Johnny Long reviews a vintage series I
My Essence 5 is called "The Beast" when I play it through my Marshall 400 VBA+VBC 4x12 cab in my band because of the power, clarity and air forwarded to the frontline. You can see their pants move.
I use SIT Nickel strings .050" - .130" and they mate very well with this bass and are cheap to boot, usually under $25 a set on ebay. They do stay in tune and last a very long time usually changed out when wear is notable on the windings as they still ring clearly and have even tone and volume across the fret board.
+1. I'm a big fan of SIT Nickels. Great bang for the buck. I echo Aussie Player and like them on a few of my basses. They really sing out on my MK Std.
I foresee a hot summer
Looking that way, yes......
Something wicked this way comes.
I'm seeing some serious progress on the Custom Europa SII @FC Bass, but I'm confused about that assembly on top of the bridge block... whassat about, man?
I've discussed it on a Dutch bass forum and concluded it is the new Hippie intonation way, or maybe a new light weight bridge...
I’m looking for an Alembic SF-2, if anyone has one they want to sell please let me know...thanks!
To me it looks like a normal bridge, they just haven’t finished assembling it yet.
FC, is that maple or ash wood?
The pic is taken during preset, they assemble and adjust all hardware before plating. This one will get Ruthenium plating:
Hardware for the Spoiler will be 24K Gold.
Body/top wood on both is Maple, with hollow bodywings.

Should be very nice (and light), FC.
Jazzyvee, thanks for the heads up on the SF-2, but that one is marked as sold. I’ll keep looking!
How are Ruth and Ium, these day?
The long life of those Optima Golds looks intriguing but the cost (with the concomitant "what if I like them less than my Pressurewounds?") makes them a no (or at least a "not-now") for me.
Ahh. Man, they think of everything. That's really looking 5 moves down there.
Sorry about that i didn’t notice the sold detail.
