I picked up this sweet bass last year and was wondering if there is any history on it? Thanks for the support. :-)

Yes, it's like looking a picture of my girlfriend kissing some other guy. Anyone have any idea what wood these black spoilers are made from? SOB is heavy!

A wide strap, possibly padded, can help relieve the pressure on your shoulder. IIRC, the solid finish basses are usually solid mahogany.

Painted Spoilers were made of Maple, not Mahogany.
There are a few threads here were you can see one stripped of it's finish.

All maple? I'd love to know 100% if this was true.

Hi Bobby, welcome to the board! When Mica has a chance to pull your build card, that should tell us the makeup of your bass.

Most solid black Spoilers and Distillate basses were made for solid Maple body wings. But I will confirm when I get to this record.
