In the 60's and 70's, Carvin basses were bolt-neck models, with Hofner-made components and Carvin electronics, with no real selection of finishes, woods or other options.  As time went on, Carvin's basses progressed and expanded to Carvin-made set neck models with a few finish and other options, to the current lineup of 20 different basses with a huge assortment of finishes, woods, electronics and other options.
