    Now $1100!
    For sale/trade is my Carvin SB5000 upgraded with a Mike Pope flex core preamp and Sadowsky hum-canceling pups. It comes with the OHSC. This bass has an ash body with a maple neck and fretboard. It plays amazing! The action is great and the neck is smooth as silk. The tonal options are very versatile with the Pope preamp. I recently added the vintage tone control module, and the Sadowsky pups really opened this bass up! The preamp layout is: stacked volume/tone control, pickup blend, stacked treb/bass & stacked high mid/low mid. (Boost&scut)

    As far as trades go I'd consider the following,
    EBMM Stingray (H or HH)
    Warwick $$ (German)
    Fender American Precision.

    If you think you may have something I'd be interested in run it by me. You never know! PayPal. Lower 48.
    Please PM any offers. Thanks for looking.

    Sound clip!!!! I made this with Garage band on my phone. I recommend using headphones. The first part is in passive and the rest is in active. Pickups were set to both. While in active I had the bass boosted just past the middle and the treble about the same.
