I will paraphrase deichman from when he was selling this a while back. All of you should be familiar with this bass, it is a monster. This is the one Carey built for Adrian Garcia and this past NAMM show. . . It has the most insane amboyna burl top with matching pickup covers over an ash body, maple 34.5 in scale (a la F Bass) neck with a crazy birdseye maple board. I had it sent back to Carey to swap the F Bass pre out for an Aguilar OBP-3 and he also added series/parallel push/pull knobs. It has Carey's dual coils (fabulous pickups), amber LED side dots and chrome hardware. I'm going to ask $3600 shipped to the lower 48; for Paypal the fees are buyer's responsibility. NO TRADES. . . Given the options on this bass, Carey's wait time, and the superb level of his work I think it's a fair price. Cliche as it may sound, I have never owned a bass that was so easy to play, has such a great variety of tones available, and has literally PERFECTattention to detail and craftsmanship. The first time I played this bass at church a bassist/friend of mine came up afterwards and kept commenting about how huge and deep it sounded. He plays a Sadowsky which I've used at church as well, so I asked him, "more huge and deep than the Sadowsky?" Without a second thought he said, "Yep... what kind of bass is that?" I simply can't afford to keep this bass, but I wanted to try out one of Carey's basses for myself to see if I want to have him build me one someday, funds allowing. . . it did not disappoint!
