I got a Carvin DC 727, all mahogany neck thru, string thru and fixed bridge, rounded body edges + Active passive system.
Beautifull guitar ( mine is natural finish )
You can set the action really low and just fly on it
You can't change the pickups
The Active passive system adds unwanted treblyness
I also have an Ibanez RG 270 and had Dimarzio Evo's in it.
The Carvin feels stiff and sterile compared to the Ibanez, and the pickups sound nothing like a Dimarzio, one increddible thing i just can't get is this:
You can have amazing ballsy clean sounds with it, i mean a dream for Jazz players, but with distortion it's thin like a tin can, and trebly, and shrieky.
Anyway hopefully in a few days i'm gonna go over to a friend who has an RG7620 and try that one and let him try the Carvin and get a 2nd opinion, maybe i'm just freaky about it
