FS Carvin six string bass

Discussion in 'For Sale: Bass Guitars' started by 0volts, Aug 31, 2008.


  1. Carvin six string bass in good condition. Normal playing wear, but no gouges or any marks that can be seen unless you are holding and inspecting the bass. Currently wearing new Carvin flatwound strings. Great sounding bass with a superb neck, six strings is just too many for me. Active/Passive switch makes for great versatility.
    Comes with Carvin tweed hard case which has seen some use, but functions correctly. $700 plus shipping, in the contiguous 48 states.

  2. man, that's a beauty!

    how are the electronics configured?
     
  3. The switch is for the Active/Passive. Then, it is Volume -Pickup blend - Bass -Mid -Treble.

    I think this is what you're asking.

    Seems like a very good price for the bass you have listed. A great deal on a quality six.

    Fretted or fretless?
     
  10. if fretted, I may be interested. I've got a fretless carvin six now and I love it, so I'm thinking of selling my G&L 5 and getting a fretted carvin six too. Oh, and how much is shipping to 46807?
     
  11. The bass is fretted. I'll check on shipping and let you know.
     
  12. cool. I think I may have a buyer for my 5 but not 100% yet. I'll let you know.
     
  13. How about $625 shipped? Anyone?

    It looks like a maple top on ash, do you know what the neck woods are? I'm interested :D

    thanks,

    jim
     
  17. To be perfectly honest, I'm not sure what the neck woods are?
    From the back, the outside stringers look like Koa, but that is just a guess. I am not the original owner, so I'm sorry I cant provide better info....
