    Hi TB,

    I'm changing my rig around and I need to free up the funds to do it. I'd rather not sell instruments for rig purposes, but I've got 3 Carvins, and this one was 'last in'. Up for sale is my Carvin BB75. The koa on this one is gorgeous. Here's the specs:

    KOA - Maple Neck/Koa Body
    TF - Tung-Oiled Satin Neck & Body
    5M - 5-Piece Maple Neck w/ 2 Koa Stripes
    5W - Asymmetrical Wide 5 String Neck
    KPH - Koa Headstock Matches Body Finish
    NIN - No Top Inlays - Side Dots Only
    HB - HB Large Alnico MM Style Bridge Pickup/J9A Neck
    31 - One Coil Splitting Switch
    BC - Black Hardware
    BL - Black Logo
    1.75" @ the nut

    Spec'd from the Carvin website, this BB75 new comes to about $1,400.

    This one has been played, and there are a few very small marks on the headstock by the G string tuner and the E string tuner. Not visible from 3 feet away (see 3 ft. away pic) but you can see it in the closeup shot. Some normal wear in the typical body spots (body by the G string, thumb resting locations). No major body dents or anything, but there are a few small scratch-shaped impressions on the back (won't even show up in photos, just full disclosure:)). I will also include a used MF deluxe gig bag. I'm selling this one for $625 shipped CONUS. $35 off for local Chicagoland pickup!

    Only trade interests I'm looking for (plus/minus cash as appropriate) are:

    > 1000w heads (capable of 600-800w into 8 ohms) such as MB SD1200, Carvin BX1200, or 1500 or 2000 series, etc.

    fEARful cabs (12/6 or 15/6)

    I also have a ton of other gear for sale as I'm changing my rig around completely...PM if interested (GB, SWR, Fishman, Parker, PreSonus...)

    The bass is still for sale. Bass didn't work put for previous buyer, and I've been playing and enjoying it. I needed to be sure I wanted to sell it again, and for the moment, its for sale.

    Only looking for a sale this time, and at the same price as before $625 shipped conus.

    Let me know if you have any questions!
