#72-BG bass (left) was new for 1962,
replacing the #71-BG. This bass was made from maple, with a
clear hand-rubbed finish, with a 25 1/8" short scale maple neck
with rosewood fingerboard. Electronics consisted of two AP-4
pickups with adjustable pole pieces, and volume and tone controls for
each, and a 3-way pickup selector.
Other features included a bone nut,
cast metal bridge and tailpiece and plastic pickguard.
The model #72-BG sold for $125.00, and
the model #82-BG, which was the same as the #72-BG, except for
non-adjustable pickups, sold for $105.00.
#4-BS (right) was the same as 1961. The features were the same as the
#72-BG bass and the #3-SGB Spanish guitar (which is what Carvin called
electric guitars in those days). Each neck had single
volume/tone controls, and a 3-way pickup selector to select the bass
pickup or either of the guitar pickups.
#4-BS sold for $229.90, and the #5-BS (without adjustable pickups)
sold for $199.90.
