    Awesome bass. You may want to change your title because it says 4 string. If people does a search it might not show up.

    If this were fretless I'd be all over it.

    Up for offers!
  7. How much does this weigh if you don't mind me asking?
  8. BigRedBassPlayer

    I can get a more accurate weight, but I believe it's about 9.2. Since it's a chambered body, that helps a ton. I had a SB5000 right before this, and you can defiantly tell the difference. And those weren't too heavy.

    I have an offer on the table. I lowered the price and have a obo on it. Don't be afraid of Carvins. These basses are absolutely killer!

    I have this bass. Same build (but I went with Abalone). It is amazing. Buttery feel, fast neck, killer vintage tone with those JJ's. Growl to spare. Very versatile, too with those electronics.

    I have alot of basses and have owned many many more over the years. Carvins are the most underrated and best value basses in the market IMO. As I collect more incredible axes (Roscoe, Pedulla, Smith, Tobias, Benavente, Pavel, Fender, Warwick, Dingwall etc) I keep going back to the well and buying more Carvins (now have 4). And, my main battle axe for gigs is a . . . Carvin.


    Cool demo video - shows some of the key tones you can get:

    My old bass. Best fiver I've owned. Only sold it to BigRedBassPlayer because I need money after my recent divorce.
  13. Van you list a price for us mobile users?

    This bass has been sold.

    And sorry for not listing the price in the thread. It skipped my mind. A trick I was taught for mobile users is if you hit the ... In the top right corner, then click web view you will see it as it's on the computer.
