Hi,
Many years ago I purchased a new Alembic Epic Special Edition #10: SN 98W11809 from a guitar center in NJ. Back then, I was notoriously bad about registering equipment, and was wondering if it would be possible to register it now!
Regards!
Marc

PS - I also was wondering if you still "alembicize" basses, I also have a Starfire I.

Hi Marc,

Here's the details from the instrument file:

top: Flame Maple
accent: Purpleheart and Maple veneers
body: Mahogany
neck: 3-piece Maple with 2 Walnut pinstripes
fingerboard: Ebony with pearloid (plastic) inlays
plates: brass
birthday: July 17, 1998
originally made for: Guitar Center

This was part of a 60 piece order for Guitar Center's anniversary model. This one is number 10 of the edition and it should bear an engraved truss rod plate.

One other note: apparently, there is an Essence bass out there with the same serial number, only with a "K" for the alpha character.
