This is the most beautiful bass guitar I have ever seen. Everytime I open the case and take it out, I have to smile! Now I'd like to know more about my baby...

Hi Donovan, welcome to the board, and congrats on the Epic!

While you're waiting on a build card search, it looks like a Birds Eye Maple top on a Mahogany body, and a three piece Maple neck with Ebony fingerboard. The controls are volume, pan, bass and treble. The bass and treble controls are asymmetrical, +6dB and -15dB, centered around 100Hz and 5KHz. The logo appears to be bronze on a Maple veneer. Bridge and tailpiece are brass.

Donovan,
Below are two previous lookups on the bass in archive from 2007.

Looks like I missed on the top; Flame Maple instead of Birds Eye.

Donovan:

Welcome to the club and congrats on your bass. Alembics do tend to have the reaction you describe on their owners. May you make beautiful music together for many years to come.

Bill, the guitar one

Donovan - don't you remember posting those two requests in June and July of 2007? Different user name, but the same full name on the profile.
