Hello...I need to put my Alembic on my insurance policy. I haven't seen one like it, so I don't have any idea as of its worth. Any help is appreciated..

I have a replacement as new policy for my instruments and for the Alembics I've used the quote generator. But because of the cost of that the series instruments came up with the insurance company requested that I get a written valuation to back that up so I contacted Alembic.

Unfortunately that does make the premium painfully high.

I don't think the quote generator would be accurate for this guitar as it seems to have been stripped of its Alembic electronics. That devalues it quite a bit. A used series guitar in good condition will usually sell in the neighborhood of $2500-$3500. Without the electronics I would estimate knocking at least $1K off this range.

Bill, tgo
