We recently hosted a group of beginning guitar students from Caesar Chavez Elementary School at the Guild factory in Oxnard, California. The 8th graders had a chance to tour the factory and learn how we make our guitars, from sourcing wood to final assembling, and everything in between. After touring the factory, the students got […]

Ultimate cool-kid Joe from New Jersey asked the Make-a-Wish Foundation for his very own Phil Lesh bass. We were so excited and honored to be a part of the process by donating a Starfire Bass II, which Alembic then modified to match Lesh’s iconic Grateful Dead-era bass. While we’d like to say that the Starfire […]
We were so excited to take part in SXSW, last week’s film, tech and music festival in Austin, Texas. When our friends at She Shreds asked us to help out at their annual showcase, it was a no-brainer to send a Jetstar. She Shreds always puts together a killer line-up and we couldn’t wait to see what […]
We started 2018 off with a bang at the Winter NAMM show in Anaheim. Electrics, acoustics, basses–we had something new for every type of player in our new, expanded booth space.

“My first playing impression of the D-55 is that it’s one powerful guitar—one that will hold its own with other acoustic instruments,” writes Acoustic Guitar Magazine’s Adam Perlmutter. That’s a first impression we’ll take! Check out Adam’s full take on the D-55 here. See more from the D-55 here. Keep scrolling to hear more.
Premier Guitar featured Clemens Rehbein of Milky Chance and his vintage ’65 Starfire. Other than the pickguard, which Rehbein removed, and the replaced bridge, the Starfire is in original condition. “She is and sounds unique–but not weird–and has the perfect sound for my style of music: warm and woody, but still tight and in your […]
It’s another ringing endorsement from the team over at Vintage Guitar magazine: “The D-55 is surprisingly loud even for a dreadnought. And, it’s not just loud, but big-sounding–there’s plenty of bass without sacrificing chime. Chords are clear and balanced even when digging in, and the neck is very comfortable. Overall, the D-55 is an impressive […]

When asked how the Bluesbird plays, reviewer Bob Cianci writes, ‘Effortless’ comes to mind immediately. This is a very resonant instrument that sounds bright and lively unplugged. Single-string riffing was a breeze, the intonation was right on target, and plugged in, […]
