I hope that this is not too "commercially agressive", but this was previously offered for sale on another thread and I traded for this from a good customer of mine and are asking $3799 + shipping. I thought that you might want to know about it. This is a really gorgeous bass and is in Near Mint condition. I would consider a trade for a '70s 4-String Series I (Short Scale) if anyone is considering a trade. If you have any questions email or give me a call. I own Bass Emporium and can be reached at 800-445-5578. You can also go to Alembic Essence Page to get some larger pictures.

Hi John-

I'm not sure what the site management might have to say, but it seems reasonable to me. While I don't think we want you to generally post your entire inventory here (unless you're offering big discounts to our members!!! :-)), I don't see your post as "commercially aggressive". If one of us had seen that bass on your website, we probably would have posted a link to it, albeit on the "Seen on craigslist, eBay, and elsewhere" section of the swap and shop boards. As you seem to be an Alembic owner at a personal level, there's no reason we should hold it against you that you also own a music store! I'm sure a slippery slope argument could be made here, but I believe we should burn that bridge if we come to it and allow any listing of used Alembic gear from any source.

Good luck with the sale. That's a pretty fair price for a bass that is way more than a simple Essence.

By the way, John, since you're here... Maybe you can help the guy who is looking for alternatives for strings for an EADGC five string. Look here if you can assist him:

Hopefully this won't divert your thread here.
