That is simply spectacular!
Wonder if this is standard piccolo tuned (octave higher)
29" instead of 30" scale! Geee Bass or Tar!
Whatever Alembic may have out done themselves on this one! (Is that possible?)

I'm always very impressed with someone who can envision what is for the rest of us a 'what if?' axe, then actually get something built that is a useable and a uniquely different variation on the building blocks we all work from. Bravo.

Of course, who else could build this and have it come out completely formed and ready to go?

Gotta get with Susan about my autoharp/cello doubleneck next week . . . .
