    Beautiful translucent green finish on this mid-nineties carvin fretless. Ebony fretboard is an excellent condition. Bass has very few hours on it. Neck- thru design as you can see in the pictures. Neck has a very smooth satin type finish on the back.
    I am the original owner and bought it new in 1996.
    One small paint chip, see pic.
    $550 shipped to Conus.

    Woah I didn’t know these came with Sperzels. Maybe I did and just forgot. Either way, cool bass and GLWTS.

    I think maybe it was an upgrade at the time that I ordered the bass. I don't remember for sure, but that is how it came from Carvin, I do know that.

    I believe the strings are elixirs if I remember correctly. It does not have a case I always use a gig bag.

    My '96 Koa 4-string Carvin came with Sperzels.
