    The guy should be giving it you for a discount in exchange for you teaching him how to string a bass properly :scowl:

    But, yeah that looks sweet. I love the understated look of lacewood. Congrats, I hope exceeds your expectations!!

    I see that a lot for some reasons. I guess it's not obvious what the hole in the middle of the split peg is for. Pretty bass tho! To be honest from the title I thought it was going to have an explorer shape.

    Would you hate me if I said that I like the back of it better than the front :meh: ?

    :( Yeah, I thought so!


    That's a great bass! Are those "Fat Boy" h/b pickups btw, or just the regular single coil ones?

    Is that nut made out of bone? It doesn't really look like brass to me.

    That's brass.
    Hit the nut and bridge with some good metal polish before you take your pictures.
    Nice bass, good luck with the 34" scale on a Series.

    I'd agree that the back is prettier than the top, but there isn't anything to obscure its beauty there, at least...:meh:

    The pickups are single coil.

    I will be cleaning up the nut and bridge-they're pretty corroded at the moment. Some might say it "destroys the mojo," but it just looks nasty right now.

    My shoulders are going to love me for this...;)

    I bought my Series bass, Alembic #2001, this summer.
    You'll love the tones, you'll hate the weight.
    Mine is a 32" scale and I can't imagine adding 2 more inches.

    That's a great-looking bass-I love the way the neck lams are reversed.

    I've got pretty long arms, so I'm not worried about the reach (it wasn't an issue on the one I tested), but the weight might be problematic.

    Nothing a good strap can't fix, though...:D

    I've owned 3 Alembics in the past. You'll love the bass and enjoy the Alembic forum too. Good people there! VERY brand loyal but not jerks about it!!

    I've noted that in my short time there-they seem pretty open to the idea of other brands of instruments, which is fitting, considering the company's beginnings.

    The money arrived safely-now it's only a matter of time.

    enjoy it- I know it's been a long time coming and that you've done your research...

    Play it in good health~

    You call that pointy? That ain't pointy. This is pointy!

    Alright-after some issues getting the payment to clear, the bass will be shipping out tomorrow, and should arrive...early next week. :rolleyes:

    The seller's including a Reunion Blues gig bag, so I won't have to buy another case for it. :cool: Hauling around an Anvil case was not exactly my idea of fun.
