For sale my beloved Alembic serie 1 bass from 1978. The “Stradivarius” of bass guitar :)
The deepest and most subtle bass sound(s) I have ever heared.
This one is a particular good one, perfectly set up with a very low action for a very fast playing.
Normal signs of ware for a 34 years old instrument with a very nice patina, I particulary like the beautifull wood color.
Medium scale, which is Mark King’s favorite configuration as long scale is unconfortable to play in a stand up position for most of people.

It's the real Alembic without any comparaison with a signature model which I don't like.

I need £2900 very best price.

I live in Paris but I come very often in London.

Here is my cell in case : +33 6 63113651

Cheers

I can happily vouch for this gent, having previously done business together on a fretless Wal. Lafrite (aka Jean-Baptiste) is a decent guy who has a good eye for a classy bass
