Hi all,
just thought I would post my recent purchase of an alembic persuader, fretless bass. I will know in a week or two if I am going to hang onto it. It is very clean, factory stock, three piece maple neck with an ebony board, mahogany body with a maple cap, serial starts with 86P3...
Not sure what it would be worth if I decide to sell, I was thinking $1800 canadian $$ which would include a new non factory HS case, plus buyer would pay for shipping. Here are a couple of pics.
thanks

Looks very sweet, I almost decided to buy it when it was for sale on TB and I don't even play fretless :-)

well, another update, after a couple of weeks I have decided I can live without the bass. This is a great playing fretless, probably the nicest neck I have had on a fretless bass. I did buy a brand new hardshell (generic) jazz bass case, was $120, good quality. If there is any interest in this bass $1650 US will take it away. Price does NOT include shipping. I have shipped a couple of basses over the years via Talkbass trades and both times to the US shipping has been well under $200 (insured)
Email for better resolution pics if interested, and visit my website if you like as well
thanks

I will include shipping to lower 48 states (insured), with the brand new hard shell case included for $1750 US. Full serial is 86P3973, also have it registered on the Alembic owners page as well. And again, detailed pics will be sent to serious enquires.

PRICE UPDATE
$1600 US takes it away with the new case and insured shipping to lower 48 states or Canada included.
Shipping is quite $$ when it comes to cross border dealing so I have budgeted $170 US for shipping/insurance.
Of course you can drive up thru the sumas (Wa.) USA border and buy it directly from me for $1430 US

It worked with my Alembic F-1X, but my wife admitted she was involved in it. I freaked out when I opened the box LOL.
