    Fucked up board, nobody reads it, not sure why I'm bothering posting here.
    Maybe it's because I just had yet another expensive car repair after having one a few weeks ago, and that I have like 4-5 basses and really only need one? I'm keeping two just to be a jerk.

    1987 Carvin bass, super cool all-black VG condition $400 no case.
    2002 Fender "Crafted in Japan" Geddy Lee Signature Jazz Bass, Excellent. $600 with "gig bag".

    Both have new Rotosound strings, play and sound so nice.

    I still have my fave '75 Precision bass, and recently super-scored an 80s Lado Medallion bass, and have my first bass ever, a '73 Univox Hi-Flyer that I bought new so I'm bassically set.

    These two are really great basses, but I'd also rather have more guitars.

  4. The Jazz Bass is really nice. I played that on a number of occasions and it was most excellent.

  5. If I needed a bass, that would be a fun one to play.

    I have the original white pickguard with the Jazz, included in the deal.

    And it is a great fuckin' deal. WOW

    what year is that carvin?

  11. I used to get the Carvin catalogue when I was in high school, late 80s.

    Everything seemed so clean.

    in the early 90s, my cousin got a ridiculous Carvin flying v....i think it was called the ULTRA V

    Oh, for sure. Lots of Carvin gear is worth a look. (including, I'm sure, Zom's bass).

    Near as I can tell, the Carvin is an '87, with some '88 features. I think it's neck-through body, has stereo outs.
    Several off the Jazz cats that I worked with in the studio had Carvins, they are indeed very well-made, good wood and top-quality parts. Some of their guitars and basses aren't ugly. I think mine looks cool.

    The Geddy Lee is not active, and has the original pickups. They sound good, but if I was going to keep it I'd probably upgrade them. From what I've heard, this "Crafted in Japan" model is the most desirable. There are plenty of Mexican-made out there. I will say, this thing feels great, super high quality build.

    that's the ultra v.
    this one was an updated model, of course, which meant it was....pointy-er.
    and it was a lefty. gloss black. so boss.

  20. i played a carvin pro bass 500 for many years. Mad respect
