Oh my goodness, what a joy for the eyes!
I noticed you added another Strap pin on the other side of Omega cut, how's the result? How different does it balance? Are your basses 34 or 32?

Thanks for the comments.
The strap pin on the other side of the omega cut was already there when I purchased the basses (serie 1 and 2) therefore I do not know if it's originally like this on these models.
The serie 2 is a 32 and the serie 1 and 20th anniversary are 34.  
As I'm only 1,8M tall and I might admit that you should get used to the 34 bass, I purchased double strap from GruvGear (http://www.gruvgear.com/duostrap) and now I do not have any more problem with back ach and the basses are well balanced !
Thanks again for your comments.

Great, thanks for sharing the pictures. Any action shots or video clips with the bass being played?
The sound of Alembic is medicine for the soul!
