Alembic Explorer Bass

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by DonnieCastleman, Jun 19, 2001.


  1. Anyone know of an existing Alembic Explorer Bass in the world, besides the ones that John Entwistle owns? When I make my first million as a jazz accordionist I want to get Alembic or Warrior to make one for me, just like John's, I scoured the net and they don't seem to exist anymore, any thoughts, comments? thanks.
     
  2. They had a killer Explorer Alembic at Guitar Center in El Cerrito California a while back. It was one of the most beautiful instruments I've ever seen. It had a great figured maple top.

    Well, despite the fact that you may not have found one on the net, if you contact Alembic, they can build one exactly like John's for you:D Heck...they probably still have all the blueprints!

    If you get big enough in your desire, Alembic will make ANYTHING for you;) It's just a matter of dollars and patience.
