    I just came back from the Alembic "Online Store" and I still cannot believe was I just read. Does a Stanley Clarke Deluxe really weight 12 pounds?

    (30.75 inchs scale and 4 strings, Sadowsky can built a 34 inchs 5 strings for under 8 pounds!)

    It looks that way. I dunno' what the characteristics are of "Vermilion".
    Is it denser and/or heavier than ebony?
    What is "Vermilion" anyways? Is that French for "ready-mix" ? :p

    Ya' know you can get almost 4, 7lb. Rob Allens for what they're askin' ($5750) :D

    It must be there way to help you keep your balance after a major weight loss to your wallet.
