This bass will be winging its way to me (hopefully) early next week. Would love to know as much about it as possible.

Thanks in advance.

Finally got around to getting some photos taken. There's some really nice, subtle curly figure to the top that just won't photograph well, and some great figure to the back which looks a lot like koa. Almost makes me wish the sides had been reversed!!

Here you go.

This looks very like the 77 series one I used to own. Is it a 34.

I have posted pictures in the pictures playing your alembic thread.

It is a 34". The guy I got it from says he's had it since '97 or so.

Until I get to the lookup, I'm going to guess the top to be Purpleheart and the back to Shedua. But we will see what the record says.
