Does anyone by chance know anything about this bass? The Low End Bass Shop has it for sale and I'm thinking about it.Thanks

I haven't seen the bass, but I have dealt with Brian Barrett before and he is commendably honest and knowledgable...a great guy who can be trusted.

From the pics it seems to be in good condition. Though there are others who have a lot more expertise than I do with respect to the value of Alembics of this era, this would appear to be good deal if there are no unforeseen issues.

Have to agree...this guy has a pretty good rep. The bass is complete and clean. I say it's a go at 4K. Just my lowly opinion.

I also know that having had him outbid me at the last second on an Alembic on EBay (that he resold at a higher price later on), that you can find similar basses for somewhat less money if you take a little time.

I found the build sheet in the archived section 2005. But the build card might be incorrect.
Here's what's in the instrument file:
neck: Maple and Walnut 34" scale
fingerboard: Partridgewood (aka Granadillo) with mother of pearl inlays
peghead veneers: Walnut
originally made for: Rothschild (our distributor at the time)
borthday: December 20, 1976
From what I could tell, we haven't heard from this bass since the day we shipped it.
