Carvin / Kiesel Icon 6 string bass guitar

 Carvin Icon series 6 string bass guitar. original owner and ordered the bass from the custom shop a couple of years back. It is an amazing instrument with a lot of great features

The Bass Specs
Walnut Body w/ Flamed maple top in Honeyburst Finish

Maple / Walnut neck thru construction w/ Flamed maple veneer in a matching Honeyburst like the bodycarvin6string

 

The neck is also an Asymmetrical build which means the bass side is thicker than the treble side of the neck and improves playability and comfort. 34 inch scale
Birdseye (Extremely figured) maple fingerboard with 24 stainless steel med / jumbo frets. It has side dot markers but no inlays (lets you see that gorgeous wood!)carvin6string2carvin6string5

Carvin Soapbar Humbuckers with an 18 volt 3 band EQ and adjustable Mid freq knob under the mid range frequency pot. It has the upgrade Hipshot A style bridge w/ Graphtech Ghost piezo saddles and blend system (100.00$ upgrade). It gives you a nice wooden acoustic tone that rings.
A white Graphtech nut that matches the fingerboard almost perfectly and Dunlop Straplocks to complete the package.carvin6stringheadcarvinneck

I’ve recently set the bass up w / brand new medium gauge Elixir nickel strings (135 – 105 – 85 – 65 – 45 – 32) and put two new 9 volts into it. The action is nice and low and is pretty even across the entire board. The bass also comes with a soft shell case that is very sturdy and doesn’t have a scuff mark on it itself

The bass has two dings since it was a gigging instrument. A blemish on the back of the body and a blemish on the top of the headstock. It does not effect the playability of the instrument whatsoever. Otherwise it is in pristine condition!

 1979-1980 Fender Bullet Bass Deluxe

Fantastic condition very early release of the Made in USA Fender Bullet Bass Deluxe. E0 serial numbers began in the second half of 1979 and this bass is one of the first 200 stamped with that code. 1979 bullit bass

 

The bass is in fantastic condition with a really nice setup that is low, in tune, and easy to play. Frets are in good shape and the truss rod has movement left in it and was just recently loosened (yay!).bullitback

 

The bass has a few minor dents and dings as pictured and a small spot on the pick guard where the previous owner went for the truss. I am the second owner and have had the bass for roughly 10 years. The tone pot is wired to be both a high pass and a low pass opening up tonal options for the instrument without cosmetically altering Fenders original intention. Comes with original case.  E0 SN was used between 79-81 and this is one of the first 200 in the run which makes it likely a 79, hard to say for sure.bullit fender

We have not had one of these before But here is some info i got from the site :’In summary, Brawley Guitars combines Yankee ingenuity and global capability. Our American designs are executed in Korea using maple from Canada, rosewood from India, swamp ash from Louisiana and frets from Japan made from German alloy! This is truly an international achievement that bears my name, my dream, and my passion. I hope you’ll take the time to play a Brawley guitar or bass and see how dreams can come true.

Sterling by Musicman Bass Guitar

This Sterling S.U.B. Is a BEAST! When I purchased it, The “sub” logo was sanded off and a “StingRay” decal was put in its place but done poorly (see first pic of headstock).sterling by music man basssterling head  sterling-by-mm.jpg sterling-by-mm.jpg back

 

 

I refinished the headstock by sanding it down evenly, applying a new waterslide (decal), and protecting it with several coats of lacquer. Finally, I sanded the neck with 400 grit, 2000 grit, and then 0000 steel wool and treated the bare wood with teak oil to protect it from sweat and other unwanted oils. The neck is now drastically faster (smoother). As a used guitar typically does, there a few minor scratches but overall it is in beautiful condition.
