Carvin SB4001 & SB5001
The evolution of the SB Series basses continues with Carvin's new chambered-body SB4001 and SB5001.
Designed in conjunction with bassist Sekou Bunch, the new chambered-body SB Series basses are designed to take the SB4000 and SB5000 to the next level, with a lighter-weight chambered body, standard flamed maple top, and matching flamed maple headstock. The bodies of these instruments are fully chambered, shaving as much as one pound off the overall weight of the instrument versus the SB4000/SB5000 - "a big plus for long gigs, or players who emphasize weight," the company says.
Other features of the SB4001 & SB5001 are an alder body, hardrock maple neck, ebony fingerboard, Carvin bridge with locking saddles, and Alnico single-coil J99A pickups. The SB4001 has passive electronics standard, and can be upgraded to active, while the SB5001 has active electronics standard. Both models can be outfitted with Custom Shop options, including top woods and body woods, finishes, fingerboard woods, inlays, hardware and more.
For a limited time, take advantage of Carvin's free case offer with your new SB4001 or SB5001 chambered body bass.
