Hey guys, I just got my new Carvin Bass last week. It's the first bass I have ever bought for myself, my Fender Jazz was a present 7 years ago. It sounds great. One thing I'm going to have to do is change my playing style, because compared to playing on the Fender, I clank every fret, and you can hear tons of string noise when I move my fingers. It hears everything! Pic 1 Pic 2 Pic 3 Pic 4 Pic 5 Personally, I think it looks great and has great tone and sustain. I am completley impressed.
