I'll bet he had to "shell" out some bucks for this one. But I'm sure it's worth every penny to own the first "hippie omelet" from Alembic! A truly stunning instrument - I saw it in person at the factory - it really is all it's "cracked" up to be. (rim shot).

Bill, tgo

OK All the yolks gotta stop! (JK)

I've already added the 1600x1200 wallpaper to my sequencing desktop at work (Along with the last 5 features and my band shots)

This is one "Egglembic" we hope NEVER cracks....that would be "fowl".

From this thread, I don't even need to look! I was watching this one come together through the FTC, and the inlay work is fantastic. Congratulations on another masterpiece!

Gregg's going to have to add "Little Dead Rooster" to the repretoire if they don't already do it.

Oh, I'll look anyway...

One thing Gregg forgot is, well if it were me that EGG would've been made from 24KT gold.

That'd be a goose egg wouldn't it?

Not this one, I love it just as it is.

The background photo for this guitar looks like a deserted world famous Petaluma chicken ranch, stomping grounds of the Odd Bodkins were-chicken!

I thought about getting in on this whole chicken and egg pun thing, but I had to scramble to come up with a halfway funny line. Tried it out on my wife. She didn't laugh, so I figured it wasn't all it was cracked up to be. Of course, not being one to put all my eggs in one basket, I came up with a couple other jokes. Unfortunately, they didn't go over easy either. I used to be funny. Apparently now I'm just a shell of my former self. Guess what it boils down to is I oughta just let it go and eggs-it gracefully.

Oh, and that Featured Custom. Purdy! But I'm sure he got it built eggsactly to his specifications.

Seems to me that most of those cracks were poached, James - but it's up there with the tall, dark, and handsome bit.
