Been there-done that, same old same old. Does this sound like you when you're searching for that something extra special in a bass? If so, your search stops here! GTRstore President Steve Pisani has logged many miles, in many small towns checking out off–the-beaten-path music stores and private collections. Now here, fresh off the trail comes this one-of-a-kind 6 String Alembic Bass. This multiple natural wood tone jewel is guaranteed to make you the envy of 6 string maestro's everywhere! The body is constructed from flame Maple, Walnut and Mahogany. The neck, a masterful 11 piece union of laminated Maple with Ebony strips, is worth the price of admission by itself. This thru the body model will have you racing across the fingerboard effortlessly courtesy of the super slim design. The difficult higher register will easily be accessible and at your command thanks to the ultra deep cutaway and sculpted heel. The 2.22" nut width, 36" scale, 24 frets, mother-of-pearl inlay, brass nut and Ebony fingerboard will ensure smooth sailing as you traverse your sonic soundscape from bone rattling lows to shimmering harmonics. And just so you don't get lost on your travels, flip your toggle switch and turn on the red LED lights that decorate the topside of the fingerboard. Can we say………conversation starter?!! Anchoring all things ‘thunderous' are Alembic Gold Tuners, Alembic Brass Bridge and Custom Brass Stop Piece.

Can you hear me now? The original Alembic pickups have been replaced with 2 Fodera Custom pickups that take slap, funk or fusion to a whole new level. To maintain control you get 2 volume and 1 tone on the contoured front. If you choose to restore this beauty to original specs the original Alembic pickups and electronics are provided. Strap locks will keep things hanging tight and your purchase will be road tested protected by a Custom G&G Guitar Case. The condition is excellent. There is some wear on the bridge from playing and the neck  will require periodic adjustment. Right from the tour bus to GTRstore. Hanging in our showroom now and awaiting its newest adventure. Price includes case.
