In November I'm planning on getting "my" bass, my main bass, I am a collector, and a fan of Les Claypools. Now I don't want Les' bass but I've heard of the famous Carl Thompson and how he handcrafts his basses (for Les). I was looking for a nice 6 string fretless either by Carl Thompson or an Alembic but I haven't been able to decypher which I'd rather have. I know the price range for an Alembic, but the Carl Thompson is something I can't get a price list for. Any help???
