Patience, Sergio. It's a small shop with a large business, and the webmistress (who looks these up)has about 5,000 other things to do as well. They'll get to it. And welcome to the board.

Hi Bartolo,

Here's the information from the build record:

83S2973 SMB4 Spoiler Exploiter

top: Bird's-eye Maple
body: Mahogany
neck: 3-piece Maple, 32" medium scale
fingerboard: Ebony, pearloid inlays
pickups: 2 Alembic AXY
controls: "Spoiler" volume, 4-position rotary pickup selector switch, filter, 2-position Q switch, mono output
birthday: November 18, 1983
originally made for: Zapf's Music

This bass was repaired in September of 1984 before it was sold to the original owner. The truss rods has a failure and could not be loosened. The fingerboard was replaced, new rods installed, and of course if was levelled and fretted.

It was sold to the original owner a couple of months later in December 1984 to a person in Pennsylvania.
