    FS: Carvin SB5001 5 String Bass - Marcus Miller on Steroids SB 5001 - Mint++

    This is a late 2011 ordered 2012 received, Mint++ Carvin SB 5001 Chambered Bass Guitar. This beauty has hardly been played (<8 hours playtime max). Great bass but this and some others have to go. See the pictures and you'll agree its a 9.9 of 10 (only pickguard finger scratches). Here's your chance to get a top level USA made boutique bass below cost and without the 7-10 week wait time.

    The reviews are correct, this is a killer bass and at the price point may be the best value hands down. Check out Ed Friedland's review of the the similiar Carvin:
