the finish in the mahogany body.
This is not bad at all really and is on the side of the bass and would be at the bottom per say when it is strapped on.
So it is never seen and is something you would need look for honestly. I just always mention everything and anything when I sell one of my babies/basses.
(2) This winter has been cold and the gas heat is dry.
My De-humidifier has crapped out and a few of my basses have shown a small amount of "fret sprout".
It is not bad, but it is there.
A week or two in a humid environment and it will expand back to the norm.
And the sprout will go away completely.
Again this is just something I noticed when I took it out to play it the other day and wanted to mention it in the listing.
Any other questions? Please shoot me a message here and I will try to get right back to you!
Check my feedback, it is perfect.
