    Those are some nice, nice looking basses. I love looking at Alembics but for some reason never clicked with the few I've tried. Too bad, I'd actually love to have one someday.

    What do you have and how do you use them? Currently I have a 4 string Series I with Omega cut-out. I don't really use it that much. Ocassionally as a back up, but mostly just bangin' around at home. I also have a 5 string Mark King Deluxe with Series II electronics that is pretty much the main bass in my stable of 5 basses. I do a little bit of church praise group, a little bit of '70s - '80s funk.

    I used to have:
    • a 1983 birdseye maple Spoiler
    • a 1987 Stanley Clarke Deluxe
    • a 1974 Series I short scale
    • a 1979 Series II small body 32" scale
