    Just scored this vintage (late 70's, early 80's) Carvin LB-50. The pics do it no justice at all. The birdseye and flaming are much more pronounced in person. She's in exceptional condition as is the original (optional) hardshell case. Pics are right after I unboxed her. Going to give her a quick setup and play! More later or tomorrow! :)

    I"ve got 2 of those. Bought one, really liked it and got another. I left one stock, and put a pair of TV Jones Thunderblades in the other.
    These are really well made basses and I enjoy them.
    Good luck with yours!

    Good looking bass, & sweet control center. Congrats!

    At the risk of being an ignorant young squirt, I didn't even know Carvin had been around that long.
