this month's special

Leapin' Extra Special

It's leap year! That means one extra day in February, and one extra special this month. For orders placed in February, you can add LEDs no for charge, continuous wood backplates for no charge and a 10% discount on custom inlays.
Let's start with side LEDs for no charge. Adding these little lighted jewels will make it a snap to navigate on dimly lit stages, plus they just look cool. We inlay a tiny sterling silver circle around each one so that even when not illuminated, you still have an excellent side position marker. Choose from red, amber, green, blue, violet, or combine at will! Usually $1400, this option is no charge for orders placed during February.
Continuous wood backplates look amazing - you get to enjoy every inch of the back wood with them. They are also much lighter weight that our traditional brass plates. Every ounce counts! Usually $500 each.
The cherry on top is the 10% discount on custom inlays. This is the first time we've had a special on these works of art, each one unique and handcrafted right here in our shop. A special like this is not likely to be repeated any time soon, so for the ultimate in custom, inlays are the way to go!
Whatever you fancy, we can make it so. Start hashing out your ideas with other Alembic owners in the Dreaming section of the Alembic Club. When you're ready to start planning, call Susan or Mica at (707) 523-2611 (or email us at Your order must be received by February 29th to qualify for the February Special.
