Check out this one on ebay. EMGs, 5 position toggle switch, unusual serial # (to say the least),lower end Alembic IF it's an Alembic at all. Starting at $3000, $5000 BIN - a little optimistic, maybe?

Bill, tgo

The body, neck and serial look like they could be an Alembic. I think the serial was just misread and should be '88'. I found this in the serial number threads.

However I think the buy it now and starting bids are way to high. If it had Alembic electronics and pickups I would think it's price should be the mid $1K range.

Yeah, the seller is smoking the drapes on that one.

The logo is pretty distinct, and the headstock lams look right, but it looks like the tailpiece was changed at some point along with the pickups.

The BIN is $12,000.

That's strange the BIN started at $5K. I guess if you get no bites at the first price it must be too low so raise it.
