    Hey, TB! New band, new tour... necessitates a new bass. Same old, same old, right? I bought this to noodle and build up my fretless chops, and it is a beauty! The pics don't do it justice, and it's just one of the most comfortable basses I've ever strapped on. It is a Carvin B50 custom build lined fretless, Alder body, ebony fretboard, custom smaller body shape, super balance. I am only asking what I have in it, after a couple of upgrades by Brian Barrett. 18v active circuit. Has a new set of Barts, new straplocks, new wiring and new strings. Set up and adjusted at Low End Bass Shop in Murfreesboro. Neck is pretty thin, 17.5 I believe, and super fast. It is wearing a set of flats now and it just purrs.

    600+ split shipping

    Who did the mods to the body? And are the electronics the stock Carvin electronics? I know the pickups aren't stock.

    Mods were done by Halegroove. Stock Carvin pre, completely rewired and checked by Brian Barrett at Low End. Barts are from Low End as well.

    Thanks! I like the mods to the body. It looks much nicer than the stock body.

    Yeah, she's pretty, and the mods make her light... feels nice on the shoulder/ lap.
