    I have no experience with the Carruthers bass.
    I don't have a hard case, but there is one available from the builder for $200.

    The bridge on my bass does have adjustment wheels if you want to raise up the action to get it closer to the feel of your regular bass. Between setting the action & panning between the 2 pickups, there is quite a nice tonal range available.

    PM replied. For fastest response contact me via email.

    The post above re: the Carruthers was in response to some posts that were removed from this thread, presumably because they were slightly off topic.

    Thanks,

    Joe

    Scale length is 41.5". Bass is 3 years old. Barbera pickup & standard pickup, and you can mix between them.
