Hey Edwin, glad to have you here in this gathering. Just wondering, how many Alembics do you own or have you owned?

Edwin, she looks great. Is that a medium scale on a small standard body? Good to hear from you.

Will Alembic still make a graphite neck model as a custom order?

Hello Edwin,
Very nice bass indeed! She's exactly what I'd like to have one day as well! A graphite neck must sound different from a normal short scale. Could you try to describe a bit if there is a notable tonal difference to a wooden neck Alembic, I suppose there is? How do the harmonics ring? I've noticed that on an all graphite bass they ring actually a lot better than on a wooden bass (even if it's an Alembic!)
All the bass
