stunningly beautiful Pierre-Yves.  That picture from the side showing the core wood with the two extra thick maple laminates is my favorite.  
 
I know it's been a difficult process to sit through, but that bass is insanely beautiful- and from all accounts thus far, it sounds better than it looks.   I'm sure the joy it will bring over the coming months and years will far outweigh some of the hand-made quirks associated with the symmetry of the bass.  Enjoy

I'm looking forward to hearing the audio and watching your video's with them when you find the time.

The strap buttons don't look centered.

Yeah, and some parts of the darker wood, has lighter area... What's with that Alembic!
 
Y'all got to tell those trees to get it right...cause 'P' will check it!
 
 
Peace and Love,

Nice Family shots Pierreyves. I really like the maple balance K.

Hi, here are the asked ABW sound record I did some minutes ago. The bass is ADGC tuning, the sound is recorded with the direct output post eq. I use both pickups with some filters variations on the bridge pickup.
Enjoy!

Next time I will do something with the digitech stereo jamman, because it's not easy to play alone like that

I know you originally wanted gold hardware, but I think the chrome REALLY looks nice with the woods.  This is probably my favorite Alembic.

I have several MP3 readers, but the link does not open. I can open your website & got to your Alembic pictures, but I don't see a link for the MP3's.

Thanks  I don't have any video on youtube, not really interesting for me, maybe when my band will be complete and stable with a keyboard player who stay more than 2 monthes  The big difficulty is to find a keyboard player in Geneva...
