Anyone see this one?

Doesn't Moonstone have some kind of an Alembic connection? It's kinda ugly, kinda cool! I bet those early Barts would sound good through an SF-2!

Hello Harry , I saw that as well. I have HI -A pickups like that in my remaining Guild Starfire. Those pickups are not as crisp as any of my Alembic pickups. (To my ears) .

Wacky. I used to see lots of Moonstone basses back in the day at Union Grove Music in Santa Cruz, ca. 1980. I never really connected with them, but they looked really cool.

And I really like the switch plate on the back on that bass.
