I would like to buy this bass but I want to make sure that it is an original Alembic Bass Mark king Signature with red Led's.
Can you please confirm and give me more details about the specs. Thank you. Pierre

The serial number seems to be genuine - 95 for the year, MK for a MK Signature Deluxe, and I think they hit 10,000 in about 1997 (just creeping up to 15,000 all of 12 years later).

You might try doing a search on this site - perhaps someone has already asked for the details. Other than that, you'll just have to wait until Mica finds time in her busy schedule to find the buildsheet. Sometimes it takes longer than expected, like last month most people at the factory had a bad flu.

If the seller has kept the buildsheet that came with the bass, that is usually as much as Mica can tell you.

Pierre, please be patient. Mica does check these threads regularly, but it's a low priority in a very busy small-scale operation.

At the top of the Serial Number/History Requests page there's a date printed when the next batch of responses might be posted, but no guarantees.
