    I made the third out of four payments, and I started to listening to Stanley Clarke. I then opened up some of the pictures of my Alembic that is almost mine :-D. I thought I'd share with you guys.


    Here she is :-D. I can't wait!!!

    It's a 1980 Series 1.

    Nice! We can now count you among the jaded. You got it at a pretty decent price, too. The used ones have been going up since Alembic's price increase.

    I'm assuming you get the power supply and cord with that too, eh?

    Does it have side LEDs? If so, you REALLY got a bargain. What's the white patch on the back of the headstock?

    It was even better considering it's 3250.. SHIPPED :-D.. with a flightcase and power supply. No LEDs though, but I never liked'em anyhow.

    ... I don't know what that white thing is. Maybe it's some super awesome microchip of mega-doom or something.

    Sweet. What are the build details on her?

    I also own an '80 Series 1.
  15. ahhh, I would venture a guess that the white thing on it is the price tag... ;)

    I don't know :p.
  17. Mine's nicer. :D
    When she arrives, mosey on over to the Alembic discussion forum, post the SN and ask Mica or Val to post the build records.
    Kidding aside, that's a nice-looking bass you've got there. Medium scale, I assume?
