Thanks, Dave! I simply cannot wait! I've been lusting after an Alembic for 22 years, and finally found the right fit at the right time.

Hi Michael,

Here's the details from the instrument file:

top: Flame Maple
accent: Maple and Purpleheart double pinstripe
body: Mahogany
set neck: 3-piece Maple with 2 Walnut pinstripes, 34" long scale
fingerboard: Ebony with pearloid ovals
birthday: not recorded, but likely late July 1998

Confirming that the #32/60 is correct. This was a special edition bass that was made for Guitar Center as an anniversary model exclusively for them. The double pinstripe, brass plates, premium Flame Maple top, and pearloid oval inlays distinguish these special edition basses from standard Epics.

In 2004 the bass was registered as a used instrument by a person in MN.
