    For sale is a 2018 short-scale (30.75 inch) Alembic Stanley Clarke Brown Bass in excellent working condition. It has a one-quarter inch chip on the lower bout below the control knobs and a small linear dent by the first fret.
    The body is a laminate of walnut front and back with a myrtle core. Back plates are continuous wood. Neck (1.5 inch wide at nut) is mahogany, birch and walnut. Weight is 8 lbs 13 oz (4.0 kg).
    Finish is oil, and I have not treated it with anything but a damp cloth to wipe off dust and sweat. Fingerboard is ebony with abalone inlays.
    Electronics include violet LED fret markers, on/off switch for those, 2 volume, 2 filters, rotary pickup selector, 2 Q switches, and a mono/stereo switch. The LEDs run on a separate 9-volt battery (4) circuit from the preamp.
    The standard pickups for Brown Basses are Alembic FatBoy, but no pickup is specified on the build sheet.
    This bass plays effortlessly and has a wide variety of tonal options, including a very deep low end.
    I would consider a partial trade for a good 4-string, fretted jazz bass (passive preferred).
