Hi TTC,

Here's the details from the instrument file:

MSBI-4 Series bass

top and back: Peruvian Walnut
body: Mahogany
neck: Maple and Purpleheart
scale: 32" medium
fingerboard: Ebony
inlays: Mother of pearl
peghead veneers: Vermilion
originally made for: Rothchild Musical Instruments
birthday: May 8, 1978

It was returned to the factory in August of 1978 to have cracks in the fingerboard repaired. There is no record if this is a Series I or Series II bass, but that usually happens on Series I basses.
