I know it is not an Alembic, but I think it is worth some attention!

$8000! Hard to believe, but to each their own.

Only $4500 this time - starting bid that is! So what is this bass realistically worth? Thanks Ron.

Stanley Clarke is one of my great bass heroes, but that thing is just butt-ugly

The design isn't even all that original. Here's a Daion Savage circa 1978-82. Look familiar?

The three original Spellbinders that I've played were absolutely awful instruments...

It's been years ago, like '84-'85. Guitar Center (or Bass Center maybe?) on Ventura Blvd. had several of them pass through, and of course I made it my mission to play everything in that place. They felt and sounded like cardboard. Thin, light body mated to a tiny neck. Not enough mass or stiffness though.. Think of it as the opposite of an Alembic.
edited to add: If I didn't have to rely on it as my primary instrument, I'd still love to have one just for cool factor..
