I purchased this bass in 1983 or 1984. Pretty sure I am the 2nd owner. Looking for the build sheet, history & any other information including wood type.
This bass has not been modified or required any repairs since I have owned it. It has seen hardly any playing time and is in really great condition.
Thanks for looking, geo.

Nice Distillate! I have a fondness for these, as my first Alembic was a Distillate (which I still have and enjoy very much!).
That top looks like Macassar ebony to me; I'm sure others will chime in on this one.
Enjoy your bass, and Happy Holidays to you!
