Unusual having the solid body wings like that. I like the look of the maple. This bass also gives me a good idea of what some 50 year old Eastern Maple slabs I have would look like as a bass.

Looks like the white one that was for sale recently ("More for the collector than the bass player this is not the original finish")

Flip - Good catch. I think you might be on to something. Personally I like seeing the maple rather than covering it up with paint.

I thought that when I saw it too Flip. I actually liked it in white paint too. I'm not as keen on light woods as I am with the darker woods. Now if that was in Cocobolo or madagascar ebony, my fingers would be twitching.

I'd probably be interested if it were in the US at a US price.

That bass speaks to me. I love its body and I am a huge fan of the crown head. But I want a series and won't settle for anything else.

It's the one and only Edwin van Huik!

Here's a thread under Artists and Their Alembic. Best to start with the archived messages first.

And a more recent thread here!

Here's an EVH that I am proud to call mine.

[link]

Pretty sure that Mica told me that this is the only one to be offered for sale by a dealer in the United States. Excellent balance with this different body style, and very versatile with the East Meets West electronics.

Edwin Van Huik is a great guy. We exchanged some messages when I told him that I picked up his signature model here in the States.

I like that 5-strring. Someone here should take it home!

[edited to fix the link]
