Carvin Releases new Jason Becker Sig!

Yes, it's finally here. Finally a new Jason Becker signature guitar, made to Jason's specs from his old blue Carvin from back in the 80's. Linky
Just a little heads up for all the Becker fans out there. I know I'm getting one.

These days guitars are not made like they should these days.
I hope these days they catch up to old days these days.

In all seriousness I want that guitar. Pretty low list $ too.

That seems pretty rockin' on paper. Definitely more friendly than the $2,500 needed for a Soloist.

But Jasons had a Jackson headstock, 1/2 rolled bevels, a khaler trem and different body woods...

You can spec an identical ST300 for $200 cheaper...... I would buy this however if a big chunk goes towards helping Jason out.

Seems alright, but can't you already order a (non signature) guitar from Carvin to this spec? The pointy angled headstock is the only part I don't recall seeing on a common Carvin before.

guessing they are phase switches + a killswitch.

If i wanted to buy a guitar for a tribute to becker, i think the paradise signature model give a cut to his treatment. Sadly, it seems the company has closed down. The website has shut down and i dont know where to look

and pro tone do a signature distortion pedal.

i wouldnt even buy this as a becker sig in mind, it just looks like a sweet guitar. im a sucker for shredders with maple boards.

*EDIT* 4 knobs and 3 switches on a superstrat is such a kill

Please tell me you looked that up and didn't just have those stats in your head conviniently.

I don't see how it would be damaging. I got called C-dog for a number of years despite not being a dog. I turned out alright.

looks cool and i'd consider getting one. only thing though is i'm pretty sure you can spec a carvin just like that from one of there other models. it looks to me just like a dc127.
