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.
String spacing: 19 mm
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 5600 pounds but it's actually 6500 6200 euros, just conversion is different every day.
Very nice 5 string Hohner B Bass from the late 80s/early90s with a through neck and active/passive electrics.
Bass is in good condition for it's age and has had a new set of Rotosound 45-130 strings, along with a set up and electrics checked and a coat of lemon oil on the fretboard. It plays very nicely and sounds great.
It does have a few scuffs which I have tried to show mostly near the jack socket but they are only cosmetic and the neck is in excellent condition.
Only selling as I bought it on a whim thinking I needed a 5 string and it's just reminded me I don't get on with 5 strings.
Collection from Downend in Bristol preferred and can try and sort a socially distanced trial. I can look to courier at buyers cost and risk. I will include a hard case in the cost to make this safer.
I'd prefer a sale but will consider trades especially for a Barefaced compact cab or possibly other barefaced cabs or interesting 4 string basses of similar value (no black basses though as I have enough already ta).
Trades in order of interestingness;
Cold hard cash
Retrovibe Renegade or Vantage
Epiphone Thunderbird Pro (passive ones)
Nice Jazz with block and bound neck
Debating getting rid of this beauty as I really havn't taken to 5 strings the way I'd hoped and they've got NOTORIOUSLY fast necks, so someone should be making use of it - Especially since Michael Pedulla retired and isn't making them anymore. Made famous by Chris Wolstenholme from Muse. In immaculate condition + original hard case + case candy/owners manual/tools.
Debating trades + cash one way or the other for 4 string Stingray, Modulus, or Vintage Fender Jazz. Based in Staffordshire, could meet partway if needsbe.
