Been away from Carvin for a while. So they're not making AC basses any more? Special order?

They were retired january 2018. Normally when they retire a model, they have a sort of grace period where they will still take orders without the 10 day trial. However since it"s been so long, while you can still call with credit card in hand, I wouldn't hold my breath.

Thanks folks, I might just give it a try, credit card in hand.

Still loving my AE185, which looks to be discontinued as well :(

We unfortunately do not make them anymore, even if they are paid in full.
