why Alembic instruments got that name? I mean, most musical instruments are named after the luthier's last name (Fender, Zon, Pedulla...), others have music-related names (MusicMan) and others are a corporate name (Yamaha). But what the hell has an alembic to do with a bass? (maybe the Wickersham family also produces alcoholic beverages along with basses?) I looked in their website but couldn't find an answer. Just curious.
