Just thought I'd share. Does anyone know who made this?

The neck-thru does have a very Alembic look to it, but the real head scratcher is that bird tailpiece. I thought that was unique to Alembic. If I were to guess, possibly an employee project

Several manufacturers have copied the bird tailpiece. Fernandes did direct rip-off Series copies in the late '70's, early 80's for example.

To my eye it's not a very pretty instrument at all regardless of who made it.

It looks more like someone has cannibalised the brass bits bits off an old alembic and made them fit.
