I've been talking with this seller. He stopped the auction as soon as he heard it wasn't an Alembic. It will be relisted later an Alembic copy.
Any chance that Phil actually made this bass?

The 'Phil Jones' they're talking about here is not the high-end audio/outside-the-box bass amp guy. This one is a custom builder who worked at Gibson (one of the guys in that class with Tom Murphy)when I was there in the early 90's, don't know where he's at now, nor do I know who the guy is listed as the recipient. You notice the Gibson brass truss rod cover, plus it's really funny to see the AXY's with FOUR screws in them, don't know how they're mounted. Phil builds some nice things. Gibson in those days was building a lot of very gaudy one-offs for the famous (you just haven't lived till you see a Firebid 7 in Purple Sparkle!), and lots of things were being Frankenstein'd . . . . .
