No just a regular boring old water heater. I wonder if the China tariffs have caught up with me on this one.

I have caught myself cruising Reverb for an Alembic 4 string that I DEFINITELY DO NOT need.

Oh wait...I sold my fretless...maybe I DO NEED...

I blame Bapu.

I would like a tankless. Where I live there are no basements and all pipes are overhead.  You have to wait minutes for warm water to make it to the sink.

@kitekrazy would you consider this as a faster way to "heat up"?

 

LOL I'd feel more safe locked in a closet with every virus known to man than consider this thing.

This is exactly my model and year (my wood, on the left, is bit richer looking though).

Looking for a first semi-hollow body jazz guitar. Reality TV not virtual.

Check out Eastman & Peerless too. I'm a lefty so my choices get narrowed down, picked up this Eastman. Nice 175-ish vibe for a decent price.

Seriously though - that looks a lot like what Stanley Clarke was playing at the time.

What is the sound like compared to a MM StingRay or other basses we might be more familiar with?

Is this Instagram reality or does that neck look exceptionally long? Like those Sudanese women with the rings job?

Alembics are normal 34" scale unless ordered with a different scale.  The body shape is intended to allow easier access to the frets past the 12th fret.  That don't confront me none, as any bass player knows there is no money past the 7th fret anyway.

Alembics are, IMO, in sound class all their own.

My Series I has the Rickenbacker like stereo out feature (both pups have their own discrete output). I send those to my Alembic F2B preamp (2 channel Fender Showman inspired design, IIRC).

The Series I and Series II are active electronics.

I'm a big Stanley Clark fan and that is what prompted me to seek out my Alembic bass. I paid $700 along with Rickenbacker for it in 1977.

Eve in my roughest financial times (and I've had a couple) I've never even given a thought to selling my Alembic. My son will inherit it along with all my other basses and guitars when I leave this life.

Why don't you accept my phone calls? It's Bapu Jr.
