    Sorry for the crappy pic quality, I'm as bad at taking photos as I am at drawing. I'm good at one thing: downs-syndrome smiley faces.

    just got a Carvin catalog in the mail this week, i'm really gassing for a six stringer with a translucent finish :rollno:
     
  5. No pics...sorry...but mine is an AC-40 fretted...Spruce top, 2x2 headstock with a matching spruce laminate.

    A nice acoustic-like sound that works VERY well with acoustic guitars.
     
  6. beautiful in it's simplicity.

    No pic yet, but I just scored an LB-75A, quilt top deep enough to get lost in, very punchy and growly even with the stock electronics, yadayada. I just don't find much use in the mid control though.

    Walnut body
    Maple Neck
    Ebony fretboard
    Fretless
    Tung oiled neck and body

    I got this one used. I'm not sure of the type of wood, except that the fretboard is obviously Ebony. It has active J pickups and a Sunburst finish. Gloss coating on neck and fretboard


    I'll get pictures as soon as i can

    That quilt is insane, man.
     
  13. I've always liked that duo.

    Did you tell Carvin what kind of quilt you wanted or did you just leave it up to them?
     
  14. I used to have an LB70, but I sold.

    lovely.. that 88 looks great. I always think '88 was a good year for basses!

    Here is my newish BB75

    And me looking really stupid and uncomfortable:

    I love the flexibility of the bb75, it can do a brilliant MM and Jazz impression and a really phat smooth R'n'B sound with beautiful clarity in the upper register.

    Cheers
