    I just got this bass in a trade but I knew that I was gonna need to move it. I recently moved to Arkansas and although I found a job, I'm not making near what I should be yet because I don't have my counselor's license which will take another 2-3 months to get. On top of that, I'm not actively playing anywhere so there's no sense in having a ton of basses lying around when I could use the cash.

    The bass is in really good shape. I would say mint or near mint, but I don't like to throw those terms around a lot. It is very clean. No major dings or dents that I can find. No rash anywhere on it. The bass is nice. :)

    The bass plays really well and sounds great. If you wanna check out some of the tones this baby will produce check these video's out:

    Carvin - Bon Jovi's Hugh McDonald interview - SB5000 bass - YouTube

    Nathaniel Kearney Jr Carvin SB5000 interview - YouTube

    Carvin Micro Bass Amp series demo - YouTube





    The Specs are:
    Alder body
    Flamed Maple top/Headstock
    5 PC Neck (Maple/Walnut)
    Satin Finish back of Neck
    Icon Headstock
    Stainless Steel Frets
    Black Chrome hardware
    Black Carvin Logo
    No Pickguard on Bass
    Ivory Graph Tech Tusq Nut
    Straplocks By Dunlop Installed

    This would cost over $1400 new! My price: $850.00 Shipped OBO. :)

    Pretty bass
  4. Counselors license huh? Looks like your impact bias isn't working too hard on you about selling this bass ;)

    Good deal, these are highly underrated basses!
  5. Why does it have a different headstock than the present SB5000's?
    Is it custom?
  6. Weight?

    You can order them with whatever Carvin headstock shape you want. Definitely custom.

  8. Ebony fretboard?
    That is really nice. Tempting, even.
