FS only: Carvin LB-75 5-string - walnut, J/MM, great player!
Well, the time has finally come. My GAS has abated (slightly ;)) with a couple recent acquisitions, so I need to keep my promise to my wife and let this one go. I'm the only owner - purchased it custom-made new from Carvin in summer of '00, so it's just north of 10 years old, though aside from some pretty standard player's wear (see pics below), you might not know it. This has been my only bass that whole time, until just recently. It plays great, sounds great, wears well on a strap, and is just an all-around really solid player's bass.
It's been setup recently with EADGC; I didn't change the nut, though, so you can string it up how you see fit.
Here are the details:
Thanks for looking! Please give this baby a good home - she's been real good to me for the last decade. :crying:
Shots of wear:
Awwww MAN! :bawl:
I wanted a walnut Carvin 4ever!
Sorry you arent looking for trades and good luck with the sale.
Bump for that being a super-sexy instrument. I'd jump on that if I could. Hope it finds a loving owner!
Thanks cdawzrd! Morning bump.
Nice bass! I have a koa LB75F and would love to have a fretted partner for it. How's the neck action/relief & truss rod? Can you post a photo of the truss rod nut? Lot's of horror stories of carvin truss rod nuts breaking free - in a neck-thru, that's terminal.
If that was a fretless I'd just buy it and claim ignorance of the whole transaction to the Mrs. when it arrived - like a temporary insanity/amnesia thing :lol:
But a gorgeous bass at a fantastic price!
The action is quite nice - neck is straight and the fretwork is quite good. It's no hand-made boutique bass, but I've never had any issues with my medium-low preferred action.
As for the truss rod, it's perfect. I just had it set up recently when I went back to EADGC and the tech didn't have anything to say, which I took as "no news is good news." :)
Here are a couple quick pics:
Bump - I'm open to offers, though please no low-balls. This is a great bass at (IMO) an already nice price, but I do need to move it, so let me know if you're interested and we'll see what we can work out. Thanks!
*sniff* My baby is sold! Thanks all!
