Any idea what this is? The only place that says "Carvin" is on the tuners. The head and body shape does not match anything in the Carvin museum as far as I can see.

That's not a Carvin. Looks to me like it might be a homemade job using Carvin parts - the bridge is a Hipshot as was used on Carvin basses in the early/mid 2000s, and you mentioned there are Carvin tuners. It might be a Carvin neck, but Carvin never made a bass with a 2 X 3 headstock, and never installed EMGs. And there has been no body shape like that.

My guess: custom made/home made bass.

I appreciate your opinion. I have had the feeling may be home made. The builder did a good job as far as it being a resonant instrument.
