This one is real, I do believe. Alembic made a deal with a Japanese manufacturer. I believe Alembic supplied the electronics and logo and the Japanese company did the rest. They've been discussed around here before. I'm sure someone will jump in who knows more about these than I do.

I only see a 10HE SKB case...
but it's like Tom says. The distributer in Japan wanted to keep Alembic alive and got the electronics and logo to put them on their basses due to limited availibility of "the real thing"
