Dude... every single aspect of that guitar just... it just works. I could even stare at the back of that guitar forever, and that's saying something. You've got a one in a million, I'd say.

I'm also able to deduct these as expenses for my taxes which this past year was rather helpful.
Plus these Carvin's are fairly cheap- compared to what I previously owned anyway.



There might be a possible issue with this one, I'm not sure yet. Usually when you go looking for a problem, you'll find one. Taking a picture of it would be impossible. There is about a 1" area where the top meets the body on the top side where if you run your fingernail across that area where they meet you'll just barely snag this microscopic groove that separates the two. Sometimes it takes a couple tries. It seems to only be in that area. While it's not an immediate concern, I'm worried about months/years down the road if this could become worse and become a real problem. I don't know the technical jargon to explain the issue, but if anyone else does and has an opinion on it, I'd love to hear it.

I wouldn't worry about it, it just sounds like the seam settled right there or something. I guarantee the top isn't going to just fall off of the guitar, lol.

Wow, this one is my favorite yet. And that top... it almost looks more like granite or some other rock formation rather than wood grain. Love it!!!

My Carvin has had that ever since I remember. It's been almost 2 years since I got it, and it has survived chilly winter temperatures, and 100% humidity 50 Celsius summers (even though it's mostly at home, but not 100% protected against humidity), and it hasn't changed a bit. I wouldn't worry about it.

Also, .... you for owning this guitar and not me . That top is fan-....ing-tastic. Congratulations!

I believe it is once you change the top wood. I wanted mine black on the top and sides w/ clear satin finish on the back and neck. They told me I could do it if I went with a top - but I didn't want to shell out $400 more for just that

You don't have to spend $400 on the top if you just want to paint over it. A plain maple top is just $80. Don't get burled maple and cover it with paint.

Damnit! Oh well, it will be here Monday. Live and learn. And I guess the plus side is since I didn't option 50 it, I can send it back

No, just a play on words; ref: "pearl of my eye".

Freakishly awsome from every angle.
Top almost looks like marble.

Great to know what a fine job Carvin does in making sure their customers are pleased.

Haha I knew someone was going to reference "Curl of the Burl" in this thread based on the "burl of my eye" statement. I think Mastodon approves of this nice burled Carvin DC800!!!
