    I put down the last 800$ on my Alembic series 1 today! It should be coming next week! I'm so excited!

    It's a 1980 Alembic Series 1 34" scale with walnut top and uhh.. I forget the body.

    Here are some pics again

    How does it feel to know the first Terminator didn't even come out until four years AFTER your bass was made? :D

    Did you get to play your Alembic before you ordered it?

    Will it be that heavy?
    Will it be so cold and sterile?
    Will it go with a shotgun through the audience hunting for Axl Rose?

    With that "microchip of mega-doom", you will be invincible :D
