All sorts of things happened with Carvin in the 70's.  The decade started with black-and-white catalogs, German-made Hofner necks, Hawaiian steel guitars, and would end with a color catalog, and set-necks on totally made-by-Carvin instruments.  Things would change often throughout the decade, but by 1979, the basses that would pave the way for the modern Carvin would be offered.  Additionally, the general format for the catalog that was introduced in 1976 would last until the sweeping changes of 1988.
