So, you have a two-pickup instrument, not 3. The two pickups are neck, and bridge. The second large knob - the one toward the bridge, is the pickup pan selector. Twist the knob 100% of the way toward the neck, and you will solo the neck pickup. Twist it 100% of the way toward the bridge, and you will solo the bridge pickup. What is nice about bass technology is that it was created later than guitar technology, and started from a more developed perspective (less heritage). Most guitars don't have this ability. Most guitars have switching, not panning. The small knob closest to the neck is the high, the middle is mid, and the knob furthest back is low. You can sweep these separately, and tone shape accordingly. You are my HERO of the Day!!! Your Immediate response was amazing.I love the bbs community. Guitar guys are ok, but.LOL So, no stacked knob, I assume. Correct? Like, the bottom and top of the same knob rotate separately. Also, can you give us a shot of the body backside. Coaching i will say this. Put the three tone knobs in the center detent position and leave them there, with no tone tweaking, for several live performances or band practices in a row. Get to know your pickups and what they sound like panned and solo'd until you get into tone tweaking. What pickups are those? I'm not sure which pickups they are, it's very difficult finding info on these. My friend had it Built early to mid 2000's. He can't remember the exact year. lol. He just signed up for Medi-Care. I was surprised to see that it has a spacer wood between the Alder and Walnut. Beautiful Bass! It's a fretless. Here are a few more pics.

I don't mean to be irritating, but if you take close up pics of the pickups we can identify what type of pickups they are. For now I will say they are stock single coil J99's, but that's just a guess.

I believe J99's were the stock single coils back then. It's highly doubtful that there's a J99 at the neck, but a stacked humbucker at the bridge (same shape). She's a beauty. Screen Shot 2017-10-23 at 10.57.32 AM.png Screen Shot 2017-10-23 at 10.56.58 AM.png They both look the me.? Please REGISTER or LOG IN. Yes, they look the same to me too. Looks like they have a black dot in front of the Carvin logo, which would make them J99 single coils as gnp reasoned. Does this sound right? The info on the museum site will tell for sure, as can some even older - time BBS members. Also, depending on when the bass was built, the mid control may be the one closest to the bottom of the guitar. The first iteration of that active module had only treble and bass boost and cut. Later the Mid was added, but it was an option, so it was stuck on the bottom. My 2002 B4A is set up like that. My B5, which was made later, has the mid control in the middle, where you'd expect it. Is there no chance of battery drain in passive when the instrument cord is plugged in. I just got 2 of the lb piezo basses and would love to just pull the volume knob vs unplugging every time I put down the bass. Also regarding the dots. I have two pickup's with brown dots and I believe I found on museum that they are j99a. Anyone know the diff between black dot j99 and brown dot j99a? Please REGISTER or LOG IN. Thanks for the info Various generations of the preamp could get fried by putting a battery in backwards, or changung the battery while plugged in. I dont know enough about the details.only that they can be issues. The administrators will block all e-mail addresses violating the established BBS rules. It comes with a solid, double cutaway body made of alder. For the basic specs list Carvin opted to omit the top wood covers, and decided to make them available as options.

In the bridge section of this bass, Carvin installs a hipshot bridge with four saddles and string-through construction. Basic hardware color is chrome, but black and gold are also available. In the pickups area Carin installs a pair of their own pickups. Master volume, pickup blend knob, stacked bass, stacked mids and sweep knobs make up the controls. Neck is made of maple and it is attached to the body with a neck-through-body joint. Ebony is the material of choice for the fingerboard.If you have more information about Carvin LB70 Active Bass please write a review.

If anything, it was a parts purchase. 1) The first problem is that I'm not sure if I've identified it since someone refinished it or it was from some kind of a kit. 2) It has some wires off or missing from the battery compartment and I have never seen this kind of amp before. I really love how this bass feels and it would be a shame to scrap it for parts if there is a way to get it working. I will post pictures once I figure out how. I also wanted to mention that I think this site is pretty awesome. There is so many goodies buried in this site. It will take quite sometime to read through here. Kudos to the site owner for creating this forum.I'm thinking it is the bolt-on version. Very likely was the kit with a home finish.

