For those who can't tour the mothership in person:

It is in Japanese but has many pictures of the factory and its great to see some of the steps involved in building Alembic Basses & Guitars.

Hope y'all enjoy.

Well, I'm speechless ... a Japanese people show what Alembic would update for many years... in all cases, some good pictures showing more actual work is done and how it is done. Thank you.
I recognize the koa series II I bought to Shawn on the set-top room!
For all the staff: take care of your health: o)

I remember doing a gig in Santa Rosa some years ago and bringing the Koa and my '82 Spoiler in with me to The MS. The Spoiler had an electrical issue and Mica actually offered to open up on Sunday to have it taken care of. (My gig was early Sunday). I came in Monday and while Dad fixed the bass, Mica gave me the tour. One of my great memories, to see the folks in action and where these amazing instruments are created. To actually see Ron's work area is worth the price of admission 8^)

If you ever get a chance, it is an amazing experience.
