Hi all, I'm selling my Alembic MK Signature Deluxe with Coco Bolo top, so here is little about the bass.
Bass has no scratch, no belt buckle scratch, it's almost as brand new, as you can see from pics.
Fingerboard: Ebony with abalone
Top: coco Bolo
Back: Coco Bolo
Body: Mahogany with maple and purplehearth as accent woods
Neck: Maple with Purple Hearth stringers
Finish: clean gloss with satin finish on the neck
weight: 5.7 kg (with 5 9v batteries that goes into the bass, 4x for LED)
Electronics: volume, pan, 2x filters, 2x q switches, 1x LED on/off, 1/4" mono output.
LEDs are amber and red (check pictures)
Bass was done in 2015, so it has 2+3 machine heads.
Bass has original case, papers, everything. New one like this is 17.600 dollars, you can check here on Alembic site my bass is Sig Dlx Coco Bolo.
This is I think only signature bass in EU that is available with this price. For any questions you can contact me. Here are some pic that justify the whole thing, other pics you can see on my dropbox:
Price says 6000 pounds but it's actually 6500 euros, just conversion is different every day.
I posted on here a while go but since then my guestlist has grown quite a bit I thought I'd start a new thread in case some of you might like to know about a Podcast/YouTube channel I publish called Bass Lessons Melbourne - Player Profiles.
I interview local and touring bassists and publish the discussion as a youtube video and an audio only podcast episode. You can find the videos here:

In the meantime check out this episode with the legendary Leland Sklar
I absolutely looooove this pedal. But alas, selling. Great nick (need a clean) and sounds amazing. Good price. MXR Bass octave. Simple. Does what it says on the tin and sounds beastly.
£50 - perfer collection from London (Forest Hill Area), but will post as long as you pay for it.

Up for sale or trade is my Fodera Emperor DLX 5-string!
In really good shape and been played alot! It had Seymour Duncan jazz-style pickups in it but those have been changed to Aguilar DCB to give this bass more "modern" sound. The whole bass came alive after this operation.
Ask if you have some questions!

Unfortunately, I have to reduce my equipment even further. After long hesitation, I am now offering my Duesenberg Motown Bass, of which there are not too many instruments on the market. Compared to other Duesenberg basses and semi-acoustic bass models the Motown offers a couple of “special features”:
3 Single-Coil-Pickups (neck-position, Preci-position, Jazz-Bass-position).
Each of them can be switched on and off individually.
Longscale-neck (34“) and Singecut-body without any neck-dive!
Here are the further details:
Body: maple with spruce top
Neck: maple with rosewood fretboard
Frets: 20 Jumbo-frets, 34“
Pickups: 3x Duesenberg Special DS Single-Coils
Elektronics: passive, 1x Volume, 1x Tone
Weight: 3,9 kg (8.6 lbs)
The WWW offers some further information and YouTube-Videos about the Motown Bass. Some German reviews can be found in Bassquarterly 05/2013 and Guitar 12/2013.
The bass was purchased from Alex Grube (pro bass player), who used it for a MTV Unplugged gig. I basically used the instrument for a couple of living-room-rehearsals. Accordingly, the Motown is in very good condition. Ernie Bass Cobalt Flats are currently on, which in my opinion suit the bass very well!
The bass comes with a matching gig bag, which is of course part of the offer.
Insure shipping is free inside Germany. For all other countries please ask for the shipping costs.
If there are any other questions: PLEASE ASK! I will try to answer everything to the best of my knowledge and belief!
