This is one of my all-time favorite Alembics.  The shape, electronics, inlays, woods, everything---absolutely ideal.

I had a bunch of stuff typed in here, but since it is the ebony bass being yakked about, primarily, I cut it out and will paste it there.

Very nice instrument. What's the scale length and asking price?

Deposit was put into my account last night, so done deal is called on the transfer of custodianship of this wonderful classic bass from myself to Major Tom - Wow, how fitting!  She was a bit dirty after sitting in her case for almost two years, so I polished/waxed it up yesterday, and it is still a truly beautiful, fine specimen of an Alembic S II.  It is time for it to move on to someone who can play it regularly and appreciate it more than just as eye candy.  No picture of this bass has ever captured its beauty of such beautiful reds in its wavy flamed walnut lams and deeply darkened maple from its thirty years of playing in smoky bars and stages all over the country.  I will miss this bass immensely, but I do feel good about it going to a good home.  Gig the crap out of this bass, Tom, and I know she will not let ya down.  Packing will start up at the end of this week.  So long to yet another great love of my life.

Thomas,
 
Your post resonates pretty deeply with me- beautiful sentiment for a beautiful bass.  All the best to Major Tom and Thomas and I hope the future brings great things for all three individuals (Tom, Thomas and the bass).

This bass will have the love and care for the rest of my life. I will post pics of her in action onstage once I get this gorgeous instrument in my hand, and just think I am only one payment behind in my mortgage.

Not a problem.  I am excited about seeing it on stage again.  Take your time.  It is sitting here safely awaiting its trip to Florida.  Yes, Christmas will come, mortgage or not . . .

Final payment has been sent, so I will be packing Goldielocks up this weekend and sending her off real soon.  Bummer . . . . .

Two basses that have a place in my heart over all the years here have been Bonnie and Goldielocks.  Thomas, I should have pulled that trigger years ago... May she be well in her new life.

I miss this bass. Such a class act when she was setup properly, nice tone on everything.  A classic of a classic.  I hope you are gigging her ass off.
