The new Alembic Excel bass.

You know Alembic crafts the basses by which all others are measured. You know quality isn’t cheap, but with the new Alembic Excel, quality is affordable. The Excel is a study in sweeping curves – the body parts literally flow into one another, forming a comfortable and visually balanced shape, capped with a gleaming flame maple top.

Fitted with our “Fat Boy” wide aperture pickup, the Excel exudes rich bass tone, with plenty of mid and high range frequencies available through our active electronics.

With a retail price of just $1750, there’s really nothing to get in the way of you and your new Alembic Excel.
