    Selling my recently acquired Carvin PB5. This is an amazing bass and I have decided that I want to do a custom order. It is in pretty much perfect shape. No scratches or dents to be found. This bass has a crazy amount of upgrades. To purchase this new from Carvin would cost you $1969.00. This is one of the most beautiful PB5's you will ever see.

    Previous for sale thread is at this link.
    SOLD - Carvin PB5 for sale or trade (Price Drop)

    A full list of up grades is below.

    - 2 piece swamp ash body
    - quilt maple top with trans red finish
    - 5 piece maple neck
    - Birds eye finger board
    - Abalone diamond inlays
    - stainless steel frets
    - Abalone Carvin inlay on head stock
    - matching quilted maple headstock
    - Gold Hardware
    - Gold knobs with Abalone inlays
    - White Pearloid Pickguard
    - Active Electronics
    - J pickup in bridge position
    - Hardshell Case (has broken latch from last shipment)

    Weights in at 10.4 lbs. It balances very well and it is very comfortable on a strap.

    Selling for $1200 shipped in North America. The only trade I would consider is for a black and maple Carvin PB5. That is what I will be ordering from Carvin if I don't find one in trade. I would be looking for a bit of cash on top as well to partially compensate for the cost difference in bass's.

    Gorgeous. Of course you'd list this just two days after I traded for a higher end PJ! GLWTS

    I've got a PB5 and it's awesome. This is a deal folks, and a real work horse of a bass.

    Sorry don't have any. I will see if I can figure something out. There are a few good videos out there though with good examples on YouTube.

    I'm sure - but a sample of THIS bass would be great (offering those has really helped me sell a few pieces - for what that's worth!)
