    Picked up a Bromberg 5'er and SB5000, so I'm looking to thin the herd and clean out the basement a bit. Love this bass but with the other two that I have I can't see it getting a lot of playing time in the near future...Tons of tonal options, great feel, fast neck, and I love the looks!

    Here's the original sale thread from when I purchased it a few months back...

    http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f126/fs-carvin-bb75-975060/

    I'm simply looking to get back out of it what I put into it. $425 shipped to the CONUS...

    Not interested in trades at this time and the price is pretty firm.

    Thanks for looking!

    Yes, in parts. If you read the original post, the owner before removed it. It looks pretty neat actually. If you like the roadworn kind of look.

    Note - there is tung oil on the back of the neck and all of the exposed wood. If I wouldn't have purchased a different used BB75 a few weeks ago, I would be buying this one back. Duh!! The stupid things we do.

    This is a great bass. And a great guy to deal with. :)

    Hmm... interesting. Can I assume that the fretboard was cleaned off and it still includes the HSC?

    I've cleaned the fretboard but just wiped it down, etc.

    Great price on an awesome, versatile bass that looks unbelievably cool...As they say in the used car sales world, "You think long, you think wrong..." Don't think, just buy it! :)

    Thanks! Not sure on the exact string spacing...It's closer than most of my other basses...Closer than my SB5000 for sure. Not sure I'll be able to find the measurements online but I'll try to accurately measure it tonight when I get home.

    About 9 pounds on the weight.
