Here is my Custom Mark King Signature Deluxe that I had received a few weeks ago:
Serial # 06C13652

Here is a closer shot:

Here is a shot of my alembics
1980 Series II
2006 Custom Mark King
1994 Epic

Alembic Family

The specs:
34" scale MK Signature Deluxe
Omega Cutout
Custumized pistol grip horn [in between triple omega and standard horn]
Coco Bolo front/back
body- mahogany core/maple/purpleheart lams
tummy contour
custom neck -3m/2p [epic neck dimensions]
crown peghead with purpleheart lams instead of walnut
signature electronics with dummy pickup
and customized with europa bass boost/cut switch[a definite plus feature on this instrument]
top hat knobs [for classic look]

The funny thing about Alembics, is you can never capture the beauty and quality of these instruments in a photo!

any feedback, I would love to here from you.
Thanks Brad

Very nice trio Brad. I really like the Omega bodies. The pistol grip is cool too. Is your MK as heavy as your Series bass? I have a MK with a Burl Maple top and back and it is WAY heavier than my Series II with Walnut top and back.

The Series II and the MK seem to weight about the same to me. I can tell you in the first 5 minutes of playing the MK, with the custom neck and the signature electronics with the Europa bass boost switch, the playability and sound I was instantly sold! So I guess my Series II will be a hanger queen for awhile.

Very nice presentation, Brad. An Alembic for each of the last 3 decades...something we should all aspire to! It is indeed a fine looking family.......
