I while ago there was a used alembic sitting in the local guitar store, i played it, got a fresh pair of pants and played it more, it was like butter. Now at this time i had just recently purchased my G&L tribute L2500, so i wasnt in the market (im broke!), but it was fun to fiddle with. The price tag was around $1800 Canadian, which is around $1500 american. i didnt really look at the condition, but there was no visible damage/nicks. Cant remember what kind it was, although i think i remeber the words F-1 series, but it doesnt look like the one series on their site. It looks more like either an orion, rogue, excel or europa. In any case, just out of curiousity (im not crying over spilt milk, im broke!) was this a good deal (probly couldve haggled them down further) and how much of a deal was it?
