Why do I keep looking at this build record? This does NOT help my eXtreme GAS I have for one of those. At all... and you can tell it's bad because the "X" is capitalized. As I understand it that means it's really extra extreme... or eXtra eXtreme.

That's a wonderful top on that bass. Even though I swore I'd never order another Alembic after my Rogue I could see myself ordering a 5 string Spyder at some point. *sigh*

Hi stephane and welcome to the club from Scotland. You're going to have a wonderful Bass sometime soon. If you search the forum, there are one or two other parisians on here. I'm sure they'll be along shortly to add their salutations.

The finish looks awesome - I know you're going to love the bass.

I want one too. With an extra string though. Fantastic bass stephane! looks like I'll have to plan another trip to Paris just to hear this in the flesh.
