Carvin Debuts PB4 and PB5 Classic Bolt-Neck
Carvin unveils the next generation of bolt-neck basses, the PB4
and PB5 Classic Bolt-Neck Basses. These exciting new instruments
take the looks that bassists appreciate, and combines them with
contemporary features as found on other Carvin basses. The PB4 and
PB5 are more than just another take on a classic design; Carvin's
locking bass bridge, premium hand-selected tone woods, sculpted
neck heel, and new split-coil alnico pickup make the PB4 and PB5
true player's basses, with exceptional playability and tone
combined with unsurpassed made in the USA quality.
The passive SCP split-coil P-type humbucking pickup is designed
for both 4 and 5 string basses. Each coil incorporates a single
large Alnico V magnet and vintage plain enamel wire is used for its
sweet and natural well-rounded bottom end, full punchy mids and
dynamic highs. The single alnico magnet means that you won't get
any signal drop off like you do from a conventional P-type pickup
if the strings are not perfectly centered between the pole pieces.
Controls consist of a master volume control and tone control. You
can add a single coil jazz-style pickup in the bridge position of
your PB4 or PB5 for a P/J pickup configuration. The P/J pickup
option can be ordered with active or passive electronics, giving
you a wide range of tones suitable for all style of music.
Like all Carvin Custom Shop instruments, you can choose from a
complete selection of options, including body, neck, fingerboard
and exotic top woods; solid, translucent and deep finishes; inlays
and fretwire; hardware color and much more. You can order your new
PB4 or PB5 exactly the way you want it, to suit your personal
aesthetics and playing style.
