    Mint cond XB75 in quilt blueburst. The bass was ordered fully equipped with the "pro" upgrades but has since been retrofitted with a full bartolini system, which includes a J single coil and a MM style humbucker. The preamp is now the bart HR-5.4. The bass has been gigged 3 times and has spend most of the time on the stand in my office. The buyer of the bass will receive the original Carvin pre and pickups which I have saved, and the factory hardshell case. I will also seriously consider a trade for a new or well maintained snowboard, including bindings. This is why the bass is for sale. The funds will go straight to Burton.........

    Email for questions. **Pics have just been posted**

    EDIT: Forgot to mention that I'm asking $600. Also, I just noticed that the pic of the back of the neck is distorted. The koa strips are perfectly straight. I guess my camera hiccuped...

    I would buy that bass in a heartbeat if I didn't have one almost exactly like it!!

    Just curious about something: What model is that MM Bart upgrade? I replaced the J with the same J Bart but I haven't touched the MM in mine yet.

    Honestly, I can't remember which model specifically. I'll see if I can dig up some recipts but I do remember that the bart guy told me that he gets orders for carvin retrofits all the time.

    Update: The bass has been posted to an auction site for less than my asking price here but I will not post a link so I stay within the forum rules.

    No problem, just a little curious. Mine has the wide neck option so the MM one mine is might be wider than yours and that Bart might not fit right. I don't have any intentions of doing any more mods right now as I'm happy with mine the way it is. Good luck selling your bass...its a beaut!
