    Up for sale is my Carvin SB5000.

    Beautiful flame maple. Not sure on the body wood type, but from the pic of the back it looks like swamp ash.

    Beautiful birds eye maple fret board, thin front to back.
    With “very low playable action”. The markers are decals.

    Got it here on TB from a great guy about three years ago. Just not playing 5 stings must any more, and could use some money for other things.

    1.75” nut, 14” radius, 22 med. jumbo frets.
    The setup is 18 volt, V/V/push pull tone/ B/T stack.
    Weight is 9.6 lbs.

    I believe I accidentally fried the preamp, so I called Carvin and I bought a new/old stock preamp
    Had it professionally installed.

    The bass orig. came with black hardware, which looked great.
    I personally prefer black, but the more I looked at it I thought it would look sexy with gold, and it does.

    I bought the gold hardware other than the tuners used here on T/bass. The tuners are new Gotoh’s.
    I can throw it the black hardware too.

    It is a player’s bass, but nothing major. I would give it a 8 to 8.5.The pickguard has a bit of players wear. Comes with the Orig. G&G HSC.


    No trades at this time.
    Any question, please PM me!

    $895.00 shipped UPS, conus only. PayPal ok.
    Thanks for looking!

    These are great basses with comfortable, asymmetric necks.

    Yes, the Carvin necks are very comfortable to play.
    Great B string too, for a 34" scale.

    What are the fret markers under the decals, or is it a blank fretboard?

    "trey-bass" was asking about the Carvin SB5000, not your Fender.
