I ordered this bass new. It's a great Carvin. Very light. Pickups are Carvin with active Carvin preamp. Body is chambered ash. $650 is an absolute steal! Geeezus!

I paid close to $1500 for this bass. I just got out of the 5-string game and the modern J sound, but this is a killer playing and sounding 5-string. Plays like butter.

Give this guy at least $850, c'mon.
