Thanks Mica, looking awesome! With just the two wood species not a typical Alembic look but I love the result so far.

I'm looking forward to seeing it with the wood finish and hearing it!

The Ebony accent veneers and neck laminate look great with the Maple body and top.

You are gonna love what all that maple does for your sound.
The sound of Alembic is medicine for the soul!

I've been meaning to share a picture of your bass with some finish on it. It's absolutely stunning!

Thanks Mica! What a striking piece of flame. It certainly deserves to be "framed."
