Long time listener, first time caller...
Like all of you, I'm a big fan of Alembic... I won't bore you with the details, but I did want to share pictures of my bass with you all.
I had this made a few years ago... a childhood dream come true!

Hi Keith, that's a beatiful bass!
I don't think a discussion of the control setup would hurt. I would guess you started with a Stanley Clarke model? So that would be a mono-stereo switch next to the 1/4" jack.

I started with a Stanley standard, added a back laminate, 20th anniversary electronics, bass and treble boost/cut switches, and side L.E.D.'s in red which turn on when the bass is plugged in.
The black line between the pickups is a strip of ebony that serves as a thumb rest.
It has golden mother of pearl inlays and a slight amber tint to the finish.

That slight amber tint really makes that quilt jump. I regret not getting a tint on my bass.

Wew Keith ...really nice and well thought of electronics.
And indeed that amberish color surplus really "makes" it!
Paul the bad one

That is one ugly bass you got there Keith.... I'll bet you have to drink a sixpack before you can even open the case on that one.*Laughs sarcastically*
Seriously, That is one of the most beautiful Quilt patterns I have ever seen. I love to see those SC models all decked out like yours. The matching headstock is a nice touch.(I wish mine had that)
