    Carvin LB70:

    I'm selling this to afford a newly purchased bass.

    I ordered this from the Carvin factory on 5.31.05 and it has only left my house once to get pickups and preamp replaced. I have never gigged with it; it is in fantastic/mint/condition; no scratches, nothing, flawless.

    I (meaning took it to a luthier) replaced the stock pickups w/bartolini 9k1's (top contenders in the bass player shootout and ran me $130 for the pair ) and replaced the preamp with an aguilar obp-3: Bass, mid (push-pull mid freq), treble, pan, volume, and passive/active switch (also about $130 for the pre).

    Features: Mahogany body, flame maple top, greenburst (looks a tad darker in person), rounded body edges, 5 piece maple neck through w/ walnut stripes, neck through not shown on top, no fingerboard inlays, matching headstock, stainless steel frets, rear battery compartment, black hardware, staplocks and orig. hardshell case.

    I figure since I've upgraded the electronics tremendously I'm asking $800/OBO plus shipping, paypal ok, US only; and like I said this bass is in exceptional condition. Before I upgraded the electronics, this cost me around $1200 from the Carvin factory.


    If you want some more pictures just let me know
