Producer & Studio Owner, Sydney Aust.
Purchased six strg gtr in 1973 s/n074.
Traded up to custom 7strg in 1977. Has same
s/n. Maple AAAAA top/back, Ebony f/b. SeriesII
electronics. More suitable now for recordings
because of CD/DVD technology. I use it direct to ProTools and "AMPlify" it later. At gigs I use a Boogie.

G'Day, from Tennessee.
Robbo, it's really good to have you here, as Alembic GUITAR players are even more rare than we bass guys.
Don't be a stranger, hope to hear from you. Watch the posts, and 'chime in'.

Welcome aboard Robbo!
I have to agree with Joey, an Alembic guitar player is rare. Now for the obligatory statement: "We want to see pics"! It sounds like you have a fascinating guitar there;) Just beware of people wearing stockings......

Hello to everyone. Thanks for being so nice.
Yes it's a 7strg. AAAAA Maple front/back. Ebony neck
Paduak laminations. Originally had red LEDs but I took 'em out. Neck's quiet narrow but playable. Lowest action of any guitar I''ve ever played. .10 - .70 gauge strgs.
Also have Alembic input module somewhere. Electronics were replaced in 1990. This axe sustains like fuck!!! The low-end rivals most basses!!!
Only gtr I own that can be plugged into ProTools directly. I use Amplitube to get the atypical gtr colors.
RE: Pics. Haven't got a really good one but I'll try to upload something soon..... The gtrs character is nothing like a Strat or LP, although it can imitate them. Basically, they're too expensive for most musos. I have a number of compositions where the gtr is featured, dating from 1980. If anyone would like to hear a selection I might be able to arrange it.
