What's this guitar thread doing sneaking around in our area?
Personally I wouldn't buy an Alembic guitar. But I'd sure love an Alembic bass!
Gotta agree with Edwin about the Starfire. I kinda hate the ergonomics of mine... I'm not a tall guy and find the large, non-countoured body forces me into a slightly awkward position, and the neck doesn't really lend itself to fast playing... But the tone, wow! And I like that it's different than what everybody else is doing.... the hippie festivals are full of 34" or 35" scale, active-electronic modern basses (Modulus, Ken Smith, Carvin, Pedulla, Ibanez, Yamaha, etc etc) and they all sound pretty much the same to me.
