LOVE the five interlocking logos!

By the way, I'm putting all my Alembics up for sale - I picked up this sweet MIM Squire Strat.

Awesome!

Where can I get one of those "Olympic" basses?

Are they as good as Alembics?

Congrats to the committee on their new bass! I'm wondering how the Olive wood used for the humx coil in the pickups will affect the tone.

One of my buddies just texted me after seeing this on Facebook and told me:"Dude I told you it was Olympic, you keep calling it wrong" :/
Thanks Mica, you just ruined years of hard work trying to correct people hahaha.

Glad you guys enjoyed it! It's always fun to think up these things.

Paul-the "secret inlay" is just what we call an inlay on the back of the peghead.

You can't fool us, Bill; we know Squiers were never MIM! But I'll take #10 & the 12er to help you with your MII dream.
