[quote="LizzyD"]Jazzrat, that is really cool looking! I don't think I've ever seen one of those before. Funny, it almost makes me wonder if Carvin was emulating that with the AC40. quote]

I was actually looking for an Ac-40 when I saw this on e-bay.
I liked the fact that it had a magnetic pup in addition to the piezo.
I actually got it from somebody in your neck of the woods.

My only 2 non-Carvin basses are a Washburn 4 string (my first bass) and an Ibanez BTB1000 6 string. The Ibanez won't be around for long though. Its been sitting in its case for the last year and a half.

Here are two of my non-Carvin basses. Well, I only have one Carvin bass, for now.

First up, I think it's a 1982, Fender Re-Issue 1957 (first year) Precision Bass. My main bass for a long time. I played in metal bands, and even a wedding band with her. Sounds great through a Marshall 1959SL too. (Whatever happened to tube bass amps?)



Next up, a bass I put together with parts I got on Ebay. It's a full size P-Bass body, with a 3/4 scale neck. I'm mainly a guitarist, so it makes it a little easier for fast playing. It has a P-bass pick-up in the bridge, and a Gibson Marauder Bass pick-up near the neck. Gibson branded Schaller tuners, and an all brass bridge. It was originally black, but I did a Rustoleum paint job on it. Kinda like a butterscotch Tele color.



Well, I might as well put my Carvin in here. It's a late 70's LB-50-F, with fret markers, and M22-B's.

Yeah, Grandon does a nice job. I kind of feel bad even owning it - I'm really a guitar player, but needed a bass as I fill in at church about once a month. I'd been playing another guy's Squier P-Bass, and just wanted something that sounded and played a little better. I did some snooping on ebay (mostly for used LB75's), and somehow got in contact with Grandon. He made me a heck of a deal on the thing (although his regular prices are unbelievable anyway). I already know he's got quite a backlog, but he's definitely one to check into if you want a really custom bass.

I have to say that the most impressive thing about the bass is the sound. The Bartolini pickups and Aguilar preamp are an awesome combo, and you can get an amazing range of tones from them.

The bass balances really nicely, despite the very beefy neck. The major advantage of the big neck is an unbelievably solid low B. Its also got an asymetrical carve to the neck, so it's quite comfortable to play.

I don't have any. 8-[

But here's my dad (RIP) with his non-Carvin bass:

23-pound peacock bass caught in Brazil.
Just one pound off of the world record at the time!


21-pound peacock bass caught in Brazil.

Those two pics were taken a year or two apart.
I think he's wearing the exact same thing in both!
Fashion statement? NO.
Fisherman? YES!

My trusty Mexi Fender Jazz Bass. Soon to have it's wiring and possibly pickups replaced and shielded so it'll be a nice and quiet bass. I've had it for over 10 years, and it's only got one dint, and it's just in the clear coat, so i'm trying to find out how to putt in some kind of poly or nitrocellulose stuff that makes cracks go away.

I am currently playing a Spector 5-string, while waiting for my new LB75 to be built. I bought that bass, right out the rear door of the Samick instrument plant in Suwon - South Korea, while stationed close-by................


I borrowed an LB75, the bass that convinced me that I need my very own LB75, but built to MY specs and with humbuckers...................


I bought a Carvin SC90 guitar some 10 years ago, and that also convinced me that Carvins are great instruments..................

Once my new LB75 bass arrives, I am hoping to drop my Spector down to a back-up position.....................

Hey Jason,

Thanks for the kind words on your GW Bass!

My Carvin bass is a 12 year old LB76 I ordered new 12 years ago... I've modded it with big honkin' 6 string soapbar pickups and stereo wiring...

My non-Carvin basses are:

- `71 P-bass, modded with DiMarzio Model One pickup under neck, wired for stereo
- GW Basses 6 string model, singlecut, wired for stereo, serial # 0001
- Les Paul "mutt" bass I built from a bolt on neck les paul copy guitar and an epiphone bass neck....
- Brice 5 string Jazz bass copy (just bought it cheap, it's actually kinda cool!)
- Yamaha attitude standard 5 five string bass, badly hacked up and I'm currently restoring / modding.... (new fingerboard, neck repair, wired for stereo, etc...)
- Badly broken Rickenbacker 4001 from 1977... repairing the badly broken neck, then shaving 1/4" off the top of the body, putting on a burgundy dyed through burl maple top, multilayer binding, custom pickups, gold hardware, silver & black paisley pickguard, etc....

I'm also working on a new DC-1 5 string that I might keep it if doesn't sell before I finish it... we'll see!
