I'm sure most country shld has this service.

Just a suggestion.
Ohhh, that sounds interesting. I might have to check that out. Can you give a bit more details on that service or anybody else .

Re: Non-locking trems/guitars

The problem with the Korean BM's is that they don't exist a lefties (go figure that one), so the C90P is the only option and there the price of 3300 € is firm from Thomann (german distributor). Carvin seems like the only other choice and their prices are good to.

André

PS. Someone here got a Carvin a few weeks back, how long did it take to build (6 weeks like they say on the webpage).

Re: Non-locking trems/guitars

I haven't owned a Carvin, but I've had many BM's : USA and Korean. Blindfolded, you cannot tell which is which while playing. Honest. I HATE the jack location on them though....way up high on the back. SUCKS. Keep in mind the neck-throughs are a bit darker sounding than bolt-ons.

Oh, and the Korean models all have a circular inked stamp on the back of the neck at the body stating so. I think the last one I paid $800. (US currency)

Re: Non-locking trems/guitars

Got the final price from Thomann a few days 3300 € and no chance for discount or anything . So Carvin seem like the right choice. I don't want to order it from the distributor (prices end up the same as with BM). Can someone here in the US/Canada help me out with (I will of course compentsate for their trouble) ordering a custom lefty Carvin from the webpage.

Regards

André

Re: Non-locking trems/guitars

I just contacted the BM distributor here in Germany and they sent my quote to BM directly. Got an e-mail from them this morning, sent them the specs right away. So far the distributor has quoted me and price 3500 € and it would take 4 to 5 months to build. The high price has turned me a bit down. I hope I can knock the price a bit down (2500 € or less ).

Re: Non-locking trems/guitars

If you wanted a Carvin custom shop guitar you could likely find someone in the States to have it shipped to, who could forward it for you. Especially if it saved you a lot of cash. One of your fellow Jemsiters would step up.

Re: Non-locking trems/guitars

I just e-mailed them and got an answer 15 minutes later (thumbs up). I would have to order it from the distributor here in Germany. So I went over to their webpage and saw their prices. Result would be I would end up paying twice the price for the guitar from the distributor. No Thank You .

Re: Non-locking trems/guitars

I just looked on carvin's webpage they have this nice Contour 66 I think it was called with alot of good option (active electronics etc.). My question is now is their custom shop to all in the world or can only us/canada residents order those?

Anybody ever buy one of these? Which one of their pickups is good/bad and so on.

André

Re: Non-locking trems/guitars

The i2000 series is made in Korea I think, while the i1000 series is made in China (?).

Basically models like i1, i2, i8, i9 are Korea, i11, i21, i81 would then be China, and models called C MC, DC etc would be USA made, I think (but you can tell it by price anyway)

Maybe I just copy & paste this and send it to BM .

Re: Non-locking trems/guitars

I've heard that before about their headstock, and I can't understand it. But everyone has a different set of priorities I guess. Personally I'd take a G&L if it had a headstock shaped like a duck! I don't really like the BM headstock myself.

As for deciphering the country of origin, that's tough to say. You'd have to either ask someone in the know, or e-mail Brian Moore directly. That'd be a fun e-mail to write
