    Mmmm...knobs...switches...brass...blue...

    The body style is a bit outlandish for some though, including me. I bet it sounds great though.
     
  7. There's two Alembics I've liked, one that was a doubled 8 string with a VERY nice wood top..

    and..

    THIS ONE! It's gorgeous!!! That is one of the BEST quilted tops I've ever seen! :)

    bet it costs 10x more than it's looks.. ;)

    [eedit] $5, not bad for an alembic.. still wouldnt pay that tho :bassist:
