David has been playing his Series I graphite neck guitar since 1980. Once he got
the itch for a 12-string, he knew it was time for Alembic number 2. After shopping around
playing all the acoustics he could find, he settled on neck dimensions that suited him and
ordered a Series II 12-string version of that original guitar we made for him over twenty years ago.
With every new project, new opportunities arise, and David was most intrigued about the
Ebony laminates we'd been using lately in necks. What he sought was sustain - substantial sustain -
and that is what Ebony delivers. Ebony emphasizes the fundamental as well as the
second harmonic, making the sustained sound extremely full and complete sounding, anything but typical.
