    hey all,

    just special ordered a Carvin AC50F fretless 5 NO LINES. thought some would like have a play by play report on Carvin's Custom Shop.

    i placed the order yesterday, very enthusiastic sales person.

    i sent him pictures of a Carvin AC50 fretted that i saw in the Santa Ana Carvin store that i wanted to use as a reference for the koa grain pattern. GOOD THING too, he forgot to add the tortoise shell binding. the pics reminded him of that.

    here's a link to the pics:

    i was told that the bass would take 7 weeks to build. maybe sooner.

    i really like this bass...i told him that i wanted low action as well.

    the 10 day trial period is a godsend...i have no worries, and with only a 10% deposit...minimum outlay.

    we'll see how it goes, and if there's interest, i'll post updates.
