Hi all,
I'm from Italy-
I bought an Alembic Elan 4 strings.
I found it in amazing condition because it remained unsold for 24 years with its original case, warranty certificates and tool bag.
greetings

For a used Elan valuation for Europe for that age I would say that a fair price would be in the 1200 to 1400 depending on condition and for a NOS i would expect to pay between 1800 - 2000 tops.

But that is just my estimate based on what I've seen basses like that sell for on ebay and the odd UK music store.

However there is a new Elan bass in the UK Alembic Dealer's shop which has the body style of a Jazz bass but still has the elan electronics and neck

and it is on sale for 4395.00
