this month's special

All the wood, half the price

It's the whole forest of wooden goodness on special this month. You like Quilted Maple, you got it for half the regular price. Coco Bolo more to your liking? It's half off too! Fancy a top of Burl Amboyna (like this month's Featured Custom) for your new Alembic? You can splurge and get the top and back for the price of the top only. You can see the available premium woods on the Wood Samples page.
The woods not only enhance the beauty of an Alembic guitar or bass, but also can influence the natural voice the instrument produces. For instance, Flame Koa is a great when you want a warm, mellow sound. Think jazz guitar or fretless bass and you've got the picture. On the other end of the tonal spectrum lives the Maples. Soft Western Maples, like the ones we use for body laminates, are readily heard for their bright tone and distinctive "shimmer" as sustained notes decay.
We'll help you learn what wood will be best suited for the overall sound of your next Alembic. Please contact us if you have any questions about the May Special.

Other important details:
The monthly special is a custom option offered for free or at a reduced price. It applies only to new orders, not modifications. Custom electronics and Quilted Coco Bolo do not qualify for monthly specials.
The special has an expiration date. Once the new special is selected, the old special is void. There is no overlap.
When you're in the market for a custom instrument, check our special every month.
