    This has been my main bass for the past few months, but I've decided to go graphite for all my basses. Since I'm in the process of buying a Zon, I have to sell this one. It is in excellent condition with minor player wear. Here are the specs:

    Mahogany body with maple accent and a bookmatched walnut top and matching headstock veneer.
    Three piece maple neck with walnut accent strips.
    Single coil hum cancelling pickups.
    Active electronics with volume,pan, bass and treble.
    Brass two-piece bridge and adjustable brass nut.
    Ebony fingerboard with 24 frets.

    The bass will come with a gig bag and strap, and it has Thomastik power bass strings on it right now.

    I am asking $850 plus shipping.


    I'll post pictures tonight. You can send me your email address too and I will send you a complete set of pictures.

    A $3,700.00 bass for $850.00, yeah, I guess that would go fast.

    My first guess is they have all had input to this thread ;)

    My second guess is that the number has doubled since last week

    My third guess is that the number will definitely continue to increase.

    I have a chance of a mint Alembic Essence 4 string.

    What kinda money do y'all think this model should be.

    The Alembic website lists them at over $4000 new :eek:

    ......but what's a 10 yr old mint example worth?

    .....also, anyone got any general comments on this model.....tones,playability etc

    Cheers Oz

    I have an Essence and it is slammin'. It is my main four banger. Light, great neck, killer electronics. What's it worth? I would not sell mine. I don't think I could replace it with anything better. What would I buy?
