    Friday bump: Price reduced, going, going . . . . . . . .

    For sale is a beautiful 1998 Alembic Rogue 4 string. I am the second owner (was basically unplayed when I bought it). Beautiful basket weave maple top, 34", action low, frets in good shape, mahogany back, beautiful wood match as is expected in Alembic. Comes with factory hard case and original Alembic paperwork

    I have to let this go as I am now 61 in a Traditional Western band, and my manager won't let this one on stage. As such, I'm interested in a Sadowsky Metro P/J hybrid 4 string, or with some additional funds any Sadowsky NYC P/J. If you go to the web page www.moonstruckcoyotes.net you will understand my dilemna

    This bass nails the Entwistle tone, and with the Q switch and quick tone switches is very versatile. Prices have gone through the roof with a long wait at Alembic, this might be your chance to get one

    There is some finger rash (hard to see on photo) near the front pickup, and the front pickup Alembic decal is faded (finger style player), otherwise no issues and a beautifully playing bass

    Trust me, I am struggling with this, and will keep it just so I can
    play along to "The Kids are Alright" if necessary and for a blues project in the near future, but I am open to discussion

    Please, will only consider a Sadowsky bass in trade with P/J or just P

    Update: Will also consider a sale, $[DEL]2100 [/DEL][DEL]$2000[/DEL] [DEL]$1950[/DEL] FINAL PRICE $1900, low as I will go, if no sale I WILL KEEP THE BASS (cont USA only, USPS money order or cert check, will accept Paypal)

    Thanks!!!

    I sold my Alembic Rogue 10 years ago and have regretted it ever since! I'd say "hold on to the bass"...you'll regret letting it go. Wish I had a bass you'd want to trade it for!

    Awesome price! These are great basses...I had a 5 string a few years ago. And I sold it for A LOT more than this. So, someone is going to get a great deal on this one.

    OH, and btw...tell your manager to kiss off. IMO, the Alembic tone would work very well in a country band. So, what if it does not look like a Fender. Some people....

    Too bad as I have a ton of great gear for trade, just no Sadowsky. Enjoy a free bump!

    FINAL PRICE $1900, I'll let this go through the weekend, and if no sale will keep this beauty and string it up with some nice DR Highbeams for my holiday gigs. Heck with the manager

    Dang. I would hit it up if I weren't in more of a selling mode. Further proof that the great deals are there when you're not allowed to buy more gear.
