Any Carvin fans in here?

Just wondering if there are any Carvin fans in here? I think they make some of the best quality guitars and especially necks around. To this day my Bolt Plus guitar has the best playing/feeling neck i`ve ever seen. Any love for Carvin?

Re: Any Carvin fans in here?

I switched almost exclusively from ibanez to carvin lately.

Picked up a Bolt in a local music store, while waiting for my custom Bolt to be completed, and I have someone using a Carvin NT 7 string blank to build me a custom guitar.. They are pretty amazing, just wish I could afford more.

Yep. I've been configuring a DC127C for quite a while now. I keep changing things around. lol But I've pretty much got it figured out. I can't wait to get my hands on it.

I love the DC127. It's perfect in every way for me. I don't think I've seen any other guitar out there with the same package, when it comes to the specs.

And then of course the pricing is amazing, too. You get so much for relatively so little.

I think there are a lot of Carvin lovers on every board these days My 727 is fantastic.

Carvins are pretty decent guitars. My buddy has one and he really likes it. I'm not a fan of the necks though.

I am a fan of the company. I'd be a fan of the guitars and probably sell my Ibanez guitars if I could get them in my country.

If you ever saw a Carvin in person you probably would sell your Ibanez! *lol*

I would love to assemble one of their bolt kits! That seems like a fun and rewarding challenge.

Re: Any Carvin fans in here?

My next guitar (when that ever comes around, as I still love my RGT320Q) will most definitely be a Carvin. I have my eyes on a DC127. Looking at the gallery is like guitar porn. One of the guitar teachers I had when I went to college used a Holdsworth HF2 Fatboy with a natural finish.
