I just signed up to the board. I have ordered a Spyder Bass, with a couple of added options. I have owned a few basses since 1977 but this will be my first Alembic!! After a period of not playing very often, this year I have found myself playing a couple times a week with various local groups and it has reignited my passion to learn and play. Since I will be 50 next April, what better way to celebrate this milestone than to mark it with the purchase of an Alembic!!

Welcome to the forum and a very happy half-a-hundred! I, too, gave myself an Alembic for my 50th. Best birthday present ever! You'll never regret it, other than you may soon find all your other instruments gathering dust!

Bill, the guitar one

Welcome Paul I hope you enjoy your birthday present,. Celebrating the half century with an Alembic is a pretty popular sport here. Here is the one I got myself for my 50th birthday. Well I didn't have it custom made but when I saw it on the Custom Gallery I decided I wanted one just like that for my 50th then last year the owner decided he no longer wanted it so it became my Dragon Magic 50th Birthday present

If you have never played an Alembic bass before you are in for one heck of a birthday treat....!!!

Paul -
Nothing is finer than 50 (especially witha new bass)!

Enjoy it and welcome to the club.

hmmmm - 50 is around the corner for me, maybe I should start planning for something special . . . .

Wow thanks for all the welcoming greetings!! The more I look around the website and this board I realize Alembic and its community is more friendly and personal than I imagined!! Not to mention, the more I look at the various builds, I realize the quality of the instruments is beyond what I had imagined as well. I can't wait. Mica will be starting a FTC thread - I didn't know about the FTC threads until yesterday - what a cool thing that is!
