I have an Alembic Excel 5-string that I am looking to trade for a 4-string bass. The perfect trade would be another Alembic because I love the articulate and punchy tone of these basses but I would look at other high end 4-string basses also. The bass is a 1998 model and it's in great shape. The only reason I am looking for a possible trade is because the 5-string neck is killing the arthritis in my left hand. Thanks for looking!
