Spot on! I too was flipping channels and only had it on long enough to see that the bassist was indeed playing an Alembic. No logo on the peg head, but bird tailpiece in place. Good catch!

Come on Rich... admit it. You have "An Officer and a Gentleman" on VHS, Beta, DVD, and Blue Ray.

No logo, bird tail-piece - could be a Kawai copy.

Craig; I don't think so. The best shot appears at 5:12, and the lower horn and cutaway don't look right. Jeff lays down some nice licks!
