Hello, I am new to Alembic products and basses. I have spent quite a lot of time with acoustic, acoustic/electric, and I have a few solid body electrics.
I am a fan of all types of music except Rap and Disco. I am no virtuoso, but am a highly motivated player.
Alembic became my choice for a bass based on its long-standing excellent reputation for quality, attention to detail , and playability. I tried to "fall in love" with Fender Precision and Jazz basses, but couldn't! Although, I did purchase a Fender Mustang for my Grandson. Besides, I really like nice things and it seems that Alembic basses are at the top of the heap.
I look forward to following the forum.

I forgot to mention that I jumped into Alembic kind of thoroughly. I got an Essence 4 30.75" scale and a Signature Standard 5 string with the 34" scale.

Welcome Scott, I think that a 30.75" Essence might be a bit of a rare bird, Pics please, of both, of course...

I only have an IPad with photos in that. I don't have a clue how to download them. They are still up in Will Gunn's website, though.
My Son is learning to play guitar, yet he has Cerebral Palsy and I thought the short scale would allow him to noodle around some.
