Your bass was not actually manufactured by Alembic. It was manufactured by a Japanese company under license using Alembic electronics and logo. I don't believe very many were made. If you search the site you should be able to find some threads about them.

How is it sounding? It's looking like a design cocktail of Curbow, Hofner and Leduc.... Amazing!!

hi
thank u all
the bass is wonderful, the sound is amazing.
and as u see, i use rotosound tru bass strings...
i was curious about the origin of the bass because i'had never seen any bass with bridge made of wood. In fact i've never seen something like this...do u know if there is other brand that used this type of bridge made of wood and "micro" tuning. thanks.

Your bass have got everything to sound as deeper as a double-bass; and it is very beautiful. For the wooden bridge, I think ( but I'm not very sure ) that the Masterpiece serie from Leduc have got this bridge too..But that is surely not the only one.If anyone could tell more.....
