    Right, as the subject says, I'm offloading my Carvin BB75... Here's the spec: 5-string, ash body with quilt maple top, dark purple transparent finish (makes the top look LOVELY), maple through-neck, birds-eye maple fingerboard, quilt cap with the purple finish on headstock, black hardware, MM + J pickup arrangement with 3-band EQ with coil tap, Dunlop straplocks, and Carvin hardshell case. Cosmetically, in almost perfect condition apart from a small crack in the finish on the forearm chamfer on the top bout of the body. The bass is also very light, somewhere around 8lbs.

    The tone? Very nice and surprisingly old-school for a modern neck-through active bass. Would work great with a blues or R&B-type band. Unfortunately, I play hard rock/metal and I don't think the tone is quite right for me.

    These are quite rare over here, and I'm not necessarily trying to sell it - I'd like to trade/part-exchange it for a more aggressive-sounding five, bolt-on or neck-through, possibly something along the lines of a Stingray 5, a Lakland 55-02, an Ibanez ATK305, SR1305 or BTB 5-string, Tobias Killer B 5 or W.H.Y. If I sell it, I'd be looking for £700 or so for it.

    I've attached a few pics...

    Are you interested in a Warwick Streamer Pro-M 5 string??

    P.S. I'm in Iceland so the shipping is not that much
