I personally have never heard of cherrywood being used a body wood, so i don't know, but just glancing over the bass, my assumption is:
Rosewood fingerboard. (Mellow tone)
(Because of the Rosewood..) He most likely has it strung with flatwounds. (mellow thumpy tone)
Precision pickup (Not growly like a Jazz)
Tug bar (tells me he was "thumping" with his thumb instead of fingerstyle)
The bass should be really mellow regardless of the body wood.
Was there a specific tonality that your wife was after?
