    Cutting back on the stock. First up is a 1981 Alembic Distillate. Incredible condition, Koa, ebony board, OHSC. 2 small dimple nicks. Plays great with no issues. $2350.00 you pay the shipping. 9lbs. 4 oz. on bathroom scale. I don't have the spec sheet but this is my best guess:
    32 inch scale
    Koa top
    Koa headstock
    Walnut back
    Maple neck with purple heart stringers
    Ebony board
    Pearl Inlays

    ***SOLD***Second up is a 2011 Ernie Ball Musicman SR4HH
    Mint condition. I just got this in a trade but the tone is just not my thing. OHSC, and case candy included. $950.00 you pay the shipping. 9lbs. 4 oz.

    ***SOLD***Fourth up is a unique beast. It started as a 2011 American Standard Jazz bass I bought from GC new. I removed the neck and put a mint Steve Harris Precision neck on. Nice vintage tint and big and beefy. Then I put some DiMarzio Ultra Jazz pickups in. This was my gigging bass for the last year. Currently has a custom Buddha pick guard on but it's not for everyone. I believe I still have the original tort guard if you want that instead. No dings anywhere, just some light playing scratches. 9lbs 2 oz. on bathroom scale. OHSC included. So if you are one of those jazz guys that like P necks, this one is for you. 950.00 you pay actual shipping.

    Third up is also a unique beast. It's a 62 AVRI P bass body with a 1977 Maple board fretless neck. Neck serial is S861783 and body is V159959. It hurts to let this one go but I'm going down to one fretless 4 string. Theis body has a few small paint chips and some light scratches. Nothing major. One dimple on the top. I just put a new set of rounds on it as I just can't get use to flats. The neck does have a nick out of the edge on the top. It's small and I've never felt it when playing as it's on the top edge. The bottom edge does have a little play wear on it typical of this vintage. The board is nice and smooth. Fretless sound for days on this one. Ships in a SKB case. 8lbs. 4 oz $1000.00 and you cover actual shipping.

    Fifth up was listed before. It's a brand new never played on 2010 blizzard pearl American Standard P bass with the most beautiful rosewood fretless neck. This neck is from a 1977 P bass and is flawless. In fact the entire bass is flawless. I'm going $850 and you pay the shipping. 8 lbs. 4 oz. SKB case.

    SOLD*****Sixth is a franken P. Listed before it is a 1983 American P bass body with a 2009 flawless US Highway one neck. My first experience with these necks and they are really nice. Black and white. Body has lots of scratches on the back. Ships with no case. $550.00 you pay the shipping. 8lbs. 6 oz.

    Only looking for a Modulus Q4 or Modulus p/j 4 as a possible trade.

    Wow, I still think the Alembic Distillate is one of the BEST all time body shapes for form and function. Not only does it look cool, but it is designed for sustain.
    Good Luck With The Sale (GLWTS) !
