I had been looking for a 6. Found this through a very reputable seller who specializes in high-end basses on eBay. My second Alembic, and it's every bit as awesome as my first (a Series I).

BTW, I requested information on this bass when I registered it, but obviously you can ignore the other request in the registration.Essence 6

(Resurrecting a very old thread)

Thanks Mica,

The specs don't say what kind of fretboard wood is used. Do you know, or can you tell from this picture :pic of board

Looks like ebony to me. Ebony can have a variety of colors and patters.

Yup. Macassar Ebony is fairly normal for w-i-d-e fingerboards around here.
