a one-year hiatus, Fender instruments (as well as Martin) were
offered in the Carvin catalog. For a mere $219.50, (plus
$49.95 for a case) you could order a Fender Precision bass,
right out of the Carvin catalog. No options were offered;
this was the standard blond finish/black pickguard of the era.
In addition to the P-Bass, Carvin also offered the Stratocaster
(with & without tremolo), the Telecaster, Musicmaster and Esquire. Carvin also sold Fender steel guitars
(in 2, 3 and 4 neck configurations) and several amplifiers,
including the Bassman and Fender Twin.
