it's an Alembic of some sort.
can't help you with the exact model but you can check on their site(www.alembic.com).
it could be a custom one of a kind made specifically for Jason so don't be surpprised to not find it there.
Looks like a custom job based on the Spoiler model.
Spoiler with Europa Electronics I believe..
Alembic Distillate with Series II electronics.
The body shape is the Distillate bass that Alembic discontinued several years ago.
The 5 pin cable that he's playing through identifies it as a Series I or Series II. After that you just count the knobs. If there's 7, it's a Series I. If there's 8, it's a Series II.
wow, i wonder what those electronics sound like...
It's not as overwhelming as it sounds, just a lot of flexibility to play with in contouring your sound.
Each pick up has a separate volume control and a separate low pass filter. There's 4 knobs.
Series I basses have a 3 position Q switch for each pick up. On Series II basses it's a continuously variable knob instead of the 3 position switch. Now we're up to 6.
The pick up selector makes 7. On Series II basses there is also a master volume control, that's 8. A lot of basses use a stacked volume knob to do what Alembic does with 2 or 3 volume knobs.
and in my opinion it was one of the best alembic body shapes...
look at that white thing between the neck pickup and the neck...looks like a strat pick up to me
Too many knobs...not good...aaah.
that's probably the brass truss rod cover
Please don't scare me by telling me who the player is.
nice bass but who is the guy playing it?
Twiggy, I really hope you are joking....but if not, that is ex-Metallica bass player Jason Newstead. If you would stop listening to that sh!tty manson crap, then you'd know a little bit about halfway real music....( I just guessed on the manson thing...you know....twiggy....manson's "bassist"> so if you really don't listen to that, completely disregard everything I just said)
Just covering my A**
rolling on the floor here lmao. thanks BASS_PLAYERS that would explain the metallica emblem on his shirt under the guitar strap!(i kill me) and yes by the way i do listen to that ****ty manson crap as you called it
