I have one, but not for sale
About the FAB, I agree with the previous poster that the FAB misses the dynamics in the sound, it does not have the typical alembic series sparkle. However the sound even though does not match the alembic quality it does sound pretty exellent for it's price. In fact, I can't name a bass in that price range that sounds, feels and looks better.
I compare the FAB similar to a JayDee quality,the FAB has better wood work though and is cheaper. Not to forget that these basses (especially in good original condition) are very rare.
Personally I am suprised that these copies still are being sold so cheap. They are worth double the price. I mean you have basically a Series 1 alembic with all the versatile and hifi sound options, it feels and plays like a (dream) alembic and it even got a hum canceler.
The only bad thing I can mention is that the FAB170 has a terrible neckdive just like the real thing lol. Its good copy in every way
edit to add: sorry for bumping this thread, I found it in google. I notice now that its a very old thread hehe
