Pretty neat bass design. I know this isn't at all new, none the less I have always been impressed with the thought behind his design. Anyone ever play one of these?

`

IIRC, Peavey used to make the BB sig model, and
I seem to recollect it having zero balls. Makes a
bit of logical sense, given BB's affinity for playing
piccolo bass ... again, thaz IIRC :-/

New basses are red. Used basses are black.

A friend of mine ordered a fretless version with the coated fingerboard. I played it when he first got it. I thought it was built well and played nice but was a little too bright for my tastes. I preferred my SB4000 with the tone knob. He decided to return it within the 10 day trial period.

Brian Bromberg is from Tucson and many of his (early) basses were built by a local luthier named Bob Mick.

Brian still loves Bob's work and I would not be surprised if his current designs were influenced by Bob.

Bob started building basses in the 90's (I have an early 5 string) and his designs were based on Mike Tobias' work.

I played one of his signature basses years ago when they were being produced by Dean IIRC - some fugly blue/green color with gold hardware. I liked the design and ergonomics of it - especially the access above the twelfth fret however I did not care for the Piezo at all. None the less I would like to give one of these Carvins a go. I do like the thought in design and EQ/pickup - the onboard master gain for example makes great sense to me. I thought the tones on the video were tasteful and varied.
