    A few weeks ago, I grabbed one of these (used) online. Along with Yamaha and Peavey, Carvin/Kiesel is some serious bang for the buck. My only two basses are now Carvin...Icon 5, and now the B5.

    I did a lengthy review for YouTube, so check it out if you're curious. Btw, I'm not left-handed...vid is flipped. :cool:

    Nice! It seems to have a very "even" tone across the fretboard. Good clarity. I had an LB76 from that era (maybe a little earlier). Super solid construction.

  3. I really love my B5.... I’m glad you were able to work out a good deal on that one. New they were a great deal and used, they’re incomparable!
