I just received my new (new to me) 1983 Spoiler! It feels sooooo gooood, the neck feels....just right - and the sounds I can make are fantastic...and the Music I can make after I got over my initial bursts of joy and really played her is fantastic....(Music as how Victor describes her)...
...anyways...she goes well with my 1976 Series I...makes for a great compliment...I never thought that I would have two Alembic basses...wow...it's also cool that my 11 year-old son wants to play bass too...he'll get some cool basses someday....
1983 32" Scale, Quilted Maple Spoiler
another one close up
The two brothers together...
The whole Family ('83 Spoiler, '76 SI, '73 Gibson EB-O, my son's '07 Epiphone EB-O)
And now....the extended Family (my Banner upright and my son's school rental upright)

Tom -that is a great looking family.
"it's also cool that my 11 year-old son wants to play bass too...he'll get some cool basses someday...."
You mean he isn't all over your Alembics yet?
My son is also a bassist and when ever he comes over to visit I have to pry my Distillate out of his hands!

Tom, thanks for re-posting. We have a serious gremlin that does this once in a while. It has not been traced to any particular incident and is completely intermittent.

Nice collection Tom! The Spoiler is gorgeous! It amazes me the condition of all the older Alembics I have seen on this forum. They all look like new! Alembic owners are rare individuals who understand & appreciate quality & know how to take care of their instruments!
