Hi Bear,

Here's what was in the file for the build record:

top: Flamey or Figured Walnut
accent: Maple laminate
body: Mahogany
neck: 7-piece Maple and Purpleheart
scale: 32" medium
fingerboard: Ebony
inlays: Pearloid (plastic) ovals
originally made for: Dan's Music, TX
birthday: sadly, not recorded, but likely the end of November 1989

In 2003 this bass became our bass (I don't remember why). At that time, we repaired the peghead and it got: new tuners, plates, nut, knobs and pickups on April 24, 2003. It was also refinished. Then Danny had it. Now you have it.
