I don't go there too often. It's about 35 miles from my house, and I'm not usually going that way. But I've been thinking (again) about different basses, and since they're in my home town, why not try them again? I liked them better this time. I tried LB's, BB's and XB's, mostly sixers. I had some time, so I twiddled the knobs quite a bit and was able to get some sounds I liked. I do think the XB B string sounds better, what with the extra inch and all, but I thought they all sounded pretty good. I've been playing some heavy basses lately (mostly my franken-P and Dean 6), and the Carvins felt nice and light. I'm starting to like the compact body shape of the neck-thrus, especially with the rounded body sides option. They felt comfortable. I even liked the MM-style pup. So anyway, I'm thinking about it. What I don't understand is why they have basses on display that aren't set up, especially when you're at the factory showroom. It's not like they've been shipped across the country. The XB had action about half an inch high at the 20th fret. The BB76 had a C-string piezo saddle that didn't work. The LB76 I looked at also had high action and I could barely turn the bass knob. These are the kinds of things that make me wonder if I really want a Carvin. The ones I played where everything worked, and the action wasn't four miles high, were pretty nice.
