Seen on the Alembic web site and and going to England...
that first one is as exciting to look at as a pair of pants filled with geckos, i love it
I don't want this image in my head!!! OUT! OUT!!!
Somebody laid down some serious dinero for those, probably play great though. Does Alembic charge for a Non-Alembic shape?
I like the wood on the second one. Reminds me of a Ken Smith. Very nice!
Will you people get over these Jazz basses? An Alembic Jazz is completely missing the point of both basses.
Au contraire! I think an Alembic jazz is the perfect icon for both companies!
I think the second one is SuperHot.
I got a chance to play one similar the other day, it was very nice.
There has to be some serious neck dive issues with them basses in the sitting position. They have they whole neck moved up for the access to the 24 frets. That puts the waist dang near even with the bridge.
Amongst folks that DON'T own an Alembic, there is no bigger a fan than myself. And, my favorite bass shape is the Jazz because it really fits me.
These combo's just aren't right. One should marry their own kind. You know - keep it in the same species OK?
LOL.. well put, Hammy. I have to agree, even though my Curbow is an example of this very premise -- a Jazz-style bass made by a high-end builder who doesn't ordinarily make Jazz-style basses. I've thought about what an Alembic J-style might look like, and now that I see one, it's not quite right. I saw a Warrior J-style once, and that didn't really work for me, either.
It's right as rain. I like 'em.
just add this headstock and yer set!
Those basses look wonderful to me. Considering the countless styles of basses that Alembic has produced over the years, I think it is funny that people are saying they should stick to what they are already doing.
Alembic does a decent amount of business selling pickups and electronics for P & J bass upgrades. Has been for years. Why not stick them into some pretty wood and make the complete product?
