Medium 32" scale, flame maple top with Black Glass finish, what appears to be the EVH body style with extended horn, mahogany and maple neck, Anniversary electronics - WHICH HAS BEEN PREPPED FOR SERIES 1 INSTALL it appears!!!! Five pin jack, etc.
Holy cow. Only $3999.
If anyone in the Club wanted to convert their long scale or fretless Series into a wonderful EVH/Distillate medium scale fretted, all you have to do is swap the pickups and electronics out. (Looks like it has the humcanceller but the dark top makes it hard to see.) Of course leaving it as Anniversary is no loss either! What a beaut.

This guy keeps selling off his basses. I don't understand it as he's had some real killers made for him.

i have owned 11 or 12 custom alembics over the years. all of them i loved dearly.
my collection is down to 7 (after this one goes). i have sold off most of the medium scale basses (i prefer short scale). would have loved to have kept them all, but priorities have changed....we just had our 2nd baby, quit the day job and started up my own biz, etc.

I've visited the bass in person and it is the epitome of understated elegance. The finish on the top is gorgeous... up close the beautiful grain can be seen very subtlety through the black finish.
Drop dead gorgeous.
I think it's a really fair price too.

What's the weight like? Is it hollow or solid-bodied? Any balance issues?

it's solid-bodied. balance is good due to the evh shape. have no idea about the weight (maybe chad at the store can weigh it) but i own two other alembics that are heavier.
