Hello all, I'm kinda new here. In fact this is my first post. Funkycarnivore, if he is around, will recognise me from tabcrawler. You guys seem to be much more mature... Anyway... to the point: What do you all think of Carvin basses for their price (as compared to MiA Fenders, etc...)? How about their new 35 1/4" scale, especially on a fiver?
