I vaguely remember registering my Epic by snail mail when I bought it in 1996.

Any info you have on file would be great. Materials just so I can double check myself, but more curious for whom it was made and was I the first owner other than the store where I bought her?

Many thanks,

Here's what was in the file:

top: Bocate
accent pinstripe: Maple
body: Mahogany
neck: Maple, 34" scale
fingerboard: Ebony
pickups: MXY
control: volume, pan, bass, treble
output: mono
originally sold to: Music Unlimited, CA
birthday: March 28, 1995

Ther is no ownership history for this bass, and I don't have your details on file, so you might want to re-register online. If you puchased it from Music Unlimited, and you received a warranty card, then you are likely the first owner.

Thanks for the response. I'll register online.

What is/was the warranty?

That's where I bought it. That bass must've sat in the shop for just over a year, unless someone bought and returned it. I'm kind've thinking maybe that was the story, as I got a very good price on it and I remember the salesman telling me some story like that.

Do stores order specific models and wood combos too, or do you guys make a few and then sell them to the stores?

Not really my business, just curious.

It is, as you know, a great instrument. It has been my only bass for nine years now. Never let me down.
