    My Carvin AC40F from the classifieds is in transit. It was too pretty to pass up.

    At first I wasn't sure how I felt about the blue and the binding, but now I'm smitten. She's in transit in Ellenwood, GA right now and I'm getting antsy. Tuesday is a long ways away.

    Holy crud Randy, no wonder it takes a couple of days to update the numbers. Your hard work is definitely appreciated.

    Got it at a discount because it was labeled as "blemished" but I can't find a single scratch on it. Great little bass!

    How do you like the sound/feel of the GWB35? I've been looking into getting a fretless 5 and the GWB looks pretty cool.

    Feel and playability are great. I really wish it had a dedicated mid range adjustment on it though.

    Understandable. Every bass I've had has been bass and treble only, so I don't think that'd be an issue for me. Thanks for your thoughts on it- now to start poking around and see if there isn't one near me I could test drive...

    Nice way to start the thread, all!

    Regarding the GWB - it's pretty trivial to drill another hole and swap the preamp out for a 3 band. It's not like you'll "ruin the collectors' value". And at that price, with those ergonomics (assuming you like narrow string spacing), you've got a major winner.
