    Well, we all know about some recent goings-on, but I now have a question for you guys familiar with old Alembics.

    I've gotten two old ones (a '74 and a '78) recently that required major work to make "right."

    My question: what are some of the problems that one frequently encounters when dealing with older (say from the start of production to '79) Alembic basses?

    I've found some very serious neck problems. What do some of you guys "in the know" when it comes to older Alembics think? I'm trying to learn more about these basses.

    Many thanks!

    Take care,
