I've never played a lemon Carvin; I've played quite a few MIA lemons.

It's custom made for you! And it's cheaper!

No contest, in my opinion.

^ and if they did, they wouldn't have them for long, and with good reason. Carvin = awesomeness.

Carvin, hands down. I know what you mean about not being able to find a carvin in a store to actually play, but I've never met a carvin owner who didn't like the carvin he owned. Plus there's the whole custom thing, so you get the exact guitar you want.

Go for the carvin.

How are the Carvin Pickups? good for classic rock/metal?

EDIT: so I don't hijack this thread, Carvin all the way, even if you dont play them first, the finish is beautiful, they play great, and custom made too.

The M22SD is pretty suited for higher gain situations.

The last time he posted this thread, everyone said fender for sure, by like a 90% majority.

That goes to show that chance is always a factor. You need to play them. You could play a crappy squier and a several thousand dollar les paul and like the feel of the fender's body or neck better.

Its all your choice.

Now make up your mind man, UG can only help you so much.

Hah, I almost want to call this true but Fenders have their own feel to them that I love.

I just love carvin's more!

I'm interested...which neck size should he go for. What would be a neck closest to a Fender? The 14" radius?

Older fenders have a rounder radius; I've seen newer ones with 12 I believe.

Well I have both a Carvin (not a bolt, a DC135 I got used for $200) and a MIM Fender. The Carvin has had a lot of stuff done to it- custom wiring, all Seymour Duncan pups. It's black with a 24 fret maple neck.

And I'm going to go against everybody else in this thread and say that I like the sound and feel of my Fender more than the sound and feel of the Carvin.

Well yeah you didn't get it customized for you

Living close to the Carvin factory, i have had the luxury of playing both. After playing a Carvin i knew what the "perfect instrument" sounded and felt like. They play amazingly and look outstanding. I have to say id prefer Carvin over fender, but both produce a different sound. So its really up to what you are looking for.
#26
^^I realize that. But if I plug in my Carvin on the neck single and compare it to the neck single of my Fender, I find the tone of the Fender far superior.
#27
Go with what ya like man......thats all i can say. Play both till your fingers bleed. After awhile one might feel more "normal" than the other.
