Carvin basses

I'm planning to buy a XB75 Carvin bass soon... mainly because they do the lefties for no additionnal cost but I heard that the electronics were not so impressive.

What do you think of Carvin?

If you have any other suggestions I'll be glad to hear them. I'm looking for a 5-strings bass and I have $1500CND to spend (about $1200US).

All that is left is... aggression

can't you swap out the electronics if you don't like them?

carvin is the cheapest custom shop for a reason

the electronics are terrible and the 5 sring models suck

my best advice for a 5string is

Pedulla (all models like rapture j2 (best) and thunderbass

Sadowsky (standard 5)
