    Hey all,

    It's been super long since I've been on TB but need to unload my 5er.
    Up for sale is my Carvin SB5000 5 string bass. Great playing and sounding jazz style bass in antique white finish. Bass is currently discontinued by Carvin/Keisel, but if you don't know what this is, you will find plenty of raves here on TB.

    Bass is in mint condition (not even belt buckle scratches!). Never gigged, smoke/pet-free home!
    - Ash body
    - Maple neck
    - Rosewood fingerboard
    - Abalone fret markers
    - J99 pickups

    - Dual 9V preamp
    - VVT w/ stacked bass/treble active EQ (Can also be switched to passive with push/pull tone knob)
    - Made in USA
    - 9 lb 14 oz

    Comes in a brand new Gator 4G gig bag

    NO TRADES!!!

    SB5000s have 19mm string spacing at the bridge.

    The nut is 45mm wide.

    I bought an SB5000 from a TBer earlier this year. Fantastic bass.

    Good luck with the sale, this will not last long.
