    [​IMG] Hello, its been awhile since I've posted on this page...But, I have a new bass..It's used a little, but it's new to me...and nice...Its a Carvin kiesel 5 string...just plays beautifully and sounds so good.. I love the J-bass / humbucker PU setup. It is also lightweight, and really I haven't found anything about this one that I don't like....

    One other thing, I doubt anyone has a bass like this one, if anyone has had one like this let me know your thoughts on them in general. seriously before I came across this one, I have never even considered Carvin as a bass really...anyway love this one....

    I don't think you can link to a talkbass photo. That said, I was able to click through. Beautiful bass! Bolt-on neck? What is the body wood? No logos?

    I tried it again...don't know why its so difficult to post pics on here..lol I just don't know how to do it yet...guess I will have to read the thread on posting photos...but anyways I tried to link it this way...probably won't work...weird that I can see both photos..The skinny, Its a Carvin kiesel Bk5A not quite sure what the body wood, I think that it is Swamp Ash...Its got a coil split for the Humbucker in the bridge position, and it has a push pull knob which is the master volume that switches between Active and Passive..it does work without a battery..So if that should happen during a gig, I'm still good. There is no Logo on it because it was a Kit...the bass plays absolutely beautifully and sounds excellent...It was a lucky find for me...
