Just about done with this guy. There's a bit of a queue right now in setup, but your bass should be getting loaded in the next couple of weeks. There's a few stacked up in front of yours. When James is working on it, I'll get a pic snapped for you :)

Exciting, Rob! Your Alembicized Starfire thread had slipped my mind. Looking forward to seeing it.

Did this get finished? I am interested in getting alembic pickups in my starfire as well. Any info on what you did would be appreciated.

Not yet, but Mica mentioned last week that it is in the final stages, so it shouldn't be too long now.  I ended up going with Anniversary electronics with AXY pickups (the wider ones like in a SC or Brown bass), a mono/stereo switch and five pin as well.  There will be a separate volume, filter, and 3-position Q-switch for each pickup, a pickup selector, and master volume, brass nut, bridge and block, and tail piece, and new strap buttons.  There will be an inlay as well. I think that's everything. According to Edwin, Moonliner, and Wolf, Starfires with Alembic components sound amazing, and I'm certain this one won't disappoint!  :).  Good luck with your planning and ask others here for advice!

Hi Mica,

Would it be possible to put a Fatboy pickup in the bridge position and keep the AXY in the neck position?

Thanks,
Rob
