Hello from Canada
« on: May 17, 2018, 09:24:52 PM »
Hi everybody,
New member from Vancouver checking in. I'm pleased as punch to be able to join this group. I have just acquired my first (and hopefully not last) Alembic instrument, a 1986 Exploiter guitar. I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Mica for her help in getting me here. I tried many times to log in, but always received the dreaded 403 Forbidden error on the webpage. She assured me that it would be looked into and voila! Here I am. Thanks for straightening it out.

I'm looking forward to learning a lot about Alembic and the fine folks that build and play these beautiful and unique instruments.

Rock on!

Welcome... and, well, we'll all be glad to see some pics of your new baby too ;-D
Not just a bass, this is an Alembic!

Welcome!
I used to think I was indecisive, but now I'm not so sure.

Congrats on the new guitar! My first Alembic was an Exploiter bass - great place to start!

Thanks for the warm welcome everybody. I'm learning a lot about Alembic, and I'm starting to realize just what a special and unique brand it is. Also, what a great little online community we have here. I'm looking forward to learning more and hopefully inching towards a custom build someday. Hey, a guy can hope!

To those that wanted to see some pics, here's a couple.
