Alembic Further – 5A Quilted Maple

Serial Number: F14618
Weight: 8 lbs 4 oz

Modelled after one of our earliest guitar experiments (later known as “Wolf”), the Further guitar is quite simply one of the coolest little guitars around.

The semi hollow contruction helps keep the weight down to a managable 8ish pounds. The small body balances well on a guitar strap and likewise when playing seated.

Equipped with extremely flexible electronics that bring you from robust lows to clear and distinct highs, the Further doesn’t disappoint in the tone department. On the contrary, this instrument allows you to hear even the most subtle of your techniques, and encourages you to develop your own voice.

Can a guitar take you further? We think you’ll agree that it can.
