    Up for sale one Carvin SB5000. Standard specs on this one, alder body, 1 piece maple neck, ebony board, chrome hardware, active electronics (18volt, active/passive push/pull), comes with a white pickguard installed and a tortoise shell pickguard. 19mm spacing for you funk master out there.

    Also included is a hard case from Carvin. The bass is strung with DR Hi Beams strings that are still pretty fresh. Price on this bass is $825.00 plus shipping.

    I'm always amazed at how well this bass plays and sounds. Never really played a carving before, and was very pleasantly surprised. Slappers paradise here!

    Only reason I'm looking to move her is that I grabbed a 6 string recently that I am loving, and that makes bringing a 5'er out a bit redundant.

    As for trades, really only looking to get an EUB (ns, allegra, etc) or a 6 string fretless...I'm also in the market for a nice keyboard. But hit me up with offers cause you never know when GAS will hit.

    Can you post audio or video of different tones of the bass? Thanks

    Not to derail...but how long did your axeport last before it kicked the bucket on you? I was thinking about picking one up b/c my stealthplug just died on me after nearly 5 years of faithful service.

    Great looking Carvin btw!

    Thanks. My axport is tow years old, but I really can't blame the gear on this one. It got wet in a freak coffee accident~ other than that, I've used the hell out of the thing, and plan to get another soon

  11. Every single SB5000 that popped up just narrowly slipped through my fingers. One by just less than 15 minutes!! Now that I finally got the one I wanted (and only because of a selfless TB'er) this one sits seemingly unloved!? :confused: Someone needs this and doesn't even realize it...:help:

    Tempting. I may want to get a 5 again and I want 34" scale. The electronics are interesting...sounds almost like Sadowsky...passive tone, 2 band, etc.
     
  15. very classy looking ! I think I am going to try to sell my Lakland 44-02 to fund this. Hmmmmm....thinking.

    I am debating getting this to add to my 44-02. I love that bass, but there are a couple times/tunes/gigs where a 5 would be nice.
