Carvin’s new Vanquish Series electric basses represent a radical departure from traditional bass guitars, and are the next step in the evolution of the instrument. The 4-string V49K, 5-string V59K and 6-string V69K Vanquish basses are loaded with exciting new features, including a beveled body designed for comfort as well as great looks and a 5-bolt neck joint for improved neck/body contact resulting in better sustain and punch. Additionally, the V69K is the Custom Shop’s first-ever bolt-neck 6- string bass.
Other features, including a Hipshot™ A-style bridge and 24-fret neck add to the superior range, tone and playability of the Vanquish Series. Electronics consist of a pair a radiused-top humbuckers with 18V active/passive module; controls include master volume, pickup blend, push/pull active and passive tone control, stacked concentric bass and treble frequency cut or boost. Optional single-coil radiused-top pickups are available for more jazzy styles of music.
Like all USA-made Carvin Custom Shop instruments, you can order your new Vanquish bass by choosing from a huge assortment of options, including body, top, neck and fingerboard woods; finishes, inlays, fretwire, hardware and more. You can design your Vanquish bass exactly the way you want it to suit your own playing style and personal tastes.
In addition, the Custom Shop has added some new finish options. Deep Nightburst (shown on the V69K above) is Carvin's Deep Aquaburst with the addition of purple burst edges. Translucent Moss Green is similar to the Deep Moss Green that's been available on flamed and quilt top woods, but can but used on plain woods like alder and swamp ash.
