This Orion has a cool Flame Maple top with lots of variety. Looks great with the thick Purpleheart accent laminate paired with a Maple pinstripe. Doubling up on the accent laminates adds a little something special.

Instead of the usual electronics, we fitted this Orion with Essence controls. You'll get the classic Alembic tone with the low-pass filter, but with a bit more punch from the set-neck construction of the bass. Highs are slightly emphasized by the Flame Maple top.
