Im realy interested in getting a custom Epic bass made by Alembic with a scorpion body shape(like Greg Lake's)fretless,with a Flame maple topwood on the body & peghead.everthing else on it would be standard Epic(electronics,hardware,ect).Does anyone know of or recommend a good Finance Company I could contact to get the Monetary side of things rolling?

I can't help you out with the finance company, but I think it'll be a killer bass...

EPIC controls...? You should get a filter & Q switch too... they're an essential part of the Alembic sound.

Get the "East Meets West" electronics... which offers BOTH the Epic controls AND the standard Alembic filter & Q setup.

I also love the Scorpian body style... it was my favorite until I saw the Europa (which was my favorite until they came up with the Balance K!)

Good luck with it!

I think with the Epic electronics that as well captures the Alembic sound,even with filters,they have a beautiful fundimental tone underneath the whole time (to Me).Also,depending on where your plucking hand is you can change the tone as well,its not as obvious change,but there is a deffinite difference.(thanks for the suggestion though).
