I have heard many myths about Alembics over the years. Below are a few of the most memorable:
1. Too bad they went out of business
2. I thought about buying one back when they made them by hand
3. My father has one from when each was hand-made
4. Their basses sound like guitars
5. Basses sound like synths
6. They are difficult to record
7. They weigh a ton
8. Wish they made guitars
Any of these sound familiar?

If you think that Alembic has myths, you should check out Olympic.

Myths are based on people who don't know the facts and the best one I heard when I told someone I had one was
'Didn't they just copy JD basses?'
I had a wry smile with that one!

9. They may know how to make guitar pickups, but not bass pickups.
yes i actually heard that one from someone who ripped out series electronics in a bass and put in Dimarzios if memory serves me correct.
