    Hi, anyone know anything about these basses? I found one from 1980's for $2500 US. Do these sound similar to Alembics. Or more like Carl Thompson stuff. Any other info would be appreciated.

    Yes I know about that site, but I was looking to hear from people who might have owned one or at least played one.

    Very nice basses, that’s the one Bob has from Bass Palace.
    I wouldn't say they are the easiest playing basses, but not bad. They have a rounder neck feel on average, but usually are very beautiful instruments. This one has been dinked with having a smith preamp and what is probably changed pickups.

    Might sound great and might not, but a very cool bass.
