Carvin CT4M

Sorry for the bad photos.

Plays and sounds absolutely amazing, puts my Jackson DK-2 (with real Duncans) to shame. The tung-oil neck is the best I've ever felt (it's very similar to that of the gunstock oil on Musicman guitars.) The stainless steel frets are so very smooth and slick.

Any questions or comments?

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

I'd send it back, Carvin built it the wrong way round

Nice. I've got CS3 on order that should be done later this month.

SS Frets make that much of a difference, do they? Good to know the $40 I paid for them will not be wasted.

also, needz moar black back and sides. But happy NGD regardless. Seeing satisfied customers certainly helps ease my apprehension about waiting for mine.

I wanted to make a lefty joke but I've beaten to the punch.

It's beautiful, I'm jealous and hate you a little bit.

tl;dr How does one safely remove the smell of a corpse from a banjo?

Would you run down past the fence?

Tell us, is the black box lying?

He has. I thought about bugging him there as soon as I saw both threads, but IIRC UG has a "don't link to other message boards" thing.

Welcome to the Carvin club. A real beauty there.

Both my Carvins have SS MJ frets and 10" radius ebonys. Wouldn't have any other way.

Sorry, gotta show 'em off.
