2001 Brown Bass in VERY good condition but not mint. Electronics modified by Alembic. Mono/stereo B.B. electronics with master volume control and bass boost/cut switch on neck p/u. Will put original Alembic knobs back on.
LOOKING FOR: Alembic with lighter (in color) wood such as any maple (burl, birds eye, flame,quilted)or Zebra with mahogany or walnut core. Laminates would be nice but not important.
Body Shape: Small Standard (like the B.B) Standard (would prefer 3/4) Spolier, Essence, Elan
Pick-ups: I Would prefer soap bar pickups.
Electronics: I prefer SC or MK but I WILL accept lower grade electronics
Condition: Does not have to be mint. Equal condition to my bass is preferred.
I want to trade this because my other Alembics have dark wood and I want one with lighter wood. This is a great opportunity if you want to trade up. Attached is a pic. If you have questions and want more pix, please email me (see profile for addy)

A basic brown bass is what I was playing the night you stopped by. It is a short scale. Stoney's has the additions of a master volume and bass boost on the neck pickup. I can't talk to the bass boost switch but the master volume is something that I would like on my bass.

I'm interested in your offer, if it's still available. For trade, I have an 1992 flame maple Essence-5 (fretted)that I bought in 1994, brand new (w/ Alembic hs case). My email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Pickups: 2WMXY (soapbars)
Tuners: Chrome, Gotoh
Neck: 7 pc maple
Question: How do you compare playing a short scale (32" ?) to a regular scale (34 or 35")?
I'm uploading a photo of it and am happy to send more.
