I have a beautiful Alembic Essence 5 for trade or sale asking $2400. Maple body with walnut stripe inlays Flame maple top Brass nut and Bridge Ebony Fingerboard Alembic pickups and 9v active electronics strung with Ken Smith Slick Rounds 34" scale 1.875" nut some very minor dings and wear with the most notable finish ding being on the front, above the lower horn. and some tarnishing on the bridge, but that should polish off easily. but all in all its in extremely excellent condition for a 21 year old bass. bass comes with an older used tobias padded gig bag. not the prettiest but will protect it just fine.
