I found this lefty Alembic on eBay on spring '97.
Even I'm not a six string player, I bought it since it was the only left handed Alembic I've seen around (for an affordable price).
Since it is a six string, it has a different pick up configuration that the four and five string versions.
May I know the reason why?
I'd like to know as much as possible about this bass.
If somebody is into the second hand market, I'd like to know a possible estimation for this bass.
I paid €2000 for it (including hardshell case and shipping from Spain) but I don't know if it was a good price.
The bass, anyway, is in perfect condition.
The only weird thing is that the serial number is on the truss-road metal cover, it's very easy to remove (in case of stealing).
Picture coming soon.

Here are several previous threads I found on your serial number until the file at Alembic can be looked up.
Enjoy your bass. Play it Healthy!

That's a beautiful bass! I was playing mine last night. There should also be a s/n imprinted on the wood just inside the control cavity cover on the lip. I think Alembic just needed to make a wide pickup to fit six strings. Nothing wrong with them.
