    I'm asking $800 shipped in the lower 48 USA, or make me an offer.
  2. Great bass!

    Are you interested in trades at the moment, or just cash?
  3. Prefer cash.

    The only trades I would consider would be a 5 string Bongo, or a Mesa Powerhouse 1x12 cabinet (8 ohm, black grill) plus cash.

    These SBs are intriguing me more and more. How does the next feel? What would you compare it to? 17.5mm string spacing,right?

    Please correct me if I'm wrong, but these have standard 19mm spacing. I think the SB5000 and the Bunny Brunel are the only Carvin 5er's with wide spacing, which is why I'm torn between those two!
  6. I've already got this packed in a mountain of packing peanuts, but according to the Carvin website:

    string spacing .750" (19mm) on center

    It's very easy to add a coil tap switch. That way you get your J/J, plus all the stuff you can't get with a J/J.
  10. Yeah, I prefer the humbucker in the bridge. Different strokes I guess.

    Definitely man. And I don't want you to think I was being negative towards your bass. It's a looker. I'm just a J/J guy and I never see any J/J ones for sale used. Maybe everyone else prefers the J/MM? :)

    I know I could coil tap it but I prefer the Jazz sound and look.

    Again, best of luck on a very nice USA jazz.
