I really like that walnut top. Since I don't really play bass, this is too much for me. I've never seen a strap peg on the front like that. Could that be original?

Not to mention that Alembic has previously stated that they don't / haven't sponsored anyone. Must be a misunderstanding somewhere if he claims he bought this from a sponsored artist. Interesting bass, but worth checking the pedigree through Mica for verification before you step into it. Looks like Anniversary electronics.

That was built for someone that Alembic has known for a long time. The bass is totally legit, JPJ shape with the rounded upper horn, "Very nice Walnut" top, and anniversary electronics.
