I've heard somewhere that the Alembic wizards keep a template of every body shape they've ever made. Is that true?

If yes, when (finally - maybe some time in the future... sigh) ordering my dream custom 5 I'd definitely go for that:

It seems to be a "simplified" Balance K variation, simple and classic, and VERY Alembic :-) I totally love it. This is my perfect bass shape.

Has there been any other Alembic made with this body shape?

If I remember correctly, there are no special templates for the point or omega shapes: the tail-end gets shaped by hand. There have been a couple of point-less variations - off the top of my head, people have posted pictures of a 20th Anniversary bass and a Series II guitar (based on the 20th Anniversary guitar shape) here at the Club.
