Just a few shots of my in-progress Alembic. Another hippie sandwich masterpiece from the folks in Santa Rosa. The wood combination is burl walnut/maple/purpleheart/maple/mahogany/maple/purpleheat/maple/walnut. I was going to go with a flame maple core like on my Scott Walker and the Tiger that Leo is building me. But I've found that the Alembics tend to be a little brighter sounding as it is and I was afraid that a maple core would push things a bit too far. Plus as a Les Paul player, I've always loved the warmth of a mahogany body. The electronics are one of their simpler setups. It's two pickups each with a volume and filter control as well as an on/off/bright switch. I'll post more as I get them. Here it is so far:
Dang! That's another sweet guitar you've got going on there
Are you going with the standard Alembic electronics? Cool inlay?
