Bass Northwest is listing a used Vantage bass which contains two Alembic "P"-style pickups and a low-pass filter. Seems like the price is right.

Those were pretty well made in the day. I'd be surprised if it weren't pretty close to the performance of a Spoiler or Persuader for a very low price. Heck, you could probably rip out the electronics and sell them for the $399 purchase price.

Wow...neck-through design with Alembic electronics for $399.00!!! Can't go wrong there. With the current exchange rate, they probably owe you money.
