    Really? Every Epic I've seen or played has been 34". Didn't know there were any 35" Epics... Is this a custom 35"?

    (Not trying to be a smart-ass, but I love all things Alembic [Epics are awesome, btw] And it goes to show you that Alembic lives up to their motto "Beyond Custom")

    Gosh, I can remember when these were all over. Haven't seen too many lately. I played my instructors Epic in 1999, fell in love and bought an Essence. Great working basses. I wish I had reason to buy it; that's a very attractive price. Good luck.
