    I was watching Return to Forever: Returns - Live at Montreux 2008 last night and of course Stanley, Chick, Al and Lenny were (as expected) in top form! But now I find myself gassing for an Alembic! Would love to have a Spoiler and a Brown bass but alas my GAS fund is a bit low at the moment. So, being the masochist that I am, if you own one of these beautiful basses (or any model Alembic) please post up some pics!

    Alembic GAS and low funds are pretty much mutually exclusive.

    I think that's an MK with a cocobolo top...of course mine will have a black ebony top and back, or maybe a macassar with a nice whispy grain pattern...yeah, that's it....oh and a J-width neck.

    It's been awhile since I've posted this guy. Definitely qualifies (it has the signature electronics). ;)
