I'm selling my 1975 Alembic Series 1 short-scale bass. I bought it circa 2000, from the original owner. It's in good shape and plays very well. Since I bought it, it's only been played in my studio, not gigged with. Here are the specifics of this particular bass:
Woods used: the top is koa, the back is zebrawood, the core is maple, the neck is maple/walnut, the fingerboard is ebony, and the veneers are birch and rosewood
Inlays: mother of pearl
The scale length is 30 3/4"
The Alembic electronics are the PF-6 Clarostat
Here's what's included:
1975 Alembic Series 1 short-scale bass, serial # 75-215
DS-5 power supply
DS-5R rack mount power supply
5 pin cable
Anvil road case
Original standard case
Original Alembic brochure, warranty card, and certificate, which has been signed by all of the builders--including Rick Turner and Ron Wickersham
The only small issue is that the handle is missing on the standard case, not the road case--but it can easily be replaced.
Shipping is $300, due to the fact that the guitar and road case need to be shipped in two separate boxes--and the road case is 35 pounds.
From my smoke-free home.
I have additional photos, which I couldn't post on this listing. Serious bidders, please contact me, and I'll be happy to email those photos to you.
Shipping to the domestic US only; please, no international or Canadian bidders. Bidders with zero feedback or more than 2 negative feedback, contact me before bidding, or I will cancel your bid. Payment is due within 24 hours of auction end, by Paypal only. Local pickup is OK; we are in Austin, TX.

I've taken more photos including the inside of the electronics cavities and the back of the headstock. In doing so I noticed some small finish cracks below the tuners in the back - they are small and I don't think that they are of any consequence but I don't want anyone to have any surprises. I have included pictures - please feel free to email me for the link, I have not been able to figure out how to put the link in the auction.
