Eastwood SP-I – Natural Walnut
For years, Eastwood’s customers have been asking them to release a tribute based on one of Alembic’s incredible designs of the past. So, they thought if they’re going to do one, they may as well go way back to where it all began.
The Standard Point was the first guitar design that Alembic offered, and its shape can best be described as nothing short of iconic. If you had the good fortune of seeing David Bowie live between the 70’s and 2000, chances are you would have seen one of these guitars in the very capable hands of Carlos Alomar. In fact, he has confirmed that his original Alembic guitar to be his favourite, having been “played on every Bowie album and tour since back in the “Earl Slick- station to station” Days.
Eastwood loves this guitar, and wants to bring you a tribute at a substantially lower cost. Their SP-I Guitar will pay tribute to the original in great detail, although They have decided to update the electronics to the exceedingly popular on-board effects loop as seen on their Wolf and Tiger guitars. The guitar is manufactured in Eastwood’s top Korean factory and has a true neck-thru design, not a bolt-on or set neck. You will NOT be disappointed in the quality!
