Alembic Spoiler Bass 4-String Natural, 1983

Alembic Spoiler Bass 4-String Natural, 1983

Here is a rarity – an Alembic Spoiler 4-string bass, built during 1983 in Santa Rosa, California, with Maple neck-through construction, low-impedance pickups and active circuitry. Alembic, founded in early 1969 as an audio consulting firm – the Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane were key early clients – introduced the use of active electronics and low-impedance pickups in musical instruments. Alembic guitars and basses, being fully hand-made of top quality materials and with parts like the pickups, brass nuts, bridges and tailpieces being built in-house, tended to be expensive and so were used primarily by top touring and recording artists.

The Gibson LP Custom – the Les Paul  Custom – appeared in 1954 and aside from 1963 to 1968 has been part of the Les Paul Lineup since then in various forms. Aside from specialty models like the Supreme, it’s always been the top of the Les Paul line, with gold plated hardware, extra binding and more Mother of Pearl inlays.  Some versions after the 1957 introduction of the new humbucking pickup,  sported three pickups.

Fender Stratocaster HardTail Black Refinish, 1977

Fender Stratocaster HardTail Black Refinish, 1977

The Fender Stratocaster HardTail was available alongside the revolutionary and better known 1954 tremolo-equipped version, and only discontinued around 2010, due to declining sales. Many country and rhythm players preferred the Fender Stratocaster HardTail for perceived increases in ‘snap’, sustain and tonal separation, and a slightly ‘drier’ sound than comes from the lack of trem springs. While many players block or otherwise disable the Trem, hard tail Strats never sold like the trem versions have.
