    So I had the bass posted a while back..had to open a new ad, because I couldn't edit the old one. :D

    PRICE DROP! This is a beautiful 1991 Alembic Essence bass in Oceanburst. The specs are as follows:


    34" scale length

    NECK
    3 Piece maple neck with walnut stringers
    Ebony Fretboard
    1 5/8" at the nut (1.625)
    Adjustable Nut
    Dual truss rods
    12" radius

    BODY
    Maple Back/Mohagany Center/Flamed Maple Top w/ Walnut stringers
    refinished at Alembic in 2002 in Oceanburst

    ELECTRONICS

    2MXY pickups volume-pan-filter/tone with Q switch
    and adjustable preamp.

    The bass was sent back to Alembic in 2002 to be refinished and have the "Q" switch installed, which already extends the tonal palette of this fantastic playing bass. All receipts showing the work are included.

    I dislike using the word "mint" for any used bass, but this one comes as close to that as I will allow. It's simply gorgeous. Comes with a fitted factory 2002 G&G hardshell case.

    Alembic is truly a cut above other bass makers, and now I can see why. This thing is like a time capsule! I have not given it the attention it deserves, so it's time to move it along.

    1950.00 shipped in the CONUS. I don't mind shipping internationally, but understand it might be a little more...contact me.

    Comes with all receipts and warranties, and tools. PM or post any questions.

    I saw one this color years ago that had a AAAAA quilt top and when you looked at if from different angles it almost looked waves breaking on a Hawaiian beach. I love that color.

    Thanks!...the color on this is so rich and deep, its a shame I can't capture it with my poor photography skills.

    As for waves crashing on a Hawaiin beach...oh man, how I wish I was there on day like this in NYC when the temps are single digits (wind chill putting us at -12)...
