FS: 1994 Alembic Epic 4 with Curly Maple top

Discussion in 'For Sale: Bass Guitars' started by calmb4tehpwn, Oct 22, 2012.

  1. Hey, folks!

    I'm selling my '94 Epic 4 today. I've owned it now for a year and a half, and I believe I am the third owner.

    Specs off the Alembic site (great group up there, by the way. Very supportive)

    Scale length 34.00
    Set neck 3 maple
    Fingerboard ebony
    Nut width 1.625
    24th fret width 2.360
    Truss rods dual, body adjust dual
    Body material mahogany
    Body depth 1.750
    Finish high gloss polyester with satin neck
    Pickups MXY4
    Controls vol, pan, bass, treble
    Tailpiece solid brass, half-moon
    Machine heads Gold Alembic-Gotoh

    I don't trust my bathroom scale these days, and feel uncomfortable using it to even get a ballpark, lest I mislead somebody, but I'd say it's about a middling weight. Somewhere around 9.5-10 if I were to guess, and I'm sorry if I'm very wrong.

    She's a player. Made to be played, and has been played. There's minor finish dings in the back, buckle rash, some wear on the face, and dings in the headstock. Aside from that, there is not a single thing wrong with this bass. Sounds like she should (which is Amazing.) and I've never had issues with neckdive. She's one of the most comfortable basses I've worn, though not the lightest, and -the- most comfortable bass I've played. We all know the story, though, finances dictate. I've decided to downgrade, since I'm not currently in a band, and already have a bass lined up. Just need to move this one first.

    Comes with a hybrid hard/soft case. That's a case with a hard skeleton, and padding like a hardcase, but with soft canvas covering. The case is a little worse for wear, but still functions perfectly. Not exactly an ugly sight, but clearly not brand new. Spent a couple long trips in the back of my truck.

    So, I'm asking $1300 shipped obo on this bad boy. Not interested in trades, but feel free to send the offers. You might just knock me off my feet.

    Paypal preferred, but money order accepted. Local deals encouraged as well, Willing to drive as far north as Washington DC, and as far south as North Carolina. I'm in VA, on the coast, so give me a shout if you want to give her a run. Got a new baby in the house, so my house is a disaster, but I could bring the beauty over to play through your rig.

    Shoot me a PM! I'm looking forward to hearing from you!

    that's a really great looking bass. I've always loved the Orion and Europa shapes most but something about the flame top on that one really works with the epic shape.
  7. Thanks! Personally, the Epic has always been my favorite, and yeah, this particular flame really is outstanding. The pictures just don't do it justice.
  8. Price drop to 1300!! Eager to sell!
  9. Bump.
  10. Another bump!
  11. Price drop to 1250!
  12. No interest?
  13. Would really like to see this baby find its new home. Shoot me an offer.
  14. Still available.

    Wow that's a great price for an Alembic. I know it's the bottom of their line but it's still a very nice bass.
  16. Alembic's bottom line is better than half other companies pro line. This truly is an amazing guitar, just trying to get back on my feet financially.
  17. Price drop again! 1200!!
