    Is the neck glossy or tung oil?

    The neck has Carvin's clear, satin finish. Very smoooooth!

    Here is a 25 minute video by Brian Bromberg giving an incredibly detailed overview of this bass, all its features, tones, playing samples, etc.:

    It weighs a little over 9 pounds. Carvin lists the average weight as 9.2 lbs and I think this is right about there. If you have any other questions just let me know!

    Yup - I've owned one, they are superb.

    And to the seller - your flash pictures are not doing this bass any favors.

    Now asking just $1200 shipped to your door (in the continental US)
    Here's a quick cell phone shot of the back:

    and another of the front using room lighting and a little flash from a distance:

    The photos don't do the quilted maple justice. It is really 3 dimensional and looks spectacular under lights. To me it looks more amber than "orange".
    If you have any specific questions, don't hesitate to ask.
