I have an Alembic custom guitar. 1986 strat style. serial#86E415. 24 fret, neck through, figured maple and mahogony, three pickup (2 single, one humbucker, Alembic active electronics, 5 way selector switch, Khaler locking tremelo. It's in excellent condition. Any way of determining it's value?

Welcome to the club. The "E" in your serial number usually means it's an Electrum, but your description of a Strat like shape and neck through construction sounds more like a California Special. Either way fair market value is probably in the $1600-$2500 range, depending on condition. Pictures would very much help in identifying the guitar and determining value.

I think Electrums are neck-throughs. 86 I think means it is a little after the usual run of Electrums and may well be a custom made one for a specific buyer.
Yes, pictures please!

Electrums are, indeed, neck throughs. My first Alembic was an Electrum. I meant to write that the strat shape and kahler sounds like a California Special. Looking forward to seeing some pics.
