Item specifics

Brand: Alembic  
My Garage Sale!!

Here is a super beautiful woody guitar: Alembic Series I (I think...)  with long Scale (HIgh-end model ) Electric 6-string guitar
With 100% original parts and original black hard case (No Brand name, but it must be by Alembic)
Serial # 75 213 USA
Very Excellent condition as age!!

This "Series I" had been manufactured byAlembic in Santa Rosa California, at their early times, in 1975!!
Condition:I would like to say "8.5-9/10": It has 100% original parts in beautiful condition! 
                                                                       NO issues except only;  you need to polish (brass?) cover.
Long Scale: about 24 5/8 (from nut to bridge)                       
Weight: about 9,0 pounds
Body:WALNUT:  Few picking scratches, but totally beautiful!! original "five piece laminated"woods. Very clean, although it was already over 38 years old!!
Though-Neck: Super clean, too!! NO Issues!! NO repairs including neck joints or etc.  This though-neck make LONG TONES!!
Fingerboard: wonderful EBONY with beautiful mother of pearl inlay!!!!
Frets: original frets are left about 80%. 
                    Fretboards and inlays are also beautiful. 
Bridge: Original Ones.
Active Circuit: PF-6, all original,!! Very powerful and unique long-tones through additional blue box!! 
Pots and other small electric parts: also all original. Two pots say "475006 19-7509" another two did "47007 19-7535" Yes, pots were also made in 1975!
Pegs and other: original GOLD ones by Schaller in Excellent. 
Sounds: I had collected few more Alembic guitars for 20 years,
              This SSG is high-end model in the 1975 Alembic's lines.
because it is attached one pickup!

Case: With original Black Hard case in clean condition.  It has NO Alembic name attached on the front, but it must be by Alembic, because inside foam is fitted this guitar perfectly!!

This is over 38 year old now.
So Let me start listing at $2499 in AS IS condition.
I mean I accept NO RETURN and NO Refund.
because this is already about 38 years old. (Not NEW any more)
But I think this guiatr is still very KOOL!!!!

I will send to international,
but total packing weight is about 25 pounds. NOT lightweight.
Also, I have to pack two boxes separately : Guitar&case, plus a blue box 

I don't accepy any BUY IT NOW offers.
Please don't ask me such offers.

I have loved this Alembic guitar, 
but I have to find a good new owner for it.
Any questions, please e-mail me free!
Thanks for your understanding again and good luck!!

PS:See my other guitar collection auction!!
