    525

    *** Sold on Reverb. For future searchers' reference. Sold for $525.00 + $45 shipping to California. ***

    1995 Carvin LB75. I am the original owner. It's in very nice shape but does have some minor play wear which I tried to depict in the photos. The case is in decent condition. All the latches work although it does some have some wear and discoloration on the tweed and one of the metal feet is gone.

    The upgrades were performed in 2003 and were:
    1. Replace original Wilkinson bridge with Carvin/Hipshot bridge.
    2. Convert to string through with Carvin ferrules.
    3. Replace original Carvin 2 band preamp with new Carvin 3 band preamp module adding mid control and active/passive option.

    Specs:
    • Neck & Body: Tung Oiled Mahogany
    • Fretboard: Ebony
    • Construction: Neck Through
    • Pickups: Carvin H50N Stacked Humbuckers
    • Tuners: Sperzel Locking
    • Scale: 34"
    • String Spacing at bridge: 19mm
    • Wide Neck Option (1.75" at nut, 3" at 24th fret)
    • Asymmetrical Neck Profile (thinner on treble side)
    • Offset Position Dots
    • Weight: 9.0 lbs.

    Strung with flats most of its life. Frets are in excellent condition. Currently has a fresh set of EB round-wounds. I may still have the old set of Chromes that were on it. If I do I'll included them also. Neck is straight and stable and the truss rod works as it should. Pictured with Dunlop strap buttons but the original Carvin strap buttons will be reinstalled before shipping.

    $525 +shipping, Con-US. Paypal OK (to confirmed addresses only).

    Don't have any trades in mind but you never know. Please PM any purchase or trade offers.

    Is the thru neck ALSO mahogany?
    That looks beautiful in its simplicity
     
  5. Does this Carvin preamp have the active/passive option?
