    Up for sale is in my opinion the nicest SB5000 I have seen or owned. Unfortunately Fender Blood runs deep in my veins! Bass is like new in every way,and just had new Ernie Ball Slinky's installed. Swamp ash body is finished off in a gorgeous cherry burst. Neck is tung oiled maple,with a tung oiled Birdseye maple board,and pearloid dots. 18 volt active/passive electronics,and J99A Alnico single coil pickups make this baby sing. All hardware is chrome,and a white pearloid guard compliments the body. Looks,plays,and sounds fantastic. Will also come with the factory Carvin hardshell case that is super clean. Priced to go at $850 firm,plus shipping,Conus Only. No trades needed. Cash,money order,certified check or Pay Pal accepted.


    SOLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks! This has got to be one of the best looking,and playing SB5000's I have owned. Who ever buys this one will be thrilled with it. I gigged with it last Saturday night,and it killed. The active electronics are awesome! May use it again for the "Black Friday Party" we are playing tomorrow night,if it does not sell by then.

    I have emailed Carvin and gave them the serial # that is 110525. I should get a response in 24 hrs. Don't think the bass is too old,based on the superb condition.
