    if you look up 'neck dive' in the bass dictionary, there's a picture of it. ;)

    to me, it looks like a case where you can't play it sitting down or on a strap.

    How can they possibly attribute this atrocity to a builder? If I were Carvin I'd sue for libel.
  15. Customized right out of usefulness I'd say. And it's local. I'd love to see it in person and get the whole story behind it. Should be quite interesting.

    Id of never geaussed it was a carvin in my woldest dreams.

    On a side note. If fixed up, including wood finishing. Maybe could advertize it as some form of bass sitar. Thats first thing that came to my mind. Then realized was paper decal fretbaord covering. Low price bass sitar then. Lol.
