Hi Guys,

As much as I hate to part with this beautiful instrument, after a year and a half I realize that this body size and scale length is a little big for me. All my other basses are long scale, but since the body styles are much smaller, first position reach is not as far out. The only thought that keeps me going now is that as soon as I sell this baby, I will start the process for another custom Alembic, probably a Stanley Clark Signature.

Anyway, enough rambling...here are the specs for Lyric:

Mark King Deluxe 5-String Bass
S/N: 02MK12855 USA
Birth Date: 08/30/2002
Triple Omega Heart w/ pistol grip Body Style
Boby: Mahogany w/ Maple accents
Laminate: Coco Bolo Top & Back
Body Depth: 1.5
Fingerboard: ebony, Fretted
Neck thru body: 4 maple & 3 purplehart laminates
Neck Shape: Asymmetrical oval
Scale: 34"
Dual truss rods
Inlays: Abalone
Finish: high gloss polyester, satin neck
Pickups: AXY56
Controls: vol, pan, low-pass filter w/ q switch x2
Side-mounted input jack
Tailpiece: solid brass, bird
Machine heads: gold Alembic-Gotoh

This is an amazing sounding bass (as I know all Amembics are). She is in "new" condition; the only slight flaw is a scuff mark on the brass truss rod cover where my thumb hits it while slapping...but I am ordering a new truss rod cover from Alembic to put her back in perfect condition.

Will be posting her on ebay in a few days...but wanted to start her off here with family.

P.S. And yes...I did name my bass Lyric...so this is not an easy decision to part with her. I believe parting w/ my first wife was less stressful than this one. :-)

Hi Brother Mikey ...long time no see ...well ....that is to say ...."See" ....oh ...huh.

I am not a triple omega/pistol amateur but ...well ...I bet there are a LOT of people who do.
Anyway ...Lyric is a good name for her!

A fellow Alembician sent me an email yesterday requesting info on this sale, but unfortunately there was no name listed, and when I tried replying, received a 'Returned mail: user unknown' message. POP3User@peoplepc.com seems to be an address that cannot be replied to. Please email me again @ pookeymp@aol.com and include another email address that I can respond to, or feel free to call me @ (732) 713-6339.

Mikey, please do not post any more pics of her...I have a Triple O addiction and you're making life very difficult right now. That Heart Omega is sooo nice...and you're so close to me, too....and, arrrgghhhh........can't take it (cough), gotta log out (cough,cough)...

Hey Chris,

I see you are quite close...less than an hour away. Feel free to pop on by and give her a try. Make sure you bring your Alembics with you :-)

I checked out your basses...very nice. Your Triple O is absolutely gorgeous...and your Epic is no slouch either...both beautiful instruments.

The sad day has arrived...she is on her way to a new home. But I am consoled by the fact that she will make someone very happy.

Oh well...back to the lab...time to start thinking about my next short-scale custom.
