    How is $1200 for an Excel with a flame maple top and one pickup? I think it is new old stock. Seems to be in great condition, plays great with lotsa growl.


    Edit: oh yeah, its a 4 banger

    If it's NOS, depends on how much you like the bass. In other words, if this is a "keeper", go for it. If it's used, you can do better.

    I would recommend not paying more than about $1,000 for a used one, since they regularly come available at $1,000 or less. With NOS, particularly if it's a keeper, you should also get Alembic's warranty so that makes it worth a bit more.

    Hope that helps.
