Hi, I just purchased an 1989 Alembic Spoiler from a private collection. Details are a bit worn, so I am not sure I got the whole range right.
Top is definitvely Q-Maple, maybe that helps identifying this 4-string Spoiler.

Welcome aboard!

if the details are slightly worn posting a picture of the bass can help clarify things (and appease the picture loving Alembic owners).

Ahh! removing the backplate reveals the serial number too. 89s5326 it is!
