SALE PENDINGI’m not playing this fretless Alembic Essence often enough, so I’m offering it for sale. Made in 2004, I’m the second owner of this beauty with walnut top, mahogany body, maple-walnut neck, ebony unlined board (with side dots) and original hard case. Although the case shows wear and the middle latch doesn’t close, it serves its purpose. The bass is currently strung with flats, but earlier in its life it had half-rounds on and there are some wear marks on the board. There is some corrosion on the hardware, but everything works just fine. As can be seen in the pics, a cap is missing on one of the tuners (doesn’t affect the bass, just cosmetic). To replace this, Alembic told me I’d need to purchase the complete tuner, so I passed. Anyway, this is a great sounding example of Alembic’s high quality instruments. Weighs about 9 lbs. – can get a precise weight if someone needs it. I just don’t have a good scale. Smoke-free, pet-free home. Will sell and ship in the CONUS, insured, for $1,625. No trades, please.
