    This thing is super cool, Alembic Essence 1991 4 String Bass, few minor bumps and blemishes but great condition for a 26 year old bass. Pretty light weight and small body, it plays and sounds as it should with great action and the alembic electronics. Currently setup with Alembic strings as well.

    Specs:
    34” Scale
    Maple Body and Neck (Light Flames)
    Neck through construction
    Fingerboard: Blank Ebony
    Alembic Pickups & Electronics

    Check out the specs here:
    Alembic - Essence Bass

    Looking for $1800 + shipping. Paypal preferred.

    Cash preferred but open to hearing trades or trades + cash, mostly interested in hollowbody or musicman caprice or Cutlass.

  5. Just curious if you know if these are Schaller tuners. I have the same unbranded ones on my 94 Pensa Suhr jazz. Thanks . Beautiful Alembic.

    This bass has Gotoh tuners, they changed the "standard" from Schaller to Gotoh in the late eighties. ('89 I think)
    First they used the standard GB7, later the version with the Alembic "A" on it.

  7. Thanks for replying . I'm guessing mine are Gotoh as well.

    My assessment of these basses (IMVHO) is that they are almost perfect for me.
    The sound, the feel...
    Unfortunately, I cannot use one right now.

    Bought one of these in 1992. Kept it for 10 years and sold it. Dumb move. Great bass!
