I've had my Epic for maybe 8 years now but I've never looked up its histroy/info - too busy playing it!lol
Id like to find out now though because having looked at many Epics all over this club and the net - mine looks a bit diff. - it has a quilted maple top of such high quality that one would expect on a signature mod - beautiful maple...
Thnx

Robbie, check the note at the top of the main page for the serial# requests: next batch of lookups will hopefully be posted on the 29th.

Mica & Co. are busy building Alembics, as a family business really, and they are crazy enough to spend some spare time looking up these requests. So be patient.

Robbie. It's a close relative of mine - 96w9576. At a guess I'd say it has a AAA quilt maple top, purpleheart pinstripe and mahogany body. 5 piece maple neck with a walnut veneer between the neck and ebony fingerboard. finally, a maple veneer on the headstock.

This file is in a place that is very hard to get to right now. I need some help to move a large box that is blocking the drawer from opening all the way. I will let you know what I find out as soon as I can get to the file.
