Stunning bass this!

In reality of the two Alembic basses I've been fortunate enough to have had a play about on..The Elan easily outplayed the vastly more expensive all bells and whistles Series 11, This is a lot of bass, and in Alembic price terms! An out and out bargain...GLWTS 😃👍

I have one of these Elan basses, although mine has a P/P setup not a PJ setup and they are a heck of a bass guitar.  Whilst they don't have the flexibility tone wise of the more expensive alembics they  have an unique voice  and hold their own with a lot of dignity clarity, punch, warmth, articulation and you can still get a lot of mileage with it's tonal palette. It's such a versatile bass. All the best with the sale.

Thought so.  You let me have a play on it at a bass bash.  One of the nicest fretted basses I've ever played; very even tempered and vice free.  Though as well as double Ps, doesn't yours have separate filters per pickup too? 

Amazing value at £2k, I'd presumed these things cost Megabucks.

That particular bass is an elan plus, it has a single filter only plus it has bass and treble boost/cut switches. Glad you liked playing it.

Am I going crazy. Your letting a £12000 bass go for 2 grand.? What am I missing here.

I was going to ask that... But took a look on reverb;. This is a good price but not outrageously cheap.

Why some brands hold their value so well and other don't is one of the great mysteries.  Famous players is one factor I guess perceived collectabilty, investment opportunity and fashion I guess.  Whatever, this remains a steal at £2k.

It wasn't £12k when first made. That is the replacement price now

Guess it's like Warwick dolphins.  They don't officially make them any more, but will make you one if you pay enough.
