I'm not a frequent poster over here, but I'm a long-time lurker. I just got a new Carvin C66 on Thursday and thought I'd share the pics. The bad news is that I broke my left ring finger and will need surgery for it to heal completely, so I won't be able to play it for at least 6-8 weeks!
Here are the specs:
Alder Body, Flame Maple Top, Tobacco Sunburst Finish
Maple Neck, Birdseye Maple Fingerboard
Stainless Steel Medium Jumbo Frets
DiMarzio Cruiser, stock Carvin AP11, DiMarzio Steve's Special (DiMarzios not installed by factory)
Abalone Dots, Logo
Reverse "Holdsworth" Headstock
Pearloid Sperzel Tuner Buttons (added by me)
Carvin doesn't normally do the "triangle" single coil routes or squared off fretboards on their bolt-on models, but for an extra charge they were willing to do both. I'll be swapping out that last stock pickup for a DiMarzio Area '61 after my finger heals because it still gets a lot of hum. It's a shame though, because it's a really great-sounding pickup.
My not-so-great camera makes the finish look a lot more brown than it does in person The finish is actually a really rich, bright yellow in the center, and it's brownish where the black meets the yellow.
It plays and sounds amazing. The trem springs are a little stiff and it'll be a little adjustment to the medium-jumbo frets, but all in all it's a really special guitar.
Onto the pics:
