Thank you for your kind offer to check this out for me. Spoken like a real Alembician.
Seriously, that's very cool of you.
I'm currently in the 'think about it' phase after speaking with both them and Mica. I figure a couple of days of pondering and letting the adrenalin die down will give me better objectivity to make the decision.
As well, Mica was kind enough to point out it's actually an Essence body (Doh!) which increases my ponderage, as I'm so set on a Rogue. But then again Mica says the Essence is the most petite bass they make and my Epic is kinda big and so is a Rogue, and then there's the side LED upgrade and then yada, yada, yada..... ;)
Yeah I think a couple of days to think about this is in order. :D
I'll keep you posted.
Thank you again Jeff.
Kimberly --->wandering around the house muttering to herself.
PS. Yup, I'm a lefty and in the approximate 15% category of left handed players that play 'upside down' using right hand stringing on a left hand instrument. Just as an FYI I've already gotten a quote from Mica to have it strung upside down and discussed bridge options and how mounting a midi p/u on this bass could be made to work.
Mutter, mutter, mutter... ;)

The top on that bass is beautiful!

It's an essence body shape, just for reference, and other than the cognitive dissonance of being a lefty (they always make me feel like I'm looking at an optical illusion!), looks quite nice.
You should get it. Then it would justify the purchase I want.

It's with a heavy heart, due to a *real* reality check, I'm going to have to pass on this one. Now if he's still there in a couple of months... ;)
Jeff - The offer you made to help me out by checking this in person was absolutely awesome! Thank you! If ever anything comes into Bass Northwest, (15 miles to the ferry, 30 minute boat ride, five block walk to Bass Northwest), I'd be pleased to be able to help and personally check it out for you.
Dave - I stared at that picture for more than a few hours all told. Beautiful top indeed.
Bradley - Maybe next time. ;) BTW, you in for July dates?
