David Green's
Collection

Here is a huge and impressive collection of mostly Carvin basses with a few guitars and amps thrown in for good measure.  Below are (many) pictures of each, as well as details of all.  Very nice!

 

 

First up is David's 1983 LB40.  It's a classic instrument, finished in red, with a maple body and maple set neck with ebony fingerboard.  It has a single M22B humbucker with volume and tone controls, and a coil splitter.

From a similar era is this 1985 LB50, in beautiful clear gloss on flamed koa.  This is a great example of a classic Carvin "high-end" bass - at the time, you couldn't get one much fancier than this.  Other features of this one are stereo-wired M22B pickups with dual volume and tone controls, coil splitters, phase switch and chrome hardware.

On the right is David's LB70F.  It's tung-oiled maple with a maple neck and lined ebony fingerboard. 

On the left is a beautiful AC40, with a bound flamed koa top and blackburst edges.

Above and on the left is David's mid-90's LB70.  It has a maple neck and koa body wings, with black chrome hardware and Wilkinson bridge.

Here is David's recent LB70 (also shown above right).  It has a 5-piece maple and koa neck, walnut body wings, and gold hardware.

 

David has a trio of B4 basses.  On the far left (below) is a B4F, finished in sunsetburst on swamp ash.  It has active electronics, with an HB2/J99 pickup configuration, lined ebony fretless fingerboard, and chrome hardware.  The B4 in the center (below) is clear gloss on swamp ash with a maple fingerboard, active electronics and black chrome hardware.  On the right (below) is is David's B4 "Carvinstein", made from spare parts.  It has an alder body finished in walnut stain.  David has since upgraded this one with a new Hipshot bridge, gold knobs and active electronics.

Here's a group shot of David's LB70s.  From the left, LB70 walnut; LB70 maple; LB70 koa.

These are David's acoustic and acoustic electric Carvins.  From the left: Cobalt C850, AC40 (shown above), C450T bass, AC175 in tobacco sunburst.

Below are David's B4 basses.  From left to right, B4 "Carvinstein", B4 clear gloss on swamp ash, B4F sunsetburst.

On the left is David's 1982 Pro Bass 300, which is bought new.  It's loaded with JBL speakers, which was an upgrade from the MagnaLab speakers that were standard.  Below are some of David's other Carvin gear, including an R1000 Cyclops and some PA gear.  He also has an A100G and PB200.
