    As you guys should know by now, I'm not a HUGE fan of most Alembic body styles, but this one, along with the burst just makes me DROOL!

    It's their new shape, the Balance K, and it's their monthly featured bass. Check out more: http://www.alembic.com/info/featured_custom.html

    Wow! an Alembic shape that's "just right"
    I've always had some gripe with every shape they've had until now. And that wine burst finish looks awesome.

    Thats quite a fine bass.

    The burst makes it looks like the sun behind some clouds.

    The balance K shape is nice, not my fave Alembic style, but nice nonetheless. The burst though makes it ugly as {insert appropriate expletive}

    I am not a fan of those omega bottom Alembics, but dang, that is one beautifully finished bass! It needs to be in a museum and just looked at instead being played where it could get scratched. Not really, I believe basses are for playing even if they do get worn through use.
     
  12. What is with those vile control knobs?! They could use gold knobs on a bass like that.

    Yeah, I agree. Gold knobs aren't that great.

    Wait, when did Alembic discover the modern miracle that is paint and high-gloss finishing? :D

    By far the best looking Alembic I've seen.
