    Up for grabs is my absolutely mint Carvin Vanquish 5. Recently purchased on Reverb. Unfortunately, I'm just not at home with 19mm spacing. comes in OHSC, also in outstanding condition. Price is dropped to $1150 shipped to CONUS ONLY! PayPal accepted. *Note* The photos from Carvin show the bass to have more of a reddish tint than the bass actually is. It is still drop-dead gorgeous and plays like butter.

    The only real trade interest I have would be a Fender American Deluxe Precision (preferably with a maple fretboard). But if you have something interesting, feel free to run it by me.

    Swamp ash body with flame maple top.
    Five Piece tung-oiled maple neck with two high-strength carbon-fiber reinforcing rods and fully adjustable dual action truss rod.
    Heavily-figured Birds eye maple fretboard with Abalone Block Inlays.
    Scale length - 34" . 14" radius.
    Ivory Graph Tech TUSQ Nut
    Head-stock - birds eye maple overlay W/ abalone logo.
    Neck dimensions -1.77" wide @ nut, 3.05" wide @ 24th fret; .79" thick @ 1st fret, .86" thick at 12th fret.
    Hipshot™ A-style bridge with strings-through-body or top loading.
    (19mm) string spacing.
    Carvin premium tuners, 20:1 ratio.
    24 medium-jumbo frets.
    RADHV radius top alnico humbucker pickup in the neck and bridge.
    18V active/passive electronics, master volume/push-pull active passive switch, pickup blend, stacked concentric bass/treble, mid cut/boost.
    Weight - 9.4 pounds

    Beautiful bass ... Yeah carvin uses these dumb filters on all their photos for some reason .. I think they should just use a normal photo with no filters to show the true colors and tints to the finish... Regardless these basses are smokin !

    . Bass was built in 1997. Was played a few times by original owner and son sold it to me. I played it a few times at church but I don't like the string spacing. You can see the specs on the Carvin web site. I'm sorry I am not good a pasting things.

    Me neither. You wouldn't even believe the lowball offers. It's infuriating. But this is a killer bass. Someone will recognize it and will be a very happy person.

    I have the same pre-amp and pickups in one of my basses (although I went with the single coil version in the neck position and the humbucker in the bridge position) and they sound incredible. Mine has a Hipshot piezo bridge, but I never use that or blend it in as it sounds very sterile in my humble opinion. Those Carvin RAD pickups are really awesome!
