after reading all the positive things about these beautiful alembic styled basses in the forums, i gave in and bought one. its a year 2000 (or so the seller claims, i didnt know they were still available in the us for that year) and i got it for $525. it hasnt arrived yet, it will sometime next week (ill post a review and more pics). it appears mint except for the trussrod cover is missing, if anyone sees one let me know, i think i might just make one for it. if you have the same model, post pics of it in this forum! share likes/dislikes/info about your basses, im trying to learn as much about this beauty as possible. specs are on the site (i forgot the link) thanks guys! let me know what ya think!
