Such a distinctive shape - you know instantly that this bass is both an Alembic and a Stanley Clarke model. As the only symmetrical shape in our catalog, it's unmistakeable. With a thirty-year plus association with the legendary Stanley Clarke, you know that these basses are meant to be played in the studio and can take the rigors of the road on tour.
In an effort to bring our premium quality to a broader audience, we developed the Stanley Clarke Signature Standard bass. With all the same dimensional and electronics features of the Signature Deluxe basses, we've just trimmed some of the decorative goodies to bring the price a little lower.
Short scale does not mean only for short people! Shocking as it seems, Stanley Clarke plays a short scale bass, even though he's a tall man with large hands. The frets are closer together compared to longer scales, which means these basses quite comfortable to play and makes stretching your fretting hand over a broader range. Fly even faster with the narrow taper fingerboard, new for 2008.
