Looks like one too many digits in the serial number posted in the thread title. Viewing the time frame of previous listings in the showcase the 13000 sounds about right - an MK would possibly have an engraved brass plate (if not continuous wood) and inside the main component electronics cavity it will be stamped along the lip. Please check the number and I will gladly correct the title once posted to the thread.

The number stamped inside the electronics cavity is the same as the one on the brass plate, it is: 04MK13270.

It may take a while before the lookup materializes, so why not post a picture? We love to take educated guesses at the build details.

Utterly scrumptious!

Other than that, it must be a 35 or 36" scale Balance K Omega Signature, most probably a Deluxe, dressed up in absolutely fabulous Quilted Maple.

Would love to see some detail shots.

It's a 34' scale, I can email you more pictures if you'd like. What I'm really looking for is a history and description of it because I'm going to sell it.

Hi Mica,
this is the bass that I purchased from Tim Allen. So I am interested in its history etc. Thank you.
