I am looking to finance the purchase of an Alembic 4 String...or trade for one. I have to say goodbye to 5-string basses due to a car accident and an injury to my thumb. I have had this bass for about 6 months. I purchased it from Bass Northwest for $1950 Shipped. This Q5 has the EMG pups and preamp and they cut through beautifully. There is one blemish that it came with, that you will see in the pics. Other than that this bass is in near mint condition. i am looking to get $1875 for it shipped in the CON US. More pics available upon request.
