At long last, I'm the proud owner of an Alembic.
It's an Epic 4 fretless.

Bradley, congrats. That's beautiful. I like the bookmatched top. I would love to have a fretless electric, too.

Dude, I have an Epic 5 fretless and i love it but i luv yours because you have marker lines!!!!!
Mine is like a black mirror, only some dots on the side!!! This did forced me to learn hand/finger position theory and listen for the note instead of looking ( more like upright bass)
But Id luv to have lines on my finger board - cherish that bass my friend!
Ps I thought Alembic Only did unlined fretless!!!

robbie - they'll do anything you want. My rogue is lined but I could have had tiny fret markers along the edge instead if I'd wanted. It takes alot of confidence to play a blank fingerboard.

And a good ear too! Of course, LED markers really help too! (Read: add FretFX for under $80 bucks!)
