    If you’re looking at this post, you probably know that these rarely come up for sale.

    It’s time to move this fine instrument along to someone who will play it more than I do. Too many basses, not enough time.

    1978 Alembic Series 2
    Small Standard body
    Rosewood top and back laminates
    Zebra wood accent edging
    MEDIUM scale 32” (not many of these out there)
    7-piece neck
    Refretted by Philtone a few years ago
    Weighs approximately 12 lbs.
    Comes with newer power supply and grey 5-pin cable; both in excellent shape
    Includes very light-duty soft case in which I received the bass.

    The sound is as magnificent as you would expect.

    It’s no closet queen; this bass has been played. It’s got dings. I’ve never experienced noise issues; this bass should not need the electronics upgrade. I would rate it to be in very good condition.

    I prefer a cash sale, but can entertain cash plus trade involving these items:

    Sadowsky 4 or 5 strings 9lbs or under
    Alembics under 9 lbs.
    German Hofner basses
    Ampeg SVT or V4 heads
    Vintage Fender tube amps
    Fender custom shop basses
    Gibson guitars

    Will not ship. Looking for a buyer in the MD/DC/VA/DE/PA area. Willing to drive a little to meet buyer.

    Come and get it! Thanks for looking!

    Sweet bass. Curious about the serial number. I own 78-1172 which is a medium scale rosewood Series I five-string. Guessing yours was made around the same time. GLWTS...

    What's the finish on this bass ?
    Gloss , oil, urethane matte ?

    Nice bass !

    I would call it a poly finish (I think). It's not glossy like a modern-day Alembic, but it's not an oil finish.
