    Mint condition 2013 Carvin USA B50 5-string bass with a one piece Swamp Ash body in translucent Emerald Green. Hard Rock Maple neck with satin natural wood finish. Tung-oiled birdseye maple fingerboard. Med-jumbo .048"H .103"W frets. 14" fretboard radius. 34" scale, SB headstock with Carvin sealed tuners. Cream H50-A stacked passive humbucker pickups. Dunlop Straploks. Carvin (G&G) hardshell case. I bought this recently, and had it professionally set up with a new set of GHS Pressurewounds. This bass looks showroom new, not a scratch on it. Light weight at 8.8 lbs.

    FINAL PRICE DROP: $575 shipped CONUS. Not interested in trades. I need to sell this to pay for a four string I bought.

    Great looking Carvin. This one's passive, right?

    Yes sir, all passive. I was thinking about dropping in a Bartolini 3.3 a/p, active / passive three knob preamp if I was going to keep it, but it doesn't really need it. I've had Carvins before with the active / passive option and I usually ran them passive anyway.

    Mike is a super nice/trustworthy TB'er! These B50's are the real deal.
    Great price for an American made 5 er!

    Thanks for all the trade offers. Keep 'em coming, but keep in mind that I need LIGHT! Light as in 9 pounds or under...preferably under.

    Beautiful bass. I have a bright yellow j bass
    Don't discriminate against a sweet bass based on color!
    St Patrick's day is right around the corner. This is a
    Lightweight monster with those sweet as honey H50 a. I have those in my lakland. Wow do they sound awesome!

    I love the color! I'm into trans colors and the green would have fit great with the reggae band I was in...if they were still a band.

    That's a great price for a quality bass with 19mm spacing at the bridge.

    I have my eyes on some "fancier" Jazz style basses, but if that doesn't work out, and yours sticks around, I may be sending you money next week.

    This is pretty much the same bass as the SB 5000 but I like this body shape better.

    Don't suppose you would have any interest in a brand new taylor gs mini mahogany acoustic plus cash?

    Thanks for the offer. I'm more interested in cash, as I need to pay for another purchase I made (or my wife will kill me in my sleep).

    Back to sale only. I just picked up another bass and this one has to go to help pay for it.

    Lots of tire kicking, but I still have it.
     
  18. Any neck dive? How does it balance?

    It balances like a P bass. No neck dive at all that I've noticed. It feels very Fenderish.
