so this is my story: when i first picked up bass (i was a guitar player in my former life) i stumbled upon a 5 string fretless epic, sold to me by a friend.
this was it.
i played it religiously, caressed it, yes, even made love to it. but as i played i realized i needed a fretted bass, which I got and still play fretted to this day. and now the sad part. as money became tight, as it does for musicians, especially young unemployed students, and as my playing focus turned to a fretted sound - more funk, more rock - i sold the alembic. still brings a tear to my eye. and now, years later, i am older and wiser and a full time bass player in 4 different bands and need another fretless. So there's only one thing to do. I need to find another Alembic 5 string fretless. As would be expected, I am looking for an instrument in excellent shape and well cared for. Minimal scratches and/or blemishes are fine but above all the bass should in good playing condition. I would prefer an unlined neck, any wood, any body style.

So that's my story. If you have the bass I'm looking for and are wanting to sell it please contact me!!!

Sorry to hear you had to part with a bass you really enjoyed. We've all been there. Sold that one bass that we regretted (two in my past).

Your picture is iof a fretless Essence 5, not an Epic. And as much as I feel bad for your situation, if I were to see the bass in your picture before you see it, it would be mine.

Welcome to the Alembic Club and good luck on your hunt!
