    Ok, so I just purchased this bass from Ho and I realize I'm a Alembic guy.....Ho warned me saying if my heart is not in it and I really want an Alembic, don't buy the Spector!

    So, long story short I just want an Essence...that's it...no mystery or anything.

    Please PM me and we'll discuss trades. I will consider Epics and certain CS Jazz basses too.

    I guess I would sell it outright too and search for an Alembic on my own. ($2100 OBO)

    P.S. I did buy a brand new Spector hard shell case Friday so at least you get that too!

    Ho, you were right man, I love Spectors, but I love Alembics more I guess!

    Thanks I appreciate that. I just don't think I'm going to have much luck trading this bass. Alembics don't leave owners too often.

    You might want to try changing the thread to a FS/FT ad, it'll probably get more traffic that way too

    do you have an alembic now ? l have an epic and it is a great bass, l at one time was going to move up to a essence but the sonic difference was not worth the money. don't sell the epic short built like a tank, and huge tone. the rouge is solid too.
