My husband bought this new. Very good condition. I was wondering it's value.

Hi Tammy and welcome to the forum. Our members really enjoy pictures of Alembic instruments and can better valuate the bass if you are able to share a picture. There may have been a build card in the case with the woods used, its birth date and the people that worked on the bass. This is generally the information that Mica is able to provide when the 3x5 card where the information was recorded is located at the offices in Santa Rosa, CA. Look-ups are done in the order they are received and can sometimes take a few months. Thanks, in advance, for your patience. Happy holidays! Art
