    Up for sale is my Carvin SB5000 5-string bass. I am the original owner and ordered this bass from Carvin in 2011. Though this bass has been gigged, it's still in excellent condition, with the exception of a few small dings on the body, and some typical finger scratches on the pickguard. Last year, I replaced the stock Carvin preamp with an Audere Pro JZ3 preamp (2-band with a passive tone control) running on 18V (the preamp is wired directly to the existing battery boxes), which sounds awesome.

    It features a swamp ash body, maple neck, and birdseye maple fingerboard/headstock. The neck has Carvin's satin/oil finish, instead of a gloss finish - it's super comfortable and fast! It has 19mm string spacing at the bridge, and a 1.75" nut width. These weren't the lightest basses in the world, but this one isn't too bad, with a cheap-Amazon-scale weight of 9lbs, 13oz.

    The bass also includes the original Carvin hardshell case, original invoice and paperwork, and the original Carvin preamp. I've loved this bass for a while now, but it's time to make room for some new additions to the herd... :D

    $900 shipped to the lower 48 CONUS. $850 for a local Denver deal. I'm not terribly interested in trades, as I'm looking specifically at buying a new G&L JB-5, but I'm always open to ideas. :D PayPal only for payment, and I will only ship/sell to buyers in the lower 48 CONUS. Feel free to hit me up with questions. Thanks for looking!

    Of the bass alone, no, unfortunately. However, I do have a track I recorded using the bass (with the Audere preamp, not the Carvin pre):

    I love my SB5000! The necks on these are to die for, thin front to back, not chunky.
    Mine has the stock preamp & sounds great IMO, I bet yours rocks.
