Caught this little diddy of Jack and the Airplane playing on the Smothers Bros show. Not a great view but some pretty good sounds. I think this is Alembic #1 but not completly sure. Any help on this would be appreciated.

Can't be #1, 1968 is too early for that.

That is a heavily modified Guild. Looks like that thing as 27 knobs on it!

According to "The Long Story" the Starfire was modified in 1969. So I checked the Smothers Brothers episode archive and it would appear that this film clip was taped on November 1, 1968. So I'm guessing the modifications must have been done pretty close to that time. Unfortunately there are no close ups of the bass, but lots of nice shots of Grace. Nice video! Thanks!

Well I finally got around to looking at this clip again on my media friendly laptop. Amazing what a little resolution will do. Pretty obvious this wasn't an Alembic but when I first viewed the video it was as if they were playing in a poorly lit studio and all you could see was outlines. My bad....doh! You are right Dave nice shots of Grace!!
