Please give me the build details, how many previous owners, etc.

I purchased this one used in 2007 from Bass Northwest (I think)

If you could give me the full completion date (Month, day, year) it would very nice

Hi Roger,

Here's the details from the file:

top: 5A Quilted Maple
accent: Purpleheart laminate and Maple pinstripe
body: Mahogany
through-body neck: 3-piece Maple with 2 Walnut pinstripes, 30.75" short scale
fingerboard: Ebony
body shape: Small Standard
peghead shape: cone
pickups: 2 Alembic MXY4
controls: volume, pan, filter
other: half-moon tailpiece
finish: polyester gloss with satin neck feel
birthday: March 28, 2006
originally sold to: Bass NW

I've got your name noted in the file. Sorry, I don't track historic prices. This seems similar to an Essence in specs, so I'd take an educated guess at around $4900, which was the Essence 4-string base price in 2006.

Thanks, Mica!

This helps a great deal. An interesting note on this bass which is stunning as well as a great player. My sister and brother Desert Lynx cats - Bobbie and Skye - where also born on March 28, 2006! So, this bass is "The Cat's Meow"
