  1. Finally!
    Wow! A 5 string bolt-on active bass, with an amazing color! And it sounds like hell :bassist: (It can't be compared with my little squier :D )!!!
    I'm so glad that i've found Carvin... 5 string left-handed bass is so rare under $1500! I got it for $1000! wow...
    Now I can't wait to play it in my band.. :)
    Look out!

    Congrats on the new bass. It sounds like it's everything you could've wanted (at least at this stage in your life.) Though I'm a righty, many of my musician friends are lefty so I know how difficult it can be to find good gear, when most guitar companies' lefty offerings are either token gesture of the cheap stuff or ultra-boutique custom.

    It's nice to see that Carvin could make you a sweet lefty bass without an unreasonable upcharge. It's also nice to see that companies like Warwick offer all their basses lefty with no upcharge.

    And one great thing about being a lefty bassist- you won't have idiot wankers coming up to you begging to try your instrument or just wankering on it w/o your permission. :p
