    I can appreciate Alembics, but I only really ever lusted after one of Alembics Entwistle Spyders...

    Ahhh... I love Alembic!
    many moons ago, I used to own a Beautiful Alembic Brown bass (only bass Im really sorry that I dont have right now), and I also owned an Excel 5 string, nothing like the Brown Bass (chunky neck) but great tone.

    I'd take that deal. Sounds like an OK trade. How much wear does your soul have?

    The other two screws are recessed. You don't generally wanna mess with those.
