    I don't want to spoil the party, but I like sober designs... Sorry, I don't like how this bass looks at all. But I'm sure it's a great instrument.

    It's a bit Baroque for my taste. ... maybe as a coffee table ...

    Remind me not to play that one sitting down. I wouldn't want anything important getting caught.

    If I'd had the jing, I'd have bought that bass in a second. I love the top, I love the shape, and I love the Alembic tone.
