    Hi all, with regret I am selling my Series 1 shortie. A combination of financial pressures plus the fact I haven't quite bonded with the bass as much as I had hoped.

    Its in amazing condition for a 1979 bass and has the most minor signs of use which require close examination to even spot. The DS-5 power supply has been converted to UK/European voltage which means - together with import duties etc - this is likely to be of greater interest to someone my side of the Atlantic. Comes with original hard case plus regular Series instrument lead and additional stereo-to-mono lead (for battery-powered use without power supply unit).

    History from Mica at Alembic:
    top: Walnut
    accent: none
    body: Mahogany
    back: Walnut
    neck: Maple and Purpleheart
    scale: 30.75" short
    fingerboard: Ebony
    peghead veneers: Walnut
    inlays: Mother of pearl
    pickups: SC1 and HX
    controls: "Series I" volume x2, filter x2, Q-switch x2, pickup selector switch, 5-pin and 1/4" stereo outputs
    originally made for: Private individual, San Francisco, CA
    birthday: November 27, 1979

    I can send lots of pics if anyone is genuinely interested. There are also archived pics on Reverb (from which I bought the bass this summer) Alembic Short scale bass series 1 1979 Burl Walnut | Owner

    I am looking for £4500 delivered within the UK (can be collected from London), or €5,000 delivered to mainland Europe.
