Sweeping curves in the cathedral grain pattern dominate the top of this exquisite Coco Bolo top. To properly set off the Purpleheart accent laminate, we've framed it in either side with a thin Maple veneer. Juicy red center is the Vermilion body wood. All together, it's one sexy bass.

The neck dimensions are a tad smaller than on earlier Stanley Clarke models, the nut width is 1.5 inches with a fingerboard that grows to 2.15 inches at the 24th fret. Combined with the short scale and satin finished neck, it's a breeze to play.

Then there's the tone (that is why you came to Alembic, right?). Start with the clear highs from the neck woods, and support the complex tone of the Coco Bolo with the extra bass "umpf" from the Vermilion core and you've got tone to be reckoned with. It's versatile, and brutal. This bass will reveal your current skill level, which will no doubt improve quickly as you can hear any and every inconsistency, but that's good news! You'll sound better than ever.
