It came!
I was getting ready to order a custom Carvin myself and was just waiting 2 weeks to build up the funds a bit more when this popped up! It's basically exactly the same as I was getting. The only differences are I was going to get a bridseye maple board with abalone inlays and black hardware. Other than that it's basically the exact same! I was so happy when I saw the thread on here, especially since it came with the BKP Miracleman in the bridge! It worked out really well for me and this guitar is like new.

Specs:
Walnut Body
5 pc Maple/walnut Neck.
Walnut Headstock overlay
Ebony Fretboard
Clear Gloss on Body and neck
Dot Inlays
Jumbo Stainless Steel Frets
Sperzel Tuners
Chrome Hardware
Straplocks

I absolutely love it so far. Definitely a top of the line instrument for sure. Really really impressed with it. I have an aftermath and a coldsweat to try out in it as well, stoked to see how they all sound in the walnut rather than basswood.

Due to my lack of a decent camera (should be borrowing a nice one tomorrow), I "instagramed" this picture.



Clips coming soooooooooooon!

I paid about $850 after shipping and stuff. I saved around $500 probably.

Thanks for the kind words guys. The neck shape is taking me some getting used to since all my guitars are U shaped, but other than that, this guitar is absolutely killer.



You see, in USA Carvin is good value for money. Over here, that would be a 2000€ Carvin. I'd rather buy a custom Mayones for that money

Congrats on the very sexy Carvin though!

im in the US, I have a carvin CT4 I absolutely love. I dont think you made a bad choice at all, however if your not in the US there are better priced/equal quality options probably, as others have mentioned. enjoy the carvin.

the only thing im not totally sure of is their pickups, but the pickups certainly arent bad, just different.
