To me, the Triple O shape really captures the beauty and power of an Alembic bass. The shape commands awe and respect. This unique bass looks like Antone's Stairway to Heaven. Congratulations Antone.

Very well said, Jeff. There's something about the exotic and unique style of a Triple O. First, the sheer size and weight impresses you, and then the sound overwhelms you. Truly a great experience, every time you pick her up.
Congratulations, Antone, and best of luck....

The Triple O's look downright Medieval to me, almost like a battle axe - but a very cool battle axe.

Wow yah It looks beautiful. I happen to be lucky enough to live about 2 miles from Alembic. So I got to pick a piece of Maple myself. I really Had know Idea how it was going to turn out.
I picked this bass body style because I love the wicked look it has to it, but is also very artistic and beautiful. I play a little Jazz, rock and Funk. But I also play a little Metal too. I think the look of the instrument will cross over to different Genres well.
I can't wait to get my greasy paws all over it.

Oh no, I can't get this bass out of my head. I NEED another Triple O, I do!!! It's true I tell you! (ok, maybe not, but look how GORGEOUS it is...). Scarily I've started eyeing up my other basses wondering how much I could get for them all....anyway, congrats Antone!!!! Trust me, I know from experience, when you get your hands on this bass you won't believe it!
