    Sold this two weeks ago to a local buyer. He could not adjust to a 5 string. I traded him out of it yesterday,so back on here it goes for another shot. This is a super clean 1990's Carvin LB75. Looks to be virtually unused with just a few minor scratches,and a small chip on the side of the headstock. Has active 9 volt electronics with a push/pull active/passive pot. Hipshot bridge,neck through,and string through body for great sustain,and Sperzel tuners. Very light bass! Just restrung it with new GHS Custom Shop Round wounds. Super straight neck with smooth,low action. Will come with the original Carvin hardshell case. Will also come with a nice black leather strap,and straplocks. Case has a softball size dent on one end. Looks like it got near something hot. This is a great bass for the money. The only trade I may consider is for a MM Stingray 5 with a maple board,and some $ from me. $550.00 shipped CONUS!

    Thanks my friend. If this bass had a bolt on neck,it would be in Argentina now. I have a buyer down there that has purchased several Carvin bass's from me. Because of shipping costs based on size limitations,I have always shipped stuff disassembled to him. This is indeed a steal on this bass. I have not seen one on ebay like it go for $600 shipped!

    Very interested. How's the response on the B string? Any issues with hum or buzz from the pickups? I'll be up in Pennsylvania just northeast of Philly the weekend of the 29th, so maybe we could meet and save you some $$ on shipping?

    - thanks

    This is what you call a DEAL!
     

  13. You'll love the necks on these. I have a '97 LB75, and to be honest, it's r-i-g-h-t up there with my pre-Gibson Tobias 5'er in playability. In fact, with the tung-oiled neck, I like how the Carvin feels, as opposed to the Tobias. Really tight, focused B, too. These have the asymmetrical necks, too. These are such great basses.

    I have a very nice 95 MusicMan Stringray 5 that I might be temped to trade for your Carvin. My other bass is a custom Carvin BB75 and I love their products. Email me and I'll send pics of my MM 5.

    Too bad this isn't a fretless, or I'd be all over it :(
