Is one sexy mofo!

My Carvin was finally built and shipped, i got it yesterday and it is damn beautiful. I was originally going to change the pickups in it, but i love the way these sound so i don't think I will change 'em.


**Only mods i'm making = Gold pickup rings + putting my custom name plate truss rod cover on**

Anyway here's the goods!

i've never known much about Carvins, but what are all those switches for?

EDIT:

I'm guessing Piezo, Coil-Splitters, Sustainer or Roland GK sorta things?

Is there any black people on UG?
I don't think a lot of black people play guitar anymore.

Set me back about 1250 w/ a hardcase. They had options 50% off and $100 off the guitar deals, i believe since 2006 was they're 60th anniversary, not sure if they still have those deals.

And yeah the top two switches are coil splitters and the bottom switch is a phase

That's a DC400, right? I'm looking to get one eventually; I'm getting a job soon. It's a sexy beast. I'm getting a lefty with a Floyd Rose, though.

Yep it's a 400! Nice to see a fellow carvinite. Yeah i decided that i don't use the trem enough to warrent getting a floyd, so i dind't want to have to deal with the annoyingness of changing strings w/ one heh.

i've been looking at carvins lately... Are they worth the money? They look really nice. O... and how come there pickups have so many holes or poles in them?
...
#20
I have one of those guitars.


Unfortunately it's the one at the far left, the shitty Ibanex GRX40. It's pretty good for a beginner guitar when you compare it to Squier.

Some.

Scroll down a little bit to the white banner-bar thing that says "Virtual Customshop Color Selector" and click.

Here this is better, bigger pics :p


Thanks

Dam Ill definitely get one of these guitars.

I like those pictures or image things on the frets. Can you mod a regular electric guitar to have frets like those? If so how much will it cost and where?

Is that a gibson or Epi explorer, judging on your money status I take it its a Gibson? Its bootyful!
#32
Yeah (sig says so hehe)

It's a gibson explorer gothic. I just tried some red DR strings on there, not only do i think they look awesome but i really liked the sound compared to the D'Addario's i used to use. I use the Gothic for C-Standard tuning mostly.

NICE! I like your guitar room with the wall hanger and posters. Looks like something I'd want to do when I have more than 1 guitar haha. You said you wanted to get gold pickups. If you find out how to get gold bezels let me know because I want a CT6M with gold hardware and I have no idea where to get matching gold pickup bezels. Also, it sounds like you are a good player from that clip. Anyways, enjoy that beautiful beast.
