Hi Wu,

I'm sorry, but I couldn't locate this file today. We do check every few months the list of files that were not located, to see if they were refiled in the meantime.

If you post a picture of this instrument, I can tell you some details about it.

These are the pictures...however, its not in the best quality... hope you could still tell some details from it.
The top and back seems to have the same type of wood ( I am guessing cocobolo)

Thanks so much for checking

thanks for all the compliments, I surely enjoys it alot, really nothing sounds like an Alembic :-) However, since I got it from twin town guitar...I am trying to firgure out the wood by myself, failing to do that, I am now turning to experts such as you guys to give me a hand...

Sorry for my poor English...

Wu,

I'm certainly not an expert, but I'd say your guess of cocobolo is spot on. Looks like mahogany for the body wood w/ a maple pinstripe. Purpleheart laminates in the neck.

Beautiful bass and I'm sure Mica will let you know once she's seen the pictures.

Looks like a typical yummie 7-piece Series II wood recipe: coco bolo > maple > mahogany > maple > mahogany > maple > coco bolo. If it has LEDs I guess they're activated by plugging in, as there's no switch. Great bass Wu, must sound amazing!
