I have always wanted one, and they're actually pretty cheap for what type of guitars they are, i mean u can get a custom one for about $1000, and les pauls are $2000, but i was wondering about how good they actually are. Are there only certain guitar that are good. I really want one, and i plan on getting one in the future.

I've played a couple Carvin guitars. I really liked them. Good quality guitars and yeah, they're a great price.

Not only that, but they're usually beautiful as far as looks go.

I played one in a Line 6 and it even sounded great, so you should be good there.

Carvins sell direct to buyer
so yes
the quality of that 1000 dollar carvin is equal, if not better than the gibson 2000 dollar.
I don't even shred

They're completely worth it, fantastic guitars all around. My next electric guitar will be a Carvin 7 string.

Carvins are custom made, go online and make it just the way you want it.

Also, I hope to have one by the end of the year, they are delicious.

I play a Carvin CT3C(didn't want the quilt) and it's awesome.
However I do sometimes wish that it had just a bit lower action.
But it's a great looking, and great sounding guitar. I have never regretted buying it!

The good ones are great.
The bad ones are crap.

If you get one, fork out the extra cash for a high-end one. It's worth it.
