If you're looking for a good, solid, all round performer, this little Orion is your bass. Bubinga top is just lovely, with plenty of figuring and swirly bits for the eyes. Set off with a double accent, it's got the look. We've also paired it with Abalone oval inlays on the Ebony fingerboard.

At less than 9 pounds, this is a light-weight by Alembic standards. The Orion body shape balances great with its long upper horn - no neck diving here! This is a bass you can play and play and play.

Standard Orion controls include volume and pan controls with a bass and treble cut and boost for fast access to a myriad of useable sounds.
