Hi!
I intend to buy my friend's 6string Alembic.He claims that it is a Series II model with gold plated hardware,but he couldnt show any register card.
It looks like a trasparent blue Europa with S II electr.Or is it a Series II with a Europa body?
Could you please help me with infos regarding model and complete details,especially wether it has gold plated or not.I hope the file is still there.
Thank you very very much for your time and efforts.
Regards.
Robert

Please specify the use of the elect. pots,cause Im not sure.I suspect there is one master volume and 2 individual volumes for each pup.
Thanks again
