I have 2674, a Spoiler from '83
I think you've misread the second number...

Looks like a Distillate ("D" in the serial, plus the electronics) with the Scorpion body style. Another special one!

Hi Chris,

Here's the details from the file:

Distillate DMB4 83D2727

top and back: Zebrawood
body: Mahogany
neck: Maple and Purpleheart, 32" medium scale
fingerboard: Ebony with pearloid oval inalys
peghead veneers: Zebrawood
originally made for: not recorded
birthday: June 15, 1893

That's it.

Besides the Scorpion body shape (of which there are several variations), this Distillate also has a back laminate, which is not typical for the model.

Hey Mica; 1893? That's some vintage piece! (Only joking):-)
