I'm surprised this bass is still for sale. Someone should scoop it up!

I think it is just priced too high. Plus it is missing the blue box/chord which would reduce the price even more.

What does everyone think about the purported John Entwistle association? It can't be accurate, can it? JAE didn't even know about Alembic until 1974, and I don't recall ever seeing him with a bass with those caramel covered pickups.

All I see in the posting is it was signed by John. I don't read anymore into it other than someone had him autograph the bass.
