gotta go Mothman on this
Nice job, that body looks like it was hand rubbed for a year.
You sure it's the bass?
No denying it’s a great bass. It’s just that jazz basses are my thing. But when I need what that Pbass with flats , I reach for this one. That’s why it’s a keeper . I’ve owned 7 of these . Finally learned my lesson and quit selling them once priced started really climbing and they became harder to come by.
Yeah like the one on reverb for 700!!
The body is LeCompte. Electronics are Nordstrand. The neck was built and electronics installed by our very own @rojo412 (The original neck got a twist in it.) It's an all passive beast.
And thank you. It's a pretty cool piece. This thread has inspired me to do more than just look at it.
I'm not a fan of natural finishes or gold hardware.... but it balances perfectly and the neck is so easy to get around. I may do a trans-black finish to it one day.
Hardly play ... as an 8-string, there is a time and place. Also, this is a John Entwistle, 8-string, and original prototype before Status Buzzard. Love to look at ... it is a Status and is gorgeous, great to play and was in heavy use a with band.
Alembic? Beauty. Crazy saddle.
Yes it’s an Alembic .
Look left...I don't play that one at ALL, yet...
Just new strings wouldn't brighten enough? (Some don't, I do get that.)
