Just bought a Distillate on consignment. I'm really psyched, it looks like it hasn't been played, it plays and sounds like a dream. I'd like to know more about it and the controls, if possible.

Thanks,

Peter

You may be more psyched than you know; if it's 81 1886 and not 81D1886, you just bought a Series I or II, not a Distillate! (or there was a serial-number-stamping error) And, of course, give us pictures. We like pictures.

Here's the link to standard Distallate controls. Good point on the serial number supplied (no previous look-up found). Play it Healthy!

Distillate

Here's a pic. No such luck of it being a Series I/II. :-) A quick Google image search indicates to me that it may be a custom order though.

You are going to love it! Distillates are fine basses and this one looks to be a beauty.
