    SOLD!

    I've decided to put my basically new SB5001 up for sale so I can scratch the itch for a crimson red or trans blue SB. I know I'll be taking a hit on this since I just bought it a couple months ago, but I'm going to give it a shot anyway. It has maybe 3 or 4 hours of playing time on it total. The only thing that tells you it isn't brand new are the light fingernail marks on the pickguard from a little slapping and the new DR HI-beams I just installed. (Factory Carvin nickel strings included.) I really do love everything about this bass but every time I see a red or trans blue bass I decide I really want it.

    The tone and feel are amazing! It's so versatile, this bass can do anything. It weighs in at 8.7 lbs on my digital bathroom scale. It will come with everything as new from Carvin, including the hardcase, warranty card, etc. Below are the options from my Carvin invoice:

    SB5001 - 5 S BASS, CHAMBERED BODY

    ASH - SWAMP ASH BODY

    FD04 - DEEP ORANGEBURST FLAME

    FPH4 - MATCHING FLAMED HEADSTOCK

    BMF - BIRDSEYE MAPLE FRETBOARD

    ABD - ABALONE DOT INLAYS

    STF - STAINLESS STEEL FRETS

    BC - BLACK HARDWARE

    BG - BLACK PICKGUARD

    PK - KNOBS w/ BLACK INLAYS

    SL - STRAPLOCKS BY DUNLOP INSTALLED

    BL - BLACK CARVIN LOGO

    HC8W - HARDSHELL WIDE BASS CASE, BLK

    Total was $1633 plus $29 shipping minus a $100 promotional discount for a grand total of $1562 out the door. With the Hi-beams I have $1585 in it.

    I will take $1185 shipped CONUS. SOLD!! Quick, someone grab this beautiful bass before I do the math and decide I am keeping it!

    I may consider trading down to another bass, but ultimately I will be ordering another Carvin so I would need to come out with some cash to put toward that.

    Let me know if you have questions!

    They are amazing instruments. They really can do just about anything. And I agree, it would make a perfect companion to your blueburst SB!

    I wouldn't let this beauty go. That deep orange burst finish is stunning. Save up for another SB...don't let this one go!

    You gotta do what's right for you. That said, I love my Carvin (Icon 5W)!

    For what it's worth, ArcticT, I'm glad you didn't take it down after it sold. I love looking at this bass. If it were available for sale today I would buy it in a heartbeat. Every time I look at it I think I'm going to order one very similar to this one. Gorgeous is right!

    (sorry about the necro-posting)
