Excellent, congratulations. Don't forget to post photos when you get it. Just as soon as you can put it down long enough to take them.

Congrats jonno! I'm also waiting on a Mark King Deluxe Coco Bolo Balance K Omega. I look forward to seeing yours.
I haven't seen what you've described in the Factory to Customer section... did I miss it, or did you forego this option, or did you purchase one you found to your liking through a dealer?
Just curious. Again, congrats, and please post pictures. I think the Balance K is the coolest body shape ever!
Your first Alembic, huh? You WON'T be disappointed... especially with the model you've chosen!!!

It turned out that a dealer had the bass on order and the customer changed to a 4 string so I was able to grab it 2 weeks prior to completeion and at 06 pricing..There are a few options on this bass I wasnt even thinking about like the headtsock Omega detail....I am still waiting on picutres to confirm and approve..This has all been sight unseen..
