I traded one of my Mesa Boogie 400+ stacks for my dream bass, an Alembic Elan Plus 4. That being said, I have to make room for my new Addiction, another Alembic! This is one of the rare, only produced one year, Ibanez USATK basses with the Dave Bunker tension free neck design. This bass is not to be confused with the lesser ATK 300 models that followed.
Here is a link to the 1996 Ibanez catalog.

More info on Dave Bunker's Tension free neck design here:

This is a players bass, not a museum piece. The transparent red has mellowed into a sort of dark wine, for lack of a better color.
There are nicks, dings and looks like someone mared the pick guard with a cig but the neck and body are sound.
The electronics are perfect! Freshly strung with DR Hi Beam 40-100. This is just about the baddest playing rock bass I have owned and I have had more than a few.
I would rather keep this local as the rates to ship have gone sky high so MD, PA, VA, WVa, and DE for the tyme being, please.
If you feel you want her shipped, PM me a zip and I will check on a price.
She comes with a tweed Fernandes case, all latches work, one of the 'lay down' feet off but all the stand up feet are intact.
Price is $550. I might be willing to trade but I am really looking to sell. Send me offers and I will let you know.
I am partial to the works of Leo (G&L) and I wouldn't kick another Alley (Alembic) outa' bed (cash added on my end, of course).
Here are a tease pic and a link to my Picasa album. Please feel free to ask any and all questions.
