Bought this bass! Have always wanted an Alembic... and it plays and sounds great! I know you're all in the midst of Holiday Madness, so I'll be patient regarding info.... by the way, I used to live in Santa Rosa in the '70's, but now reside in the sunny clime of Kailua, Hi.... Happy Holidays, and Aloha!

Welcome to the Club Ian

Please resubmit your pictures so we can see your baby
