Actually the medium scale (what Alembic calls short scale) is not that rubbery, especially when you put Pyramid Flats on it. I played that bass throughout the '80's with D'Addario Half Rounds on it. It's just too heavy for this Geezer to hold for three hours today. There's a half pound of brass under the bridge, it's kinda neck heavy, but it's one hell of a bass. The attention getter is the LED's in the neck. Some people just don't know what to make of that when they see it.
