About a week ago, i discovered carvin guitars and customized and an Ultra V. But at the same time, i had also been looking at an B.C. Rich NT jr. V deluxe (the one with a rev. headstock).

Do it Carvin is awesome

Edit: Carvin V's look sick with the Reverse pointy headstock.

I'd go with the Carvin. Though maybe you could try to cut out non-essential elements to say a bit of money.

Like the Maple Neck w/ 2 Koa Stripes.

^even so the cheapest i could get it was $1413, i heard neck stripes were necessary to keep the guitar neck from warping since the carvin v is neck thru, so the cheapest neck with stripes is only 20$ less than koa, so i decided that i might as well put something exotic on it

does anyone know how well the b.c. rich plays?

^I've played B.C. Rich guitars around that price range, and they play fairly well. Not what you'd expect for the price though.
