I got this about a year ago, to complement my 4 string Series I. [http://alembic.com/club/messages/411/53445.html?1215399308]
Great balance, both sonically and physically.
Strange phenomenon, though. Now my 4 string, long scale Series I seems like quite a reasonable bass to get around on. It always used to seem, well, big.
Reminds of when I switched from my Suzuki 550 to riding a Harley-Davidson Road Glide - That Suzuki always seemed so, well, big. Until the HD touring class came along (but that's a topic for another forum, I guess.)

Your motorcycle comment is right on target around here. Mention motorcycles and beer in the same sentence and you'll be amazed at the response ;)
Nice quilt on that essence!

Welcome to the club Tom.
Very nice axe, I bet that long upper horn balances it out real well.
I like your S-1 and choice of MC.

Nice top on a nice bass! Fretboard looks pretty cool too!

Nice Bass, Tom. I own a Rogue but my dream is to get one Essence 6 string. I think Essence is the finest Alembic's body shape, tiny and accurate. Does it balances well, Tom?
