Incoming NGD - Carvin Ultra V!

Couldn't resist this...seems like my perfect V. Might get rid of my Schecter if i like it as much as i think i will. 24 frets, 25" scale, birdseye maple fretboard, alder w/ maple neck-thru. Locking sperzels, and C22 humbuckers. String thru body, all gold hardware. I usually dislike gold hardware but i think it looks really classy up against the white, Randy Rhoads style. Spec'd it out on Carvin's site and it came to about $1150, I scored this baby in mint condition with the original hardshell case for $450. Hopefully she's worth it.

All I have right now is this crappy tiny stock photo, more to come in a day or two once it's here!

I can't believe it wouldn't be worth well more than what you paid; Carvin makes great guitars.

Yeah jim, I expect superb quality. My CT6C is the finest "company" guitar I've ever played, so I definitely have high expectations of this Ultra V.

If they made a flying V that was symmetrical I would be all over it.

Re: Incoming NGD - Carvin Ultra V!

I actually prefer the asymmetrical ones, for comfort. Symmetrical ones always feel weird to me sitting down, and I play sitting down relatively frequently.

I got one of these in a dark dark trans purple a few weeks back. Mine came with the best case Carvin sells and all the accessories and paperwork. Mine included the build sheet as well and the total paid with the case was closer to $1600. I paid $650 or so. I think your gonna love it!!

Thanks dude! She's sitting in my living room right now. Damn being employed! :P. Mine also came with the insane $180 dollar Carvin case (how they charge those kinda prices for cases i dont know, its kind of insane).

This is my 2nd biggest Carvin deal ever. The first will be untouchable for the ages...my CT6C. I priced it out on Carvin's site, it came to $2100. I paid $400 with the super nice tweed hardshell and the guitar was literally unplayed. Couldn't even find a pick scratch. Even at full price though, Carvins are top rate bang for your buck.

Now roll on 5pm, roll on!
