Hi Anthony,

Here's the details from the file:

top: 3A Quilted Maple
accent: Purpleheart pinstripe
body: Mahogany
neck: 4-piece Maple with 4 Walnut pinstripes
scale: 34" long
inlays: Pearloid (plastic) ovals
side markers: Red LEDs
body shape: Essence 5
peghead shape: Cone
finish: polyester gloss
hardware: polished brass
pickups: Alembic MXY56
controls: "Europa" volume, pan, filter, 2-position Q-switch, bass cut/flat/boost switch, treble cut/flat/boost switch, mono side-mounted output
originally made for: McFadyen Music

This was a custom order and the original owner was in North Carolina.

If you find you have any RF interference, you can send the electronics in for a relatively inexpensive upgrade.

Thanks Mica!
Sorry to be so late saying that...I did get the message and I really appreciate your taking the time to do the research. I LOVE this Bass! Plays like butter from day one, and I've never had to reset anything. I did replace the shaky volume pot...but that was more for my own peace of mind rather than any functional concerns...
Alembic has a friend for life in me!
Love you guys!...
