Hello mighty alembicians! In addition to the build history, I was wondering why my fretless with side LEDs doesn't have the small silver LED surrounds, I was under the impression that was standard?

Hi Robert,

Here's what's in the instrument file:

Highly Custom Essence (though that's just for pricing, there isn't much on here that would be classified as an Essence any more)

top: Quilted Maple (original owner selected the woods)
accent: Purpleheart
core: Mahogany
back: Quilted Maple
neck: Maple and Purpleheart, 34" long scale
fingerboard: Ebony lined fretless with side LEDs in red
body shape: Stinger
peghead shape: Crown
pickups: MXY
electronics: Europa
backplates: Plastic (one of the few features from an Essence!)
hardware: polished brass
originally made for: private individual
birthday: October 25, 1999

Back in 1999, the silver circles were not standard with side LEDs, but now they are.

There are two previous owners recorded for this bass. It's a pretty unusual piece.
