    I do not know if this bass has ever been shown here, but I found it on Ed Roman's site, and thought it looked very cool. Bet it sounds amazing, and costs an arm and a leg to boot.

    You can see a lot more of that kinda stuff if you check out Alembic's monthly Featured Custom page. Here's the link:

    This concludes my shameless Alembic plug for this week. More to come, I'm sure. :D :D

    Peace,

  4. that's the most beautiful doubleneck i have ever seen (sorry JT). It's exactly what i need right now, a fretless 4 and an 8 string...

    Interesting thought. JT, I wonder of Bill Conklin would ever try and tackle building something like that if he was asked? I bet he could make one just as nice and it would not cost the same as a new truck, like that Alembic would.

    Alembic's should always be shamelessly plugged.

    definately funky. I would prefere an old fender, but it is still cool.
