**SOLD** to a fellow TBer! If you ever wanted to own an Alembic, but did not want to take out a second mortgage! Here is your chance! I am putting up for sale my beloved Alembic Distillate 5-String. Here is a bit of background. I had it built for me in 1990 while I was on the road. So I am the only owner of this instrument. It features a beautiful Colo Bolo top (considered a premium upgrade) and side red LED's in the neck. They still blow my mind when I plug it in! I have cared for this bass like it was a child, there is not one scratch on this baby. Not bad for a 16 year old bass. It was always transported in a Calzone flight case, which is included. The frets are in great shape. They were slightly touched up by a guitar builder in NY (don't remember his name) about 4 years ago. Overall condition I would say is 9.5 out of 10. I have the original build sheet (from Alembic) which will be with the bass. The sound, well it is an Alembic. Nothing sounds like it. It has the clearest highs and deepest lows. And it is hands down the best bass I have ever recorded with! Why am I selling this baby?? Well I mainly play 4-string basses these days and it does not get allot of use. So I figured I sell it and put the funds toward a custom 4-banger. So before I put it on eBay, I figured I give you guys and gals a chance. You can own this baby for $2100 + shipping (US only please). Price includes the Calzone Flight case.
