Well I guess you could call this somewhat of a game. Just make your dream carvin over at carvin.com and post it here. It was quite fun for me. After seeing the price, I might get one myself. This isn't my dream guitar, but its somewhat of a dream Strat type for me. I think it would turn out quite nice.

There ain't no moral to this story at all. Anything I tell you very well could be a lie.

I'm debating whether or not to save up for a custom carvin, a PGM301, or a new amp.


Making a custom guitar is just so confusing! I'm not sure whether I want this or that.

He has a nicer amp.

He could still try for a different one. If he thinks its hard to get a custom he should take his time.

I recommend all of you get the tung oil neck. It would be horribly stupid not to.

^Thanks for the tip. Its nice to see some people having fun with this thread. I've always wanted a custom guitar. There is at least one small flaw in all guitars I find. The custom can give you the chance to correct it.

I don't see how, I don't like the feel of Tung-oiled necks, I'd rather have my neck finished in some sort of lacquer.

IMO, the tung oil finsh feels great. Doesn't ever have any gunk build up like a Gibson, soo smooth.
