I have to echo the person who posted before me both on the electronics as well as the resale value. If it were me, I would probably buy the guitar without pickups and get it wired by someone else. Not a huge fan of their active pickups. I am sure this is akin to blasphemy here but I have to stick by my guns.
I think you would enjoy it. They do amazing work. The one that I played had an incredible flamed Koa top. Absolutely to die for

Jerry just did not like Alembics electronics. And Jerry was not alone, can't really think of a major player who plays an Alembic guitar. Not so for the basses, apparently Alembics pickups and electronics do work for the bass, as many players have played them.
Carlos Alomar. He played with James Brown and David Bowie. Doesn't get more major leagues than that. However, his Alembic was up for sale a while back.

Yes that is exactly my point. No major players play them. Carlos Alomor, is basically an unknown player (I never heard of him), he is not known for his tone (he is not a tone god), and you can't even name another player who plays one. Just sayn...........
