    Willing to consider a partial trade..US Jazz, Japanese Geddy, US P-Bass plus.....Need at least 1000 cash depending on trade.

    Still Available! Just back from a complete setup at local boutique. Plays like butter with medium low action and rings like a piano with new Rotosound rounds.

    I am reluctantly selling my beloved Alembic. I am not playing much and decided to keep the irreplaceable Bullshark and part with this incredible bass. 1991 Essence. Totally stock except I had master luthier Ron Blake replace the impossible to read brass dots with pearl. Much improved! 34" scale, mahogany body with gorgeous maple, thick slab of ebony fretboard. Simple yet elegant electronics with alembics signature filter.

    In great shape for a 26 year old bass. One small gouge on the back pictured. Frets are great. Weighs under 9lbs. Shipped in a cheap but sturdy case. Paypal preferred.
    1750.00 firm shipped east coast. Add +50 dollars for out west. IMG_0541.JPG alembic 1a.jpg

    I've played this bass and can attest for its awesomeness. Those fret markers were a great improvement. Good luck with the sale - someone's going to be very happy!

    I bought one of these new back in 1991. Kept it for 10 years. Never should have sold it. GLWTS
