I'm looking for a Series 1, fretted or fretless. Preference for fretless. Four strings is adequate for a simple country boy like me.
I prefer the body without the standard point (by the tailpiece) that stops you leaning it in the corner. I don't mind some wear and buckle rash. Medium or long scale.
I'm no expert, so advise me if you want ... maybe a S2 would suit me. Cash buyer, or swap my lush Persuader plus cash? Discuss

Here are a couple of places you may want to keep your eyes focussed at. This is the UK Alembic Distributor
UK American guitar company
and this one I think is in Germany Station Music
You may find something comes up there from time to time.

FYI, not in the UK or Europe but a beautiful 4 string Series I fretless it is. Not sure whether it is still available. http://alembic.com/club/messages/395/64652.html

Wow, that sure is pretty, but a little radical for me. I prefer the smaller body, with shorter 'horns'. And I won't be in the US on business for a few months. But I really appreciate your help and support in the search!

John, What about something like this?
If I don't find work soon I will have to sell.

Looks good - though I already feel bad that someone would have to sell their Alembic because they couldn't find work. You're not in the cricket team are you?

This one is also still available, though no Series electronics in there...
misread :-) (I saw "Europa fretless")

Thanks for the post, FC! Cute and lovely figured wood, but I think I prefer the earlier style. I love the neck ...

I'm based in the UK and may have a bass that is of interest - fretted and point body I'm afraid but a Series 1 in absolutely as new condition. Drop me your email and we can talk. I'm up in Manchester but travel South a lot!
