    I took this as half of a 2 for 1 trade deal. The other is a functional twin of this one, and I'm keeping that one. It's just more my conservative aesthetic. If my full time gig was an oldies, punk, surf, or reggae band, the green one would rule. The abalone is beautiful, and the flame on the maple fingerboard is insane, like 3-D. The frets are in perfect condition.

    It's in mint condition. Plays awesome. I have heard Carvin electronics have a rep for being sterile or weak. Not so here. These recent beasts nail the vintage tone and output and sound like they should. The preamp reminds me of an Aguilar OBP-2 in function and tone. I halfway expected to flip one of these and gut the other. I'm keeping the blue one as I said, and I'm leaving it as-is. The pickups and electronics are excellent.

    Here is the last sale thread.
    SOLD - Carvin PB5
    He got the asking price, and I'm going to keep it right there, since it is a bargain. Shipping is included in North America. Comes with the like-new condition Carvin heavy padded gig bag. That is also excellent.

    As far as trades, I'm pretty set in the bass department. I'd consider greenboy cabs, +/- cash to make it even. Worst I can say is no. Lowball trades will be ignored. Thanks for looking!
    Obviously, the green one...

    Any interest in a Orange Terror Bass 500 Combo 2-12?
