My new Carvin DC600

I haven't posted here in a while but I wanted to share this. I see that there are tons of Carvin threads on here, so I might as well. I received this a few weeks ago. It's a DC600 with Floyd Rose, Deep Aquaburst over Quilted Maple, Stainless Jumbo frets, Birdseye Maple fingerboard, coil splitting.








I plays as great as it looks, and don't let anyone tell you that the Carvin stock pickups don't rock. These are the stock C22B (bridge) and C22J (neck). They sound better to me than the Duncan JB's in my USA Jacksons.

Re: My new Carvin DC600

Happy NGD!

I had a Carvin NGD last year (JB200). I LOVE Carvins and I'm planning my next build (a V220).

How do you like it?

"Like" doesn't get in the ballpark.

Sweet

I think anyone who touches a Carvin instantly falls in love with em. I know I did when I touched a used JB200 once

Wow... that guitar is absolutely STUNNING! Here I've been drooling over the chlorine Jackson PC-1... and yours looks 10x better. Congrats on an awesome guitar. Glad to hear you like the pickups too. Some people rave about them, others say they are no good?? I've been wanting to try some for a while now.

Once you play a carvin, you will never look back. I know, I have one

A lot less than I did for mine, because I had to go through one of Carvin's international dealers and the price shot up an extra 400 bucks or so. Carvins are still better than the rip off artists ESP, but they are now closer in cost to a Jem 7FP2 than a good J custom

I did an A-B comparison between this guitar and a couple of my Jackson USA Soloists, both with Duncan JB's. I honestly like the Carvin pickups better. They're about the same degree of "hot," but the Carvins have better clarity and articulation to my ears.

Granted, we're talking different guitars here (ebony vs. maple boards, etc...), but the pickups definitely account for most of the sound difference.

Thanks for the update. I'll definitely have to try some Carvin C22's someday. I put a JB/Hot Stacks set from a USA Soloist in my project strat a couple months ago and really like them... so I'll probably like the Carvins. They are very reasonably priced too... $55-60 if you buy direct from them.

Re: My new Carvin DC600

Get an m22sd and m22v. High output that clean up nicely with lower volume
