    Part of me wants to keep her, but this is something that is meant to be played and shared, not collected and stored.
    I am glad to have owned her, but it is time.

    1998
    Red side LED's
    serial no# is 98SJ11850
    This is a mint bass with slight oxidation on the bridge only, and tiny smudge of the Alembic label on pickup, a tiny you have to really look hard for it smudge where the fingers rest next to the pick up.
    30.75" short neck
    Woods are flame maple face which changes in the light, mahogany back, maple neck and some serious love.

    4000$

    No trades, I simply do not need another bass if this one is not getting played as much as it should.


    Thank you, and may you be the lucky person who owns this.

    Hey, you got a gnarly Alembic as well!
    Well, even if no buyers can afford it these days, I always get to have it around, which, ain't 1/2 bad either.

    Till the lust can become $ for a buyer, it shall remain mine.
