I've been fortunate enough to own 26 Alembics at one time or another, and I've played many more. This Series I 5 string (87-4254) is to my ears the best sounding Alembic I've ever played. Even my drummer notices how great this bass sounds :-) I have no idea why this bass is so special, but I assume it's magic or karma or whatever -- so I call her the Voodoo Bass.


What's up with the oddly-mutated body shape?


The cocobolo looks great, sounds great and weighs a ton! And check out the weird greenish-black pickup covers.


Love that cone-shaped headstock!
