I am the second owner of this Essence and believe the wood to be Coco Bolo with an oil finish. Please provide the build list, since I always like to have as much information about the guitars I own as possible.

Here's a so-so picture for those of you who are interested:

Mike- beautiful Essence. It sure looks like a zebrawood top to me with a Mahogany body. Mica will get around to the build card request eventually for you, but I'm nearly certain that you've got a zebrawood top there.

Enjoy it and welcome to the club-

Hi Mike, welcome to the board! I agree, looks like Zebrawood top, Mahogany body, Maple accent, Maple neck lams with Walnut pinstripes, Ebony fretboard. And it looks like this bass may have side LED's.

Thanks for the comments. Yes, it does have red side LED's. The back does appear to be mahogany with a maple accent. I'll go with Zebrawood until I get the definitive answer.
