hello there folks, Im trying to find an original set of alembic pickups, the early design pickups that were held in with just two screws-not to be confused with the more popular black soapbar style that use 4 screws. Anywayz, let me know! thanks

Hi.

A couple of sets of vintage P-style pups have come up on e-bay recently.

They look to have been sold for around 150-200 (which doesn't seem like a bad price considering how much a new set of pups on their own will cost).

Hope this helps.

I have this creepy feeling that this is one of Michael Delacerda's that fell victim to Katrina.

George the other guy (the taller one) is "Sir David T" himself. SALUTE
David is whom we must thank for getting the Dallas Alembic Gatherings rolling. He suggested the first one.

Georgie Boy

The bass in the picture that Keavin posted was one of my Alembics that was destroyed. When I evacuated before the flood, I was only able to take 2 basses. I took my 1972 Alembic with me (serial number 16) and the graphite necked Series II in the paradoxical picture.
