Well, not that I have any delusions about my opinions forming any sort of policy, but, in my house, I am of the opinion these Epic basses stand up to anything else out there. I was finally able to use it in a couple of gig situations. Outstanding. I was completely blown away by this bass. Interesting that it was presented as zebra top. Anyway, it is a coco top with a koa headstock veneer. Odd combination, but if those two veneers anything to do with the tone of the bass, the oddity is certainly a good thing.

It is also odd how drawn I am to the Orion 6...jealousy between Alembics? Hmmm...

An Alembic bass is like a brick of gold to me. You're very lucky to have two.

I can't figure out my bass wood combo either. I think it may be Coco over a Koa body.(?) The usual Walnut and Mahagony is also one of my faves.
