Description

This has got to be one of the most desirable of Alembic Basses ever produced, the Short Scale Bass made famous by none other than my mentor, Stanley Clark, whom I personally learned every lick from Clarke’s “School Days” album back in 1976, this is an early production bass, its made with a wonderful combo starting w/front & back laminations of the most desirable choice of woods, striped Zebrawood  w/a 5 piece body & center core, its neck-thru body is constructed from 7 pieces of maple & purple heart, its front & back laminations of its headstock are a matched set of Zebrawood, its got stock Series II electronics w/its dummy-hum center pickup that go thru its DS-5 power supply making what most people say is the ultimate bass tone on Earth, I can agree, its got its share of play time & patina having a few chips & weatherchecking all over, new list base price is in excess of $26K. today, otherwise she’s rather excellent overall & 100% original, its power supply & its power cord are all in its pocket in its original blue tolex hard case.
