    Anyone else see the 35 1/4" scale Carvin in Bass Player's Feb. mag.-page 22? Did you notice that the silk winding on the B string is over the nut and the E string is real close. Guess they haven't made strings to properly fit the new beast yet. Just somethin' I noticed and thought I'd share.

    Actually, I've seen the pics in the Carvin catalog. I don't think the fretboard's been extended, they just adjusted the position of the individual frets over a 34 inch scale to conform to a 35 inch scale length. That's why the XB series has 22 frets instead of 24.
