I've been visiting since early Nov07 when I purchased my 1st Alembic off of ebay. Now that I have joined the 21st century and bought a digital camera, I finally feel worthy of joining THE CLUB.

Welcome aboard!

Red basses rock... perhaps a set of those red strings seen in the background would be fitting....

How are you and the Essence getting along?

Yeah I've got those DR's on the SB1000. As far as the Essence goes I'm a complete convert. The way I thought a bass should play and sound was right there all along. Sold my Zon Sonus fretless 4, Stingray Sub and my Tobias Killer B5 and now have a Orion 4 OceanBurst w/5A quilt and leds thanks to the Jan special on the way. Alembics are on another level as you know.

You are correct about them being on another level.

I too have a custom in the planning stages- hopefully a June/July start date will be realized for mine.

I dig the Orion body style and really like colored finishes- the Oceanburst ALWAYS just pops on that quilt maple. It'll be a stunner when it's done- what electronics package are you getting?

Welcome aboard!
You don't have to have an Alembic to join the club, but appreciation of these beauties certainly helps! :-)
Play her in good health.

Welcome to the board Shannon! Oceanburst on a 5A Quilt will be nice!

Thanks for the greetings. As far as electronics in the Orion right now just the standard package. But will probably add the filter and Q switch for the EMW. That filter blows me away with the various tones it offers. Also getting a FatBoy in the bridge.
