Re: Carvin DC127 for G&L S-500?
Well it certainly stands out for the price. I played it next to a $2200 Jackson and an Ibanez RG420 and I thought the neck was more comfortable and it seemed better made. Additionally the neck radius as you go up the neck on the Jackson was a bit wack where it was perfect on the Carvin. The RG420 definitely screamed sustain (maple/mahogany) where the Carvin was second there (alder) but again I think the neck was better.
