A 1991 left-handed five-string, solid black custom bass I just bought. Any info on this bass is appreciated.

The serial number seems to be incomplete - should be around 6000 or 7000.

Here's what I found in the file:

body: solid Maple
through body neck: 7-piece Maple and Purpleheart, 32" medium scale, lefthanded
fingerboard: Ebony with pearloid ovals
body shape: Standard Point
pickups: 2 Alembic AXY56
controls: Spoiler
finish: Black
hardware: goldplated
originally made for: Bass Central custom order
birthday: September 9, 1991

There is a note about the carving to "make the neck as thin as possible without danger of truss rods breaking through"
