By the end of the summer I plan to have about $1500 US to spend on a new guitar and I was really hoping to order a custom Carvin. The only problem is i'm stuck on all the options, and even between all the models.

So I thought I'd see what UG would build if they were going to get a Carvin, just to see some ideas.
( http://www.carvinguitars.com/customshopelectricguitars.php ) Just click on the model then on the right there's a link to the builder.


So UG, what would you get and why?

link fail. anyway if you really don't know what you want then i don't think you should get one. i mean custom guitars are generally not the easier guitars to sell considering they are made to your own specs that you want so possibly hold off buying a custom guitar until you are fully clear on what you want.

Well this is what I was thinking.
St300
- Classic white
- Black hardware
- Tune-o-matic bridge
- 5 piece maple-walnut neck
- Diamond inlays
- M22SD bridge pickup
- Active passive electronics

I know I want something with good upper fret acces, and preferably in the superstrat shape but I just wanted to see some other ideas that UG had.

Oh and the link works fine for me.

Well the guitar comes stock with an alder body and maple neck-through neck, which is what I want (Well either that or swamp ash.) The 5 piece neck is for strength and to prevent warping. The active/passive electronics include two coil splitting switches and phase switch for versatility, the m22sd bridge p-up is more metal oriented while the stock neck pickup is more classic and warm sounding and I have a tune-o-matic on my guitar already and I know I like it. The rest it sort of just looks.

I have been looking at other guitars too, I like the feel of Jacksons (Loved the Sl3) and Shecters, some fenders felt nice but I don't like the neck heel.

So what would you recommend for a versatile guitar around 1500$, preferably neck through (Or good upper fret access)and no floyd rose?

The guitars I've tried so far and liked are:
Jackson Sl3
Shecter Blackjack ATX
Fender deluxe players Strat (Didn't like the bolt-on though)

This bleeeeeds carvin.


I was thinking something like that too, but only for a 6 string.

One question, does the maple fretboard slow down playing? I heard that somewhere, and I've played guitars where it felt slower, but I've also played some good maple fretboards.
