It's "amimbari", T. Wink

Wow! I haven't seen a Carvin stereo bass in a really long time! That's quite nice, and it's a bummer that the guy is selling due to health issues.

My concern (yet again) is the string angles on the headstock. All five of them bend to the right, and I'm wondering if the trem doesn't stay in tune because of this. Still, it is a nice bass!

And that headstock's so long...I'd probably whack it on everything.

reminds me of the old epiphone hockeysticks....that is a VERY Cool looking bass..700+, not for me today Smile

I'm on the major quest for pointy head LEFTYS!!!

here's one I am waiting to get delivered that cost less than 100 Wink
as long as the neck is nice, I'm gonna throw my jackson parts bass electronics in it.


I just woke up from a nap after our Pittsburgh Marathon show today ( rained drizzle rain all morning for the show but we were under tents )
16000 people was a record breaker participant runners today and a couple thousand people watching them from the bridge were were playing at !!

and yep, I used the Kramer/Charvel, because I didn't want to bring out anything good knowing it was gonna get wet affraid
I also brought the 4x10 and 2x15 I just made....... p.e.r.f.e.c.t combination for outdoors.

ah.. I didn't even think learning English from a teacher with a huge northern Texas accent could come close to that mis pronunciation of the name.

am-ber-lai compared to a-mim-bari Rolling Eyes

I'm having real thoughts about the Kahler on the Charvel, and seeing how it would look on that instead so when I get it, I'll see whats up

i love carvin basses.

they are so dang expensive!

maybe someday.

carvin has introduced an alternate headstock style that may be more kahler friendly. i'de need to go find it and i'm just too lazy now.

not that I WOULD own one, but if there was a thunderbird which looks like gumby in the first place, and a head that is a washburn/new jackson head...now THAT'S a gumby-bass Smile

I think Mike that you would prefer a Pokey bass over a Gumby bass.

Get it?

Pokey? Laughing

you can believe if I had the cash to have a custom bass made in lefty, it would be an ED ROMAN Lightning, but he can keep the 4500.00 and 4-5 month wait it takes to have it made.

a little sidenote laugh, now that our other guitarplayer is also lefty, we are ganging up on the righty and poking him now with our TWO pointy headstocks, instead of just one --hahaha

So if we ever walked into a bar where you guys were gigging, we'd know which one was the righty guitarist from the holes poked in his head, right? Laughing

a few holes in his head would be our righty guitarplayer allright, but not from pointy guitarheads I think it is a disease called guitar-ego-thelioma or something like that. Holes in his head where brain material should be.

I think in the 80's they called those people "airheads"?

and you know WHAT? I just realized this thread is titles 90's 5string Kahler, and shoot - i'ze got won uf them thingys I juss can't figre ut how to do de squealy benndy noises yet, and for some reason this one dont have a hole for a bar so I'm stumped Mad

Now there's a blast from the past! Wink I had one of those stock Kahler bridges before, and I looked at it two ways. It was either the versatile bridge I had ever seen OR it was the hardest to set-up properly. The thing has a lot of variables as far as how it's set, and it intimidated me.

And no, I didn't set out to actually own one. I had won an auction on eBay back around 2002 where the seller didn't post a picture, but only provided a description. I didn't know that Kahler made stock bridges, and this one was selling for cheap, so I bid on it thinking it was a tremolo bridge, and I won. When I got the package, and discovered the stock bridge, I went "WHOA!" I wrote the seller explaining that I didn't realize what they had been selling, and they told me they did have a Kahler 2410 bridge that they would send me free of charge. Apparently, the auction was simply an inventory liquidation from a music store that had closed, and the seller didn't really know about guitar hardware at all, as they had just offered to sell extra items for quick cash. I think the purchase price was something like $100, and I stil got to keep the stock bridge. I late sold it on eBay for $50. Wink

this thread is for 5stringers, but Smile

here's my other doohicky with no wammy bar ---

.

one comment I will make is I HATE the fact that they mount the baseplate on an angle..looks retarded, but I assume they do that for maximum movement for setting intonation, which is ANOTHER pain in the *** because as soon as you loosen the saddle it moves side to side also, and you can't adjust the crummy thing with full string tension either like a normal springloaded saddle bridge Sad
