Check that out.
it aint exactly 10 outta 10 in the looks department but anything has gotta be better that what i have at the moment
I personally cant get excited about any Alembic. I've tried a couple, and find them very
clanky". And that headstock........
It´s not Alembic. It´s Bass Nw. Their pics always look ugly...
I guess I wasn't used to seeing a sunburst Alembic Is that yours?
the bass is from the Alembic Website.
I´m not sure if its the exact same bass or just the same color...
for me that's an ugly bass in both pics.
I don't think the burst is particularly well done; it fades to black too quickly. There's another Excel (natural flamed maple) on bassnw that looks great.
Beauty is in the eye, I guess....
I like that one over most Alembics. But then, what do I know?
Well Jon, you know what you like!! That's pretty darned important!
I agree with Pacman... not great, but its better then those other "things" Alembic makes...
Really?...Hmmm...Actually it's true. Beauty is really hard to judge. Well to make it simpler, why not we post our girlfriend's pic. That way we know who has bad taste, and who knows what is beautiful
well, I would...but if my wife got wind of it....
I like that bass, in either of the pictures. I love sunbirst, and that one seems to catch my eye. Maybe I am just weird (or colorblind).
Looks fine to me, cosmetically. Not $2200's fine, but okay. Like Christopher mentioned, that transition from the black border to the sunburst is about as artful as a train wreck, but the flame top is nice.
Someone else may not like a sunburst where the colors gradually shift into the next, like I do. But if everyone was like me, Reverend, Vaccaro, and the like would be out of business, and they're certainly not.
why is there only one pickup?
Because Music Man basses are very popular.
I don't think it looks that bad.
I actually like that bass more than other Alembics.
ugliest Alembic IMHO has got to be the Epic- that shape- bleurgh.......
only 2,200 is alembic trying to move down market or something? i happen to like their triple omega body shape and some of the other things they do but an alembic with a "sunburst" (if that's what you want to call it) just doesn't seem right to me.
Don't really matter what it looks like to the majority...it only takes one buyer, don't it?
