Hey guys & gals
I took a drive from Chicago area to visit Will Gunn yesterday in Iowa.Wow what a fine assortment
he has of new basses that he treats like priceless gems.I was lucky enough to leave with a brown bass.Will was a great host and excellent
to do business with.I sold a Brubaker and Fodera
Victor Wooten Monarch classic to buy this bass &
it couldn't have been more worth it.It was hard to part with my Fodera because it did get one really good tone.When I got home I plugged in to my Aguilar and instantly all my concerns vanished.I am in awe of this bass.will post pic's
later. thanks Alembic for being more than I hoped for.

Welcome and congratulations on the Brown bass! It's nice to hear that the tone compares so favorably to the basses you sold to get this one.

I've spent a lot of time checking out the basses on Will's site - he certainly has some beauties there!

Michael, welcome! Your bass is a sure-fire beauty and huge sounding, no doubt. Will is a top notch guy and a pleasure with whom to talk Alembics, music and stuff in general.

Welcome aboard, Mike, and congrats on the Brown Bass! Your user name, "Bones"... as a long time Star Trek freak, the thing that popped into my mind was, "I'm a bass player, not a brick-layer, Jim!" Or some such thing.

Anyway, I'm glad to hear you like the Brown Bass sound. I've got a custom in the works that has Mahagony (and Vermillion) in the neck, and so, should have much of the Mahagony-dominated sound... so it's good to hear a thumbs-up.

Welcome to the club, and again, congrats on your new bass. Will Gunn seems like a nice fella.
