Up for sale is my Alembic Essence 4-string. I am the original owner. It is from the early 1990s (I believe 1991). It is in excellent original condition. The only thing I changed was adding Schaller strap locks. I have the original strap buttons somewhere, but I can't find them right now. If they turn up, I'll include them with the sale. I just sent the bass to my local luthier (who is a certified Alembic luthier) to be shined up and checked out. Everything works perfect, brand new strings. There is the typical belt scratches in the finish on the back - I tried to show it in the photos. Beautiful Maple top. Very light weight, maybe 8.5lbs if that?? The bass will ship with a crappy, falling apart Warwick gig bag. It will most likely ship from MTD Basses (the folks at Michael Tobias Designs are near me and are friends, I'll have it boxed and shipped there). Price is $1950 + shipping. I'm in Southern California. You can also pick up, or I can meet at a reasonable distance. Please let me know if you have any questions.
