Over the holiday break I had to take my Stanley Clarke Sig Deluxe to my guitar tech to do a little fretwork - the fret ends were protruding due to slight fretboard shrinkage.
When I picked it up, he raved about the perfection of the instrument saying "this is the finest bass I've ever seen". I consider this to be high praise as he's an ex-machinist and has worked on thousands of instruments over his 20+ year second career as a guitar tech.
He also said he looked real hard to find any imperfection and could find none.
Unfortunately, he kept referring to it as an "Olympic"...
Oh well...you say tomato and I say to-MAH-to.
At least he liked it!

OTOH, tonight one of the Rockford newscasters was discussing a charity hockey game, which featured not only a lot of former Blackhawks but "an Alembic standout"!

Maybe they were thinking of Cheap Trick's 12 string bass...

On that note, is anyone going to be watching the winter Alembic games in Sochi?
I hear fretboard gymnastics, neck diving and the bi-amp-a-thon will be new categories of competition...
