Peter Young's TBS-4
Carvin BBS ID: Peter the so so bass player

Bought from the In-Stock section of, here is the first Timothy B. Schmit model to be featured on the site.  Peter says:

"I proudly submit Ruby for your open TBS4 spot in the Carvin Museum. She looks, plays and sounds great. I like Timothy B. Schmit, but didnít pick her because of the signature. It was for the features. The BMF, NIN with tung oil back of neck, pickups. I just love the one knob idea and prefer passive electronics. About a year ago I saw a band with an awesome lead guitarist. He was playing a Carvin, and couldnít stop telling me how glad he was that he bought it. So I checked out for a couple of months. Then one day Ruby showed up "in stock". I knew immediately I had to have her. I was still nervous about buying before seeing and playing first, but I felt pretty confident that it was a good deal. When UPS delivered it, the driver said, "Carvin, you buy the good stuff." I unpacked her and just looked at her for about 20 minutes. Finally plugged in and havenít played anything else since."
