It will not come as a surprise to those who like to browse the Factory To Customer threads here at the Club that this particular build will be a Featured Custom at the Alembic home page. No sirree! Lots of gorgeous wood on display, an iconic shape and a great story to boot.
Club members get a sneak preview here before it's posted to the main Alembic site.

What Dave said..... Stunningly beautiful.
I do like that body style more on guitar than bass I have to say.

Congrats John. I've followed your build since I saw it 'in the flesh' and just knew it would be CotM.

Who did the knobs? What size are they (top hat or collet knob size)? I like what I see and would consider getting a set for my Series and maybe fretless.

Wow, what a stunning instrument. So many cool details (for a minute I thought to myself "hey, this is a Series II, where's the humcanceller and then realized it had a piece of the book matched wood!). Love the logo, too. And the wood, well, I'm speechless at its beauty.

Fabulous, simply fabulous.
+1 on all of the comments above - plus the Skyway trem looks like it was made just for it.
Is it performing as expected?
