    This one's hard, but after much internal deliberation I have decided to let go of this beautiful Carvin Icon 5. It almost stealthed out but in a very natural way. The intense quilted maple top and matching head stock veneer gives this bass all the character you could ask for. It has a three band pre with sweepable mids and active/passive push pull on the volume knob, carvin brand single coil pickups. Woods to my knowledge are maple through neck, ash body wings, ebony fingerboard.

    It has an incredibly huge sound and immense flexibility from the sweepable mids.

    I'm really needing to downsize my collection so trades are not in the cards for this one.

    There are a couple of small blemishes. One finish chip on the treble side of the bridge pickup and a small blemish on the back near input jack. Both are photographed.

    Weight is 9.4lbs on the bathroom scale, seeking 900 OBO shipped with non original case.

    This is my before selling to a store price. Come on all, great bass here. Bad market is my loss your gain

    Okay new price 775 shipped!

    I think this is my old bass. 19mm bridge, single coil pickups? I was so sorry to let it go.
