I've already offered this bass for sale here some years ago, then thought I had a buyer when I didn't and then ran out of time, so here it is again :-)

1990 Series II Omega cut, beautiful cocobolo top and back, brass backplates engraved, 34" scale, red side and front Laser LEDs, DS5R psu, cable, case.

I point out the cosmetic detail in the photos here: http://ztup.com/Alembic/newpics.htm

Series 2 usually offer wonderful playability and sound, but this one is incredible!

Considering serious offers in currency only as I stopped playing bass some years ago. I'm in Rouen/France and can ship as requested or meet you at Paris airports or train stations.

BEAUTIFUL bass. too long scale for me though. Good luck with the sale. It would be helpful if you indicated what you were looking to get for it in both Euros and U.S. dollars

Yes you're right, I expect at least 5000€ (feel free to offer more :D) which would amount to about USD 7000 including UPS shipping.

@edwin: actually recording the vid made me interested again, so I'm playing again from time to time :-)

@unclepezza: I had several buyers but the transaction proved too complicated/time consuming so I'm keeping it for the time being, I'm too busy at work recently and enjoy playing it very much after all. So it's off the market, sorry.

My business has increased tremendously, once I figure out how to cope I may put it back up for sale.

Is this bass still to sell ? Even if I'm more looking for a short scale, this seems a very nice instrument and longer neck is not a big trouble for me (I played a longer 'normal' instument (I mean non Alembic) a few month ago). What about the bass balance with such a neck ?

I plan to go to Paris for business next week and surely later too. I live in Belgium et suis francophone ;-)... so maybe an appointment is possible.

Best regards,

Sorry for the late reply but I am really busy these days and don't have time to handle the sale of this bass. Maybe after the summer :D
