Congrats Gary! This is a gorgeous guitar, and I absolutely love the inlay! One of my favorite albums; and one of my favorite album covers. The top laminate is very nice as well. Great guitar!

Another beautiful masterpiece from Alembic ___

Congratulations Gary !

Blues for Allah ; On August 13, 1975 at : "The Great American Music Hall" located at 859 O'Farrell Street, in San Francisco , The Grateful Dead performed the tunes from this album for their record release celebration. I was lucky to have been there! ___ It was also the beginning of " Grateful Dead Records " The performance from that evening of music is now available as " One From The Vault "

Congratulations Gary! What a beautiful instrument! I love all the little details you had put into it. It looks great with the "Blues For Allah" inlay. The Tribute body style is my absolute favorite. Enjoy it in good health!

The "BFG" is awesome.
The Fiddler shows some absolutely stunning craftsmanship.

Awesome! When I was at Alembic dropping off my Stanley Clarke bass and seeing Stanley Clarke's actual bass, I also saw this Blues for Allah inlay in progress! A great memory for me, may this instrument create many wonderful memories for you!

Amazing. The medallion is spectacular and I love the figuring of the top. The dark streaks are very cool, lots of different textures going on. Enjoy!

Lovely instrument, as usual top class workmanship but 27 pick up settings is just too much for me!
I have enough trouble with two, two filters and Q's !!

I saw this piece in progress last August when I was at the mothership and I knew it was destined for something special.

The medallion must be seen in person to appreciate all of the intricate detail and stunning craftsmanship. I was absolutely blown away by it and decided that when I commissioned my own Alembic guitar, it would have to have a medallion.

Thanks for the inspiration and enjoy this spectacular piece for years to come!

It is truly beautiful. I'm sure you're over the moon!
I've got a Garris litho of Fiddler hanging in my office. It is my favorite piece of Dead-related artwork, so I was thrilled to see it immortalized (again) on your fantastic guitar.
