This is my first time selling a bass here, so I make any faux pas be kind ...

Price new from Kiesel/Carvin for this same bass: $1,259 ($1,459 with case)

WHY I AM SELLING
I had a custom LB75 (with a rare, discontinued harlequin prismatique finish) stolen from me a decade ago. I bought the bass I'm selling here as a way to fill that gap. Recently, they brought back the harlequin prismatique finish for a limited time, so I sprung to have Kiesel recreate my stolen bass from scratch. Now that I have it, the Green Monster is up for sale!

FLAWLESS CONDITION
I've never used it at a gig. I'm the second owner: neither of us took the bass out of the house. There isn't a mark on this bad boy. The finish is like green glass. It looks like it just came from the factory.

TONS OF BANG FOR THE BUCK
I've owned four LB75s (this is the third of mine). They are great instruments, with a tone versatility unlike anything I've played. I have Warwicks ($$, Streamer, Buzzard), a Rickenbacker 4003s5 (the original, not the most-recent version), MusicMan Stingray 5 and Bongo 5, and a Sandberg California. All of those have their specific range of tones that they crush, but none have the versatility of the LB75.

[list=]18v active electronics (turn on passive with a pull of the volume knob)
[*]Icon headstock
[*]Stainless Medium/Jumbo frets
[*]HB Alnico Bridge Humbucker/J9A Alnico Neck Pickup
[*]Black hardware
[*]Original hardshell case: Carvin/Keisel doesn't seem to offer HSC for bass anymore (looks like only guitar), so this is a nice $200 bonus.
{*}A couple of scuffs and tears on the case telex, but it's in solid shape (damage on the case, not the instrument, as it should be[/list]

I have more pics if you request them.

Looks like jayceofbass' Carvin that he advertised on this forum in 2015. I really like the colour! I've owned two LB75's and a B4 with this pickup config, and all of them were great and really versatile.

I believe jayceofbass' ad also mentioned a piezo bridge.

Yup. I was the original owner. I can confirm everything Scott says on my end. I don't think it left my house two times. (I'm just not a 5 string guy anymore. If I can't do it with a D-Tuner on a 4 string I'm probably at the wrong gig. :lol: )

I will mention a couple of other things about the bass.

It has a maple neck with swamp ash body wings.
There is indeed a piezo bridge on it.
Fretboard is ebony.
It really does have a HUMONGOUS range of tones.

I think the price Scott is selling it for is totally fair and someone should snatch it up.

One more bit of trivia...... I actually ordered this bass from the Carvin website exactly 5 years ago today.

I really dig that. Beautiful. Shame I'm not a 5 stringer either though.

I have no idea how to mark this "sold," but it has sold.
