I'm now the proud owner of this blonde bombshell. All maple, nothing custom, although was a sustain block stock in '94? Any details would be nice, just for the fun of it. Pics over in the showcase.

Hi Jack,

Here's what I found in the instrument file:

KLB5 Essence 5-string bass
top: Quilted Maple
accent: Walnut pinstripe
body: Rock Maple
neck: 5-piece Maple with 4 Walnut pinstripes
scale: 34" long
fingerboard: Ebony
inlays: none
pickups: Alembic MXY56
controls: "Essence" volume, pan, filter, mono output
birthday: December 28, 1994
originally made for: 1995 NAMM show display

The sustain block was standard for the 5- and 6-string Essence basses, but not the 4-string version.
