It may surprise some, but today I traded my 1992 musicman stingray for a used (but mint) all koa lb70 carvin bass. This bass sounds extremely warm and articulate, yet has a very nice snap to the slap tone. The headstock, neck, and body are all koa and it has an ebony fingerboard and wilkinson bridge. Anybody else have one of these or played one? It seems like it cuts through in live situations with solid bottom and records extremely well. I have no complaints about the electronics and the wood and construction are flawless. This is the first time I've played a Carvin bass and I'm totally impressed.
