    Maybe I just have G.A.S., or I just miss my MTD, but I'm throwing this one back out there.

    Absolutely beautiful Alembic Essence 5 in near mint condition. Will be shipped in a teardrop hardcase for safety, but it's just average condition.

    This Essence has the ovals, LEDs, and 7-piece neck. It's quite a stunning bass, and the neck is very comfortable. The spacing at the nut and the bridge is fantastic, too.

    Here's previous owner's thread: TRADED - Alembic Essence 5, purplewood top

    Trades: Looking for a 4-, 5-, or 6-string bass with mahogany body. I might consider some other non-mahogany MTDs, depending on tops and necks, so send me your specs.

    This Essence is a snowflake from many points of view.
    The purpleheart top is not available anymore on the Alembic builder and the headstock is Europa shaped.

    ...which is actually one of the more redundant statements one could possibly make, when you think about it.
