    Had someone come into our gated parking garage and go to town on several cars over the weekend, mine being one of them. I had made the irresponsible decision to leave my bass in the floorboards after my Saturday night gig, as I had church the following morning. The one night, right?

    Anyway, here's the particulars - I've been tearing my apartment apart trying to find where I wrote down the damn serial, because I can't find it anywhere.

    Carvin SB5000
    Tort pickguard
    Stainless steel hardware
    Maple neck
    Birdseye fretboard
    mother-of-pearl inlays
    Duncan straplocks
    Brown Levys guitar strap


    If you take a close look at the bridge, you'll notice the adjustment screw for the A saddle is missing. It's been this way for as long as I've owned the bass. You can also see that the bridge pup volume pot is missing a mother-of-pearl cap. I have the cap sitting on my table, in anticipation of being glued back on. One thing not pictured here: there is a small 1"x1.5" American Flag sticker adjacent to the bridge.

    I'll be combing ebay, craigslist and the pawnshops for the next few months I'm sure, but if anyone sees a pretty white Carvin floating around, kindly throw me a line, yeah?
