    Hey all,

    First time I have "cleared the herd". Getting rid of some basses & effects. This is a 1999 Alembic Essence Custom 4-string bass, having Europa electronics (with the Q-switch). It plays great with a wide tone range.

    Details from Mica @ Alembic:
    - Top: Bocate
    - Accent: Maple pinstripe
    - Body: Mahogany
    - Through body neck: 3-piece Maple with Walnut pinstripes
    - 34" long scale
    - Fingerboard: Ebony
    - Pickups: MXY4
    - Controls: volume, pan, filter, 2-position Q-switch, bass
    cut/flat/boost switch, treble cut/flate/boost switch,
    mono output
    - Birthday: November 23, 1999

    It has side markers (not LED). Included are matching Bocate knobs by THG Knobs (as well as the originals), as well as an original Alembic strap. I had the jack replaced with original part ordered from Alembic.

    There is no case included. I keep it in a new Mono M80 gig bag and would include that for an additional $150.

    Asking $2350 ($2500 with the new Mono bag). Feel free to PM me with offers and to talk about shipping.

    PMs answered. Would prefer to sell but I guess I'd entertain offers for USA J, P or PJ 4-string boutique basses. Paypal accepted.

    This bass weighs in right at 10 lb on my postal scale.

    Thanks!

    Bump for a great guy and TBer that takes excellent care of his gear. I have played this bass (and most, if not all of his :hyper:) and it's in great shape. Nice pictures too, I can't remember sellers on Talkbass posting pics of the control cavity but it makes sense.

    Best of luck with the sale.
