Left-Handed guitarist parting with beloved Alembic Skylark
« on: January 16, 2015, 11:10:08 AM »
Hello everyone!
 
As a left-handed guitarist, I have always had difficulties finding a good guitar. One day at the turn of year 2000, I came across a wonderful guitar in the music store. It was a left-handed Alembic Skylark, just there waiting for me to embrace her. The story is, some fool ordered the guitar a year before and never came back. The store had to wait for a whole year before putting it for sale. It seems the poor lad lost the 10% deposit he put on it, a mere 300$!  
 
Well I had the money and the love to buy the beauty for myself. In the 15 following years, it has been my pride and my favorite guitar. In the last years, I have found myself playing less and less guitar in favor of bass, a late passion of mine. Needless to say, I haven't been able to find a lefty Alembic bass to suit my new passion. That was before I found this board! I thought I might find someone willing to trade for it. So, I will be posting a new thread in the sale/exchange section in the next day or so.
 
Keep in mind I don't do this lightly. I have several guitars and none of them look as good or sound as unique as the Alembic Skylark. Yet, if I can find someone willing to trade for a lefty Alembic bass (or buy it for the appropriate price), I will oblige. Look forward to my thread in the sale/exchange section in the next day or so. I will be browsing the board and archive to find what I'm looking for so expect my next thread soon!
