Looks like a Koa top, do you have any better pics?
Sweet couple, congrats!

Here's a close up. It's interesting that the pickups don't say "Alembic" on them, though they are marked "5xy" underneath. Is this a standard Alembic pickup for this model?

Looks more like figured Maple with some burl in the second picture, the pickups are MXY 5's (MXY is standard for the Essence, same pickups as AXY only in smaller housing)

Btw: This bass was born in May-June of '91
