I'm somewhat intrigued with Carvin's catalog (been for years) and the SB4000's looks is scratching me right where I itch. But, never played it, never heard it. Am I crazy to even consider placing an order? With the options that I want, I'm looking at about $1,500 w/o a case. Surely I could do better ANYWHERE else but..... Anyone buy a bass on looks alone? And are happy with the outcome? For $200 or $300 I guess it might be worth the risk but, this is pretty good money here.
