Scott (Gorgula) was a great guy to deal with! the Carvin i bought from him was in great condition, just as he described. all it has on it is little tiny hairline scratches, but every bass has those. the bass truly is in mint conditions (save the scratches), especially for a 10 year old bass. he was a great person to work with and he answered all of my many many many many questions that i asked him. i would give him a 10/10. great guy to deal with.
