The Carvin CT6? Yeah, they are really nice. Like I said, if you get the tung oiled neck it is right there with a rosewood neck PRS, and waaay less cash. With the standard finish neck I like the PRS better, but they're still close. The pickups are close too, maybe I'm just more familiar with the PRS pickups than the Carvin pickups. But the Carvin is a solid guitar, no question, and definitely worth consideration. Plus, as you already know, you get your choice of 3 fretboard woods, stainless frets, and all the other Carvin options.

After reading all the good reviews about the Carvin CT-6, I decided to go to there site and do a mock custom build. I cant believe that after I was all said and done with all the upgrades it still only came out to about 2k. The finishes are just beautiful!!!! Now if I can get my hands on one to try it, if I like it I might just have to get one.

Any idea as to what the lead time is on custom models???

My 727 took about 3 months, but I think they usually take about 10 weeks I believe. The 727 was absolutly worth the wait

Re: Gibson LP Vs PRS standard satin

Mine took 3 month to build, they now have a ton more options since they have the new website. Mine was build with a maple fretboard, no inlays, stainless steel frets, tung oiled neck, wilkinson trem, gold hardware and with case i think i paid 18something.

I believe if there would be a PRS with these options it would easily be in the 3.5k range. I will change the pickups one day to a set of Dragons just to see how that sounds.

I will order myself another one shortly, just a blonde with an ebony board. Finish is as good as on my PRS, overall built quality is very nice.
