Sorry to hear about your issues, it really is a good looking bass.

I think the photos look pretty good. Crooked jack plate wouldn't be a deal breaker for me. Backwards blend would really bug me.

The pickups and warble thing is puzzling and disturbing. As most here know, one of these days I'm going to order a new Carvin/Kiesel - either a PB4 or an Aries - with SCP and RAD single coil.

That was the plan anyway, but this thread is giving me second thoughts.

This bass has been returned, due to the aforementioned issues. And then it took 13 days (9 week days) from initial request, to get a return label. No resistance, it just took that long, for some reason........

Coincidentally, a bass with a similar look, is in stock, right now. very different spec. But visually reminiscent. And the exact same feather weight. For $200 less.

Sorry that didn't work out for you. That looked like a really nice build! Also I'll vouch that the pic of the bass on the case is the most accurate representation of the light blue.

I wanted to add that my blend is backwards as well. I thought I was imagining things, but from hearing it from another I now feel I'm right. At least it sounds like an easy fix.

Hearing that basses are still shipping with backward blends, makes me wanna facepalm.

Wow, these issues have me kind of nervous about my new JB200 build. I hope it is perfect. My 80`s Carvin`s are so danged nice.
