    Some of you may remember the thread dealing with the damaged Alembic custom 5 string that was up for bid on eBay. Well, Alembic is posting step by step the making of the replacement for that bass. Here's the link to the first series of pics:

    For those who like to flip to the last page of the novel, here's what it will look like (the pre-damage original).

    The original was born with frets and was damaged upon it's return from being defretted. I think the replacement will be built fretless.


    Peace,
