Welcome!

These can take awhile to get processed- if you'll post a picture, we can take a look and get some educated guesses going for you. based on the serial number, it was built in 1993....

That's a cool looking birdseye top!!

My guesses based on picture:
birdseye maple top w mahogany body (and a seriously amazing grain- almost quilted- on that elbow contour)
Epic electronics- V/P/B/T

Somebody added that ramp after they got it... hopefully it's just double sided taped or something....

Mica gets to these requests when she has time, but sometimes it takes awhile. If you get a chance, explore the forum a bit more and create a thread for this beauty in the showcase section!

Thanks! I'm very happy with it. Honestly the best bass I've ever played on.

I did! They were very patient as I plucked around on half a dozen or more extremely nice instruments before I narrowed it down to the Alembic.

Now that I've perused the forums a bit, I now realize that the back of the instrument is as important to people as the front, so here's the shot:1993 Bird's Eye Maple Epic 4 String rear
