I really love my alembic, I just haven't been playing it much. The tone is great, but I've just been using my lakland a lot more. Here's a picture. It's a 1980 Alembic series 1. Mahogany body. 5 piece maple/purpleheart neck Vermillion top, back, and headstock veneers. 34" scale, standard point body shape. I bought this from Benjamin Strange and Haight Ashbury music last year. I fixed it up a little bit and used it on some gigs, but it doesn't suit my needs taht much for jazz. Electronically it's in amazing condition. Everything works flawlessly. Physically it has the usual wear and tear, but overall It's in 8-8.5/10 in condition. Has a few dings in the back from the previous owner, and a minor little headstock ding or two.. but other than that it's great! It's setup how I like it. Med-low action, roundwounds. The bass sounds great, looks great, and plays great. The only reason I'm considering selling it is because I'd really like a high end 5er that suits my tonal needs more. This is a great rock bass, many rock greats used series I/II's in the past (Entwistle, JPJ, Stanley etc...). PM me with questions or offers or anything. Right now here are my rates: $3200+shipping or best offer comes with flightcase and power supply cable (no power supply) I am open to trades, and am very flexible.
