Hello Alembic World,
I'm putting together a small tool kit for my "87" Persuader. I have most of it in place but I have 2 questions.
1- What is the size of the nut on the bridge that holds the adjustment for the intonation from moving? Tiny!!
2- Is there a "Standard" for all Alembic Bassís? Example: does all bridges use the same size hardware. It looks like Alembic uses SAE not Metric hardware.
I other words the Tool size for all Bridge, Activator hieght,Truss rods,Nut and so on.

Good day Peter.
I just tuned-up my new (used) Excel.
Here are the tools I used:
Nut: 5/64'' Allen key
Height adjustment: 5/64'' Allen key
Intonation: 7/64'' Allen key that I cut to fit between the bridge and the string plate. If you take the bridge apart to polish it you also need a 5/32'' wrench for the intonation nut.
Trust rod: 1/4'' wrench
Screws: Phillips screwdriver.
Hope this helps.

It's handy to have a "ball-end" type of allen wrench (or driver) for the intonation so you can tweak it at an angle. The business end looks like this:
