Vintage Alembic/Rick Turner(?) inlays

Postby jgraum » Tue Jul 18, 2017 8:21 am

I found this Alembic a few years ago. The electronics were gutted, but everything else was there. Amazing guitar. Longer scale.... Has very very similar neck inlays as Phil's Alembic. The last is a pic of me and Phils bass which was being worked on by a friend of mine at Gruhn Guitars/Nashville at the time.... Which leads most to believe Rick Turner had a hand in it. Mid seventies-ish. No serial. One of a kind I had a new setup put in and Waldo Buffer. Screams "Wolf"....plenty more pics around

Didn't realize they had enacted the 3rd party hosting....switched to imageshack. Hope that helps.

Very cool and impressive guitar. Did you post it on the Alembic forum?

I have. Micah said she had seen it years ago. Not any real info on it as it has no serial #....she mentioned it was probably a custom build maybe from an employee or for someone. Reminds me of Marmaduke's Alembic from Mickey's ranch. Remarkable how similar the neck inlays are to Phil's and the look of a larger body Wolf.
