I'm from Germany and I play this wonderfull Bass now about a cuple of years and almost ca 450 gigs. I think its time to know more about it.
Can you tell me how old this Bass is, and some more Informations you have about it.
Thank you very much, best whishes from Bavaria

Hi Peter, welcome to the forum!

The 98 at the start of the number tells us that your Excel was finished in 1998, and it was roughly the 11,862nd instrument that Alembic built.
