This is my first Alembic! Curious as to any history with this bass. I picked it up from Bass Northwest a few months ago.

Congratulations Dusty! Pictures and more pictures, Play it Healthy! Art

ps: please be patient with the request, it takes time for Mica to research each of these along with her many other responsibilities. They are done in the order received and get posted once the written record card is deciphered ;)

Congrats !
At some point in the past, this instrument was reported stolen, at least it is listed as such in Flip's reference table. If this is the case, I'm glad the bass has resurfaced, it already seems to have some mojo at age eleven :-)

I think it was reported stolen on the Alembic site, updated the list.

Congrats with your first Alembic! :-)

Greets! Is The List only for reported stolen basses? If not, I would like to add my Epic to the listing...

History request Here: http://alembic.com/club/messages/394/72846.html?1269866686

Showcase topic Here: http://alembic.com/club/messages/411/74425.html?1261440421

Will be adding some more pics to the showcase soon, guts out (was a throrough cleaning!) and my own markings -My personal anagram, name and ID card number- drawn within the bridge pickup cavity, just in case. I definitely am NOT planning to part with him in the future!.

Here's a photo from the bass northwest site, before it was mine.

Here's the bass in action in San Fransisco last weekend.

I don't own a camera or even a phone with a camera so this is all I have at the moment.
