    SOLD!

    This is a Carvin LB76 lined fretless 6. In rough cosmetic condition, but plays like butter; some of the lowest action I've encountered. As you can see, the body was routed to lower the bridge down (to get the action even lower). I was going to use some black pickguard material to fill the route/gap, but never got around to it. I will also be heading down to Carvin and getting a new truss rod cover. Other than the route, just some scratches/scuffs in the finish and the one finish chip on the back/lower horn (visible in the pic of the back). The action is REALLY super low and the neck is very comfortable. Specs:

    Body: Alder
    Neck: Maple Neck-Thru
    Pickups: Carvin H50 Jazz
    Preamp/EQ: Carvin 9V Bass/Treble
    Tuners: Black Sperzel Locking Tuners
    Bridge: Black Hipshot A-Style (adjustable spacing, 16.25mm standard)
    Scale: 34"

    Because of the cosmetic condition, asking only $375 shipped in the continental US w/gig bag ($25 more for a hardshell case). International shipping is fine, just PM me for a ship quote. PayPal is preferred. No trades right now (unless it's REALLY good!). :)

    Ordering this exact bass would cost over $1K from Carvin direct. This is a great price for a USA neck-thru.

    In addition to having the body below it routed, was the bridge moved from its original position vertically, or was it kept in the exact same position?

    Wow... That's a killer deal! What's the knob configuration? Vol/blend/bass/treb?

    That bass is practically begging for some black coated/tape strings...

    I didn't do the mods; the previous owner did, but I'm assuming it's in the same place as I haven't had any intonation issues. There don't seem to be any additonal bridge holes, but I've never taken off the bridge to find out. On closer inspection, looks like one of the bridge screws in cracked off (doesn't really matter since the other 3 are sufficient to keep the bridge on).

    Exactly - V/B/B/T.
