I just clicked on this link from my FaceBook feed. Wasn't really paying attention, then I thought "My, that's a very articulate bass revealing really articulate playing"

Upon further examination:

Alembic (and a really phenomenal player) strikes again.

Thanks Flip ____ I would like to do that on an Alembic as well. I have a Pedulla Buzz 4 with that kind of fingerboard and two custom Fender types with coated fingerboards BUT I really miss the Alembic electronics and pickups on those instruments.

Wow, that is completely the opposite of what I play, I guess we just established the parameters of the Alembic bass community...or so...Tony
