Up for auction on the UK ebay is a handsome 1997 5 string Epic! Has been a while since we have had another Alembic on the UK bay!

Starting at 599 it looks an attractive buy at the moment!

heres the link. I'm going to see how much this goes for. It may be there'll be a scottish resident one appearing if the price is right.

I lost out on a similar one back in ocober 07, seller agreed a price with me and then went "off the radar" and wouldnt answer his phone or emails:-(

I think he wasnt entirely happy with the 700 he had agreed and decided to hold onto it!

I would have preferred honesty instead of ignorance.

In fact on further inspection Im convinced that this is the same instrument that I missed out on!

I wonder why its up for auction again so quickly with a different seller?

It may be the seller didn't get on with the neck, it's quite wide and chunky.

Still, its a great bass that will probably sell cheaper than a new US Fender jazz!

I would have bought it if I hadnt been messed about with it before (is it possible its the same seller as before using a friends account?)

A four stringer is what I really want anyway:-)

Went for 695 in the end. I wouldn't let mine go that cheap!
