    Here's the first shot of my new baby. It arrived Thursday and I spent the night Friday playing it. I defintely understand why bassists fall in love with Series II's.

    Band rehearsal Sunday, can't wait.

    That look like a real beauty, bones. Enjoy.
     
  5. congrats- it looks really nice :D
     
  6. That's straight dope. I like the symmetry of the Series I, but I think the II looks nicer with the slightly longer upper horn and the more angular design. Plus the Omega cut! I bet it sounds awesome.

    So what do the inlays look like and where are they located?
     
  7. Beautiful! Congrats.
     
  8. Dood!!

    I just got back from rehearsal and this bass is everything I've ever been looking for. I think bass G.A.S. has been cured (famous last words).

    A lot of them go used. A 13000 bass used might run 5000, or something like that. Alembics have a crappy resale price, wich is good for those that want an Alembic.
