This is Fender's early-90's answer to Alembic, Modulus, Wal, etc. These were made in Fender's Japan facility, and listed for around $1700 at that time. This is probably the cleanest and fanciest one you will find used anywhere, ever. Features: -2 active oversized J pickups with Alembic/Wal style notch filter electronics. A switch turns the active filter off so that the tone control is just a regular passive treble roll-off. This is just like the Alembic Spoiler system. In passive-tone mode, the bass goes from super-bright to super- fat. Then with the filter on, you've got an insane array of '70's-style notched-wah sounds. -5-piece maple/purpleheart neck-thru, with graphite reinforcement in the neck and peghead. -flamey maple top. -OHSC. This is a great-sounding, astoundingly Alembic-like bass with an amazing skinny J-style neck for dirt cheap! No trades. . .
