Carvin finishings are awesome,wake up ibanez!
2 things I can't stand in that guitar.
No floyd rose and too many buttons.

Thanks guys!
Yeah to be honest I'm pretty much done with Ibanez. Carvins are reasonable, awesome looking and playing, and are extremely customizable. I love how all the Dc's are neck-through.

Sorry for the late response. Yes you can, through pushing and pulling the volume pot. Pushing down snaps into active mode(I use it rarely but is very useful is some situations) and pulling makes it passive
