    I am going to be posting a lot of my basses for sale in order to purchase a new motor for my truck. I appreciate you taking a few minutes to take a look at my postings and hope that one of them is what you are looking for.

    Here is my Alembic Essence 5 string bass. The walnut top is one of the most beautiful I have ever seen. I really don't think that the pictures do this bass justice. In addition it has a matching headstock on both front and back. The wings are mahogany with a beautiful and perfectly straight maple neck. The bass definitely has some weight to it (like most Alembics), however, it doesn't feel "heavy" to me at all. Has a few cymbal dings on the tip of the head stock, but nothing major. You can barely see them in the photos.

    From Alembic about this bass:
    "The heart of the Essence's tone is the Alembic low-pass filter, the same tone control we pioneered in 1969 when we first introduced active electronics to the musical world. With this tone control, a range of sounds from deep to bright are available with a simple twist of one knob."

    I need to get $2500 for the bass shipped to the CONUS only. Paypal OK, but prefer Dwolla.

    Please - no trade offers, I beg you!
