Thumbs up NGD: DC-EightHundee wettin' muh Undies!

PHOTOS!









Specs are probably pretty obvious from the photos; went for the stainless steel jumbo frets and they were the correct choice as it seems from what little time I've had to play it thus far. Body has a clear matte finish and neck is tung oiled. Truth be known, I've never really played a 7-string before, and have only held (never played) an 8-string before owning this. You could say it was quite a gamble.

Overall impressions thus far: Best instrument I've ever owned/played hands down. Feels great and plays great and I've not even set it up to my liking yet. I need to order a custom string set so I can run Drop E without flop city from the stock F# string. Once I get a new set on I'll sit down and get everything set up to my liking.

TO ANYBODY that mainly plays 6's and is thinking about a DC800; it took me a grand total of 20 minutes playing this before I felt comfortable with the extra strings and neck wideness. If you have the cash and are on the fence, I say DO IT!

Nice looking guitar! Carvin makes great stuff. Is that the tung oil finish? Isn't that the smoothest thing ever?

Your name doesnt happen to be Thomas Richardson, does it?

Nice guitar man. I like the tight flame pattern on the body.

I assume that's a mahogany body. How's it sound on the low strings? How's the clarity? I went with all mahogany body, hog neck with maple stripes, and maple top/board. Just need a little reassurance that it won't be too muddy.

Nice! Loving the truss rod cover. Haha. and you actually got inlays!! I can't stand blank fretboards. I guess they look cool but when I jam with the other guitarist in my band, and he asks "Am I playing it right?" I can never tell because there's no darn inlays. -_- Congrats, though! Haha

Yes, mahogany body and maple/koa stripe neck, and of course the maple top. As of right now, with the stock/standard tuning the clarity is great. I'm still dialing in a nice tone my X3 bean, but even without much in the line of EQ'in my patches, you can hear each string if you play a chord using all the strings. Since I want to tune it Drop E, I need to get a thicker low string since the stock one doesn't handle it too well, which was expected. So yeah, don't worry about yours; my opinion at least.

No bolt on that I know of. The construction and body/neck layout seems to be just one option.

Thanks! I love the little dots; call me old-fashioned.

It's like a $10 option. I figured "why not?" since my last name barely fit the 10-letter maximum per line.

I'll be glad to answer any more questions. In the mean time, I'll try and get something up on youtube soon and add that to the original post. Stay classy.
