Here is what I found out about your bass:

serial number: 85D3730
model name: Distillate
model number: DMB4
top: Bocate
accent: none
body: Mahogany
neck: 5-piece Maple and Purpleheart
scale: 32" medium
fingerboard: Ebony

pickups: AXY4
controls: "DS-I" volume, pickup selector, filter, Q-switch, bass cut/flat/boost, treble cut/flat/boost, mono output

In 2002 it was sent in for the follow repairs:

new truss rod cover
stamp serial number in cavity
replace pickup selector switch

The owner at the time was in Tennessee.

Thanks Mica! I had a sneeking suspicion that the top might be Bocate, as opposed to Cocobolo.
