Alembic Custom Series II
This is a very special and esoteric bass. Custom built from top to bottom with a unique body design and gorgeous exotic woods. Each pickup has 5 separate controls: volume, variable Q, tone filter, bass, and treble. Given the stereo nature of this instrument. having this kind of control is rather important when each pickup can be run to a separate amplifier. Alembic has long been regarded as the top exotic bass builder and this one is an unbelievably beautiful and rare example of the Wickersham's vision. It's also important to note that the current replacement value for this bass is over $37,000.00. Below is a link to the bass, featured on its own gallery page on the Alembic website.