This model (and the 5 string B5) were parts kit basses sold by Carvin for people who wanted to finish and assemble their own bass at a very reasonable price. They offered guitar kits as well.But not mad about it.

Click to expand. My brother got me one years ago. It turned out pretty cool. Later on I gave it to a friend to finish. The finish turned out pretty rough. Butbthe bass player great. I wound up giving it back to him so my nieces could play around on it. Then you can put an active pre in it later if you want.I tried to use my common sense and solder a battery to the board on the inside but that didn't work.Click to expand. Pull for passive mode. In passive mode, it needs no battery installed. So, if the only problem is a battery connection, the bass should work in passive mode. The volume and pickup blend controls (the 2 big knobs) will work, but the 3 EQ controls will do nothing in passive mode.I'm waiting for a new Gotoh battery case. I take it to the next step then. I shop at the local goodwill. On occasion the person who prices things prices low if an item looks broken. I've gotten lucky a few times.They would be likely be glad to sell you a new pre amp, as well, but it may not so much dead as not properly connected. For 20 bux you did great. If it were me, I'd find out what it needs to get the pre working and tear it all down to refinish and reassemble. Once you go through it, it will not only be a decent, functioning bass but also something you can look back on with pride, knowing you saved it and learned in the process.It is my first post here and it really just a shot in the dark.

IMO, that was an excellent score.When the unit failed the second time, I was forced go passive- but I learned to like it. Making adjustments at amp works well for me. I kinda prefer passive now.But I still record a lot and I prefer to be passive in that regard. I tried it last night (since it's only working passively anyway) and it has a really nice sound without doing much to it on the amp sideI would be interested to hear about current customer service experiences. I am assembling a Carvin B5 kit, paint is curing, the body is waiting for the neck. An Aguilar on board preamp will be installed. Sometimes I am proud of my paint job. Sometimes I wonder what the heck I was thinking. Be inspired. or mortified. Anyway, I anticipate banging up the bass at parties and bars.I think their preamps are pretty much their weak link anyway. If you like how it sounds passive, just run it passive. You really aren't missing a whole lot with their preamp.I think their preamps are pretty much their weak link anyway. You really aren't missing a whole lot with their preamp. Click to expand. No passive mode. Kind of blah sounding. I replaced it with the Carvin 3 band pre-amp. It sounds much better. Clearer, more punch. The 3 band has a passive mode and an internal trim, so, it's fairly flexible. I'm sure other preamps like the Aguilar or Batolini are a little better, but the Carvin 3 band is good enough that I don't feel there's enough justification to replace it as long as it's working. If the preamp quits or if I ever purchase a used Carvin with the 2 band preamp, I would definitely consider an aftermarket preamp.

And while the 1977 LB70 featured this month was a production bass, it was still unique. Known for its direct-to-customer marketing of made-to-order instruments, the company originally made pickups and lap steels, then delved into Spanish-style electric guitars in the mid ’50s. One electronic option was dual-coil to single-coil switching. The input jack was also on the top of the pickguard. They also used three mini-toggles consisting of two coil-splitters (one of each pickup) and a phase switch. Because of their plethora of knobs and switches, the SB and SC have individual Volume controls, and a master Tone. Curiously, this incongruity is not mentioned in the catalog.The presence of two input jacks tags the LB70SB as a stereo instrument, but the wiring of the inputs was similar to Rickenbacker’s “Ric-O-Sound” configuration; plugging into one jack with a regular cord allows both pickups to be utilized in mono.Soon afterward, the company turned to set-neck models, followed in the ’80s by neck-through designs. It’s still a popular model today, and has been supplemented with five-string and six-string versions.” All copyrights are by the author and Vintage Guitar magazine.
