    i have one month old Carvin SB5000 that i like to sell or trade.

    It's in great condition. I love it, but i am just Fender guy.

    This is an amazing bass. I've owned really nice boutiques, and I really mean no exaggeration that this is right up there. Fender has a vibe, but in terms of pound for pound performance, the Carvin really wins. I used to be a Carvin hater, too!

    This is Sooooooo true. These basses kill. Period. I was a Carvin hater to the Extreme. Everything had to be Sadowskys, and Fbasses. But these 5000's just smash! I love mine. I'm about to go up for praise and worship in 20 minutes and I can't wait ;)

    This might be a long shot, but any interest in a Squier Pro Tone V Precision bass + cash? If you are not familiar with them, search on this forum and you'll find that they are very highly rated Fender fivers with 2 humbuckers. Wide string spacing like a P-bass.
