NGD! Awesome Quilt Content! (56k Joke)

Decided to make the jump back to a 7 after hanging with the 6 for a while (which I loved dearly). Scored a great deal with MastrXploder on this 2006 Carvin DC727. I know it's been passed through a few sets of hands here, but it's still an awesome axe. On to the pictures! Apologies for cellphone-quality pics:











So far, I'm loving this thing. This is my first neck-thru I've ever owned and I'm digging it a ton. The neck profile feels great, although I'll probably take some steel wool to the clear coat to make it feel more satin. Not a big fan of painted necks. Also, I will be changing these pickups out. Not a big fan of Dimarzio Blazes. I'm thinking either the CL/LF combo, or making the jump to some covered BKPs of some sort. He was also nice enough to throw in a brand new Tremol-no, still in the box. I'll get around to installing that soon. Big thanks, once again, to MastrXploder! Great guy to work with. I'll have a clip up of this monster soon enough.

The current pickups are Dimarzio Blaze 7s, but I'm not a big fan of them. They'll be getting changed soon.

And my grass is very plush and comforting, thank you.

Sweet axe, I agree, Blaze's are not for everyone's tastes.

BTW, anyone else seen that Randy has been in here?

So far it's been pretty stable. I'm used to Ibanez trems, so I'm not familiar with LFRs. Not bad so far, though. I'm not a big trem junkie anyways.

Looks awesome - but without a locking nut you can't really get your Whoop Whoop on.

The tuners are locking, so I can do it subtly. Plus I don't really abuse my trem.

But I thought that *isn't* what locking tuners do...?

I made a similar comment in a different thread and ppl told me that this isn't exactly what they're for. Can someone please clarify this once and for all?

Dunno. They work for me, so that's what I'm going with.

As for the color, I believe it's called Deep Antique Brown.
