A beautiful guitar indeed!  I love the contrast between the Coco Bolo and the Maple.

Alembic on Instagram is the best thing that happened to social media.  But it has to continue to be shop shots and not just of the month kind of stuff.  
The more in progress the better.

Thanks! I share all kinds of photos, there's sure to be more finished instruments and random stuff around the shop. Here's a few of recent posts:

Not for Rami - this one has ever more Ebony than his basses. I think it's only the second instrument with Ebony as the primary neck wood. It's gonna be very special

How do you expect it to sound like, Mica?
Not just a bass, this is an Alembic!

Well, it's an Essence, so it won't be as heavy as it could be. What I expect is ridiculous fundamental sustain, massive bass response, and a weigh-in of about 11.5-12 pounds.

I?m smiling at the wedge under the clamp. You got unique materials laying around ? you make unique wedges ? with accent laminates. I love the details.
 
(ps. This could be a novelty sale item ? everybody has a door wedged open ? now you can do it with style. I?m just saying?)

+1 on the shots from the shop. If I ever make it back out to California, I'd love to visit there... *eventually* I'd get to the showroom, but the shop is where the cool stuff happens!

My wife started an Instagram page for our farm; I am following Alembic now!  :-D

But what do the hashtags do?
I can't put it on a pin under a glass. . . :-/

You can click on the hashtags and see other pictures marked with the same hashtag. Just click around, you can start at one of Mica's posts and go off on a journey through all kinds of hashtags. Some hashtags have thousands of posts (#alembic has almost 5000 right now!), others may only have a few. When you post your own pictures you can have fun coming up with hashtags too.
