Hello there! I'm going to spend ALL my money to get an Alembic bass. It's a medium-scale double-omega shaped body. For the same price ($2,500.00) I could get a Stanley Clarke Signature (both are used!). I wanted to know: if the bass is in mint conditions, is it a good price? I've noticed that the neck pickup is near to the fretboard... is it a trouble for slap? Let me know, every help, council and info is appreciated. To see the bass I want go to http://www.bassexchange.com and visit the USED link!
