Almost NGD: Carvin JB200CFDP4BST

So I ordered this baby in March and she's finally almost ready to ship out to me

I did a few changes to the standard JB200C Jason Becker Tribute model. I got Deep triple stained Purple flame with blackburst edges (but pulled back to prevent too much darkness on the edges), I also got stainless steel frets.

I stuck to the standard body(alder w/flame maple top) and fingerboard (flamed maple) but I got a 5 piece neck with Mahogany stripes. Ibanez's 5 piece are maple/walnut, but I thought because no one does it, let's do mahogany. The stripes would only be visible on the back of the guitar but hey, that's fine

She hasn't arrived yet but will be here next week. The pic below is directly off Carvin's facebook page, Guitars of the day 5/21/2014

The switches are for:

Coil tap for each pickup (one mini switch for each pup)
Phase switch

Also, it has a push-pull knob where the pups are switched to passive mode when the volume knob is pulled up. The bottom 2 knobs are bass/treble boost/cut when the pups are in active mode.

Oh and the cost is the same as if I bought a J custom here. I got far more versatility than any JC could have

That looks beautiful. I had a purple Suhr Standard that looked very similar. I would like to pick up one of those JB200's at some point.

But a suhr standard is at least 1k more

They bookmatched that flame maple top perfectly. Almost all the lines match up.

Oh, and if you buy a jb200, some of the money goes tohelp Jason Becker out.
