I went to the Carvin factory in San Diego the other day, and I played the HF2. This thing was outstanding. The action was the best I have ever touched on any guitar. 20" radius will do that I guess. Haha. The cleans were on another level. I could get a great Metheny tone, and of course Allan's tone. Carvin is amazing, and going to Cali and the Carvin factory was something I always wanted to do before I died. Now I want to buy one. Ibanez is still near and dear to my heart. Anyone else love Carvin?
