A word from a new guy.
Back in January of this year my 1979 Gibson RD Artist was stolen (highschool graduation present). With insurance $ in hand I thougth I'd give a call to Alembic and ask the girl who answered a few questions. For 30 minutes I recevied the lesson of my life about bass guitars from Susan Wickersham (Ma'am, why are you answering the phone???). I then knew it was time for me to be baptized into the Alembic experience. After 5 months of waiting for my Orion 5 string the pain of losing the only bass I've ever had has turned into the greatest musical experience of my life. Thanks Susan and Mica for all the extras, and the time you took personally for me. The cocabola fingerboard is lusious! I can play things I don't even know how to play. I have fallen in love once again with playing the bass.. New calouses and blisters attest to my endless nights of joyful practice. Look forward to what else is in store. Gibson RD what???

My Orion
