    I have a beautiful SB5000 for sale. I just received this bass in a trade. The bass is absolutely beautiful. It's black which you can see the grain. 18v active/passive. Comes with original Carvin case. Weighs about 10lbs. It has an ebony fingerboard in amazing condition.

    I'm only selling cause I bought the SB5000 of my dreams from my buddy here on TB. So, I'm using this to fund it.

    It also comes with 2 other pick guards and a pup cover.

    Selling for $800 shipped obo. It's worth more than what they go for.

    Sweet Carvin Bump. I love the headstock shape on these. It's much nicer than many other basses at twice the price.

    I played one of these at Carvin World Domination Headquarters this afternoon.
    It's a great bass! Carvin scored with this model.

    It's absolutely gorgeous and so much fun to play. These basses sound great too! Search TB and read what people say about them.

    As the previous owner I can honestly say these are 1 of the bass worlds best kept secrets. Tone for days.
    Great TBer to deal with to boot!

    Looks like ash. You can order either (alder is standard, ash is optional) from Carvin.

    I was wondering cause of the grain. But, I'm not good with telling the difference between woods. Thanks for the help!
