Carvin B50/Blue Mist Metallic/Maple W/Blocks....
This beauty is only a couple months old and is loaded with almost every option you would want or need. I'm hoping to sell my Lakland 5501 with Bart preamp so I don't have to sell this but it's whichever goes first. I'll take whatever funds are left and start the order for another one. That's how much I love these instruments.
If you didn't already know, Carvin will now do a maple board with blocks. I couldn't resist but I didn't stop there. Here's the other specs.
Swamp Ash lightweight body(9 lbs 1 ounce) upgrade
5 piece Maple neck for more stability(upgrade)
Sekou Bunch headstock(upgrade)
Birdseye Maple Fretboard with Mother of Pearl Blocks(upgrade)
Stainless Steel Frets(upgrade)
Active SB5000 electronics with Vol, Blend(upgrade), Tone(active/passive) and Bass/Treble stack
Creme H50A pickups for silent operation(upgrade)
Mother of Pearl chrome knobs(upgrade)
G&G Carvin Hardshell
This is virtually brand new and totally spanks.
$1050 shipped conus
This bass if you order it from Carvin will be between $1250-$1300 if you go with the same specs and include shipping.
This has to be the best looking Carvin I've ever seen.
Pics added although they don't do justice. Here's the headstock and another full body too.
Hey I would love to trade you a couple of MTD 5'ers:
One has Nordies and Bart Pre: A Korean Heir red ash withe Jazz/stingray config; 9 1/2 lbs Pretty much mint.
MTD 2: Czech made Cherry red with 2 single coil Am. Barts and Bart Pre. installed by Mike Lull. Some wear but in excellent condition. Wenge neck. 9 3/4 lbs.
Thanks for the offer but I guess my goal is to find someone about ready to place an order for a loaded up B50 and save them a few hundred bucks by selling them mine. Even better, sell my Lakland 5501 with the Bartolini preamp so I don't have to sell this baby.
Very nice!! Best looking Carvin? Hmm, I vote for mine:Attachment 311990
Nice! bridge spacing and scale length?
19mm spacing with an incredible 34" scale B string.
OK, by best looking..........I'm talking about the B series and particularly the painted bodies......kinda excluding the translucent/transparent...........I too love the look of stained wood and exotic figuring. Halegroove has carefully chosen a blue/pearl look that is quite stunning. I realize Carvin has a trillion options and that there are many beautiful basses out there. I just wish I could afford this bass!!!
If you're looking for a stripped down version that will get the job done, this is NOT the one. If you're looking for a Lifetime bass with a lot of thought put into it, this IS the one.
Huge B string, Neck stability with 5 piece maple, Stainless Steel frets so you'll probably never refret.
Not to mention the Timeless look.
Several Carvin's for sale..........however this one seems to "have it all". It's the most expensive and for trading it might not work out.........for playing/gigging those sweet Marcus Miller/Lydia Kobesj licks...........it's "Perfect". Why buy a Sadowsky when this one will sound 95% as good and have the same or better playability?
Taking it off the market for now.
