Looks like 24 fret bolt on with a different body design. Enjoy.
I don't like the upper horn.
I kinda dig it.
would like to see a new headstock design too
A new headstock is a big deal for me. If they get an awesome new headstock, I'll be emptying my wallet in their general direction.
It's like a Spector-Warwick NS-Corvette.
I kind of like it.
I'd like to see one in natural.
I'll be interested to hear what, if anything, sets this model apart from their other models tonally. Aesthetically, I'm just not sure yet, but new Carvins always take time to grow on me. The SB series did... the B2 not so much. Anyhow, I'm a devoted Carvinite, but still: no GAS so far.
This is great news. I hope it comes in a 6, and can be purchased fretless or fretted.
Just recently Carvin introduced this bevel top guitar:
They had info on their FB page about it before it was up on the Carvin site. At that time they had also hinted about a new bass model and I had wondered if it would have a beveled top as well. Guess they answered my question! If they can do the natural wood binding on this bass like they show on the guitar that would look great IMO.
They've yet to do a bolt-on sixer, and it would be about time if they did.
I'm pretty sure all of their basses are available in fretless, but I could be wrong.
Dare I hope for dual truss rods this time? Yeah, I know, probably not...
I want the exact bass in that photo! Omg I'm in lust!
I wish it was NT though....I love the top range feel if my bb75 nt
Did you catch the pics of this one? Pointy.
The second new bass reminds me of an LTD/ESP B series bass...meh to em both IMO...
I like it.
very nice indeed.
A fretless one for me please!!!
I like the body, but really need to see the headstock. That's where I dislike so many Carvins. Now, if they had a headless bass all would be solved. ;-)
I like it but I'd like it more if there was better access to the higher frets.
