    A few for trade as they don't get much play. No rush on my end, and no specific thing in mind, except maybe a short scale fixed bridge player guitar - or the only thing I know I could add cash for would be some sort of Suhr with stainless steel frets.

    No amps or pedals or Ibanez or Agiles please.

    ----------

    Gear/Guitar for Sale/Trade: Carvin DC600/127 with upgrades
    Additional Accessories (hardshell case etc): Tweed Carvin G&G case
    Modifications: Seymour Duncan SH4/SH2 combo (90% sure as not the original owner)
    Condition: 9.99/10. Maybe a hairline scratch or two.
    Your Location (City,State or City,Country): California
    International OK?: OK if you pay shipping
    Contact Info (No Phone #s): PM me here
    References (eBay or other forum userid): quite a few good deals here + eBay references + carvin forums + TGP
    Price: trade value ~1200

    A glorious example of Carvin soloist, basically a mix of a DC127 and DC600, with traditional body shape and contours, direct mounted pickups and 3+3 headstock.

    And look at it…this seriously has one of the best ever to come out of Carvin/Kiesel.

    Features:
    *Honduras Mahogany body and neck
    *5A burl maple top, matching headstock overlay
    *Ebony fingerboard
    *Stainless Steel medium jumbo frets
    *Sperzel locking tuners
    *Wilkinson tremolo with a trem-lock, currently set for 'dive only'
    *Seymour Duncan pickups (not the original owner, but 80% sure they are SH2/SH4)
    *Abalone inlays and controls

    The guitar weighs a light 7'3 on my calibrated postal scale. Very comfy!

    A great example of Carvin 24-fret carved top.
    If it had a PRS on the headstock those would sell for twice the price…

    *Honduras Mahogany neck - finished in non-stick tung oil
    *Radiation green finish
    *Ebony fingerboard with no markers

    Bought on a whim…but I already have another CT and CS.

    This one was supposed to be my 'player' PRS, but I ended up lucky enough to get 3 Core PRSi this year so have no more use for it. To be honest though, it's not far behind them. Stays in tune insanely well and surprinsingly resonates and sustains better than one of my USA. Also one of the best looking SE's I've seen.

    I tried a few pickups on the guitar (PRS HFS/VB, DiMarzio, a few SD sets) and the SD SH6 was clearly the best match to the guitar. Unfortunately, my soldering iron gave up while I was finishing the wiring back for those :( . I don't have the patience to go out and buy a new iron just for this guitar, so everything is in place but whoever gets it will have to redo the wiring on it.

    Gear/Guitar for Sale/Trade: Jackson RRXT24 with upgrades
    Additional Accessories (hardshell case etc): None
    Your Location (City,State or City,Country): California
    International OK?: OK if you pay shipping
    Contact Info (No Phone #s): PM me
    References (eBay or other forum userid): quite a few good deals here + eBay references + carvin forums + TGP
    Price (include currency and if firm/obo): trade value ~550

    Long story short, this is the closest I've felt to a USA RR1 without the price tag; plus a couple of sweet things on top of that.

    Neck through construction, frets professionally dressed and aligned, this plays like a dream. 2 extra frets (24 frets) compared to most RRs.
    Upgraded pickups (Seymour Duncan Blackouts), and the awesome flush Dunlop straploks. This guitar DOES NOT have the typical balance problems that many RRs and Kellys have.

    The bigger "wing" is a bit scratched at the tip, but other than that, the condition is excellent, with just a bit of VERY superficial wear, extremely hard to spot.
    The neck if perfect (and amazing) - and all electronics and hardware are perfect too. Frets look almost new.

    I'm in no rush to see this one go as I got it only 6 weeks ago…but I feel I'd be happier with a fixed bridge on a short scale guitar.

    Gear/Guitar for Sale/Trade: ESP Edwards 'Maverick' E-MV130 QM LTD Limited edition of the E-MV125 FR
    Additional Accessories (hardshell case etc): New, premium ESP Gig Bag
    Modifications: None
    Condition: 9.5/10. Could pass as new except for the loose strap button (read below)
    Your Location (City,State or City,Country): California
    International OK?: OK if you pay shipping
    Contact Info (No Phone #s): PM me here
    References (eBay or other forum userid): quite a few good deals here + eBay references + carvin forums + TGP
    Price: trade value ~900

    Features:
    *Alder body
    *3-piece maple neck with oiled finish
    *27 Jumbo frets
    *Floyd Rose
    *Seymour Duncan pickups (I believe SH4 and little 59)
    *Ebony fretboard
    *Short scale 24.75"
    And this is a limited edition with quilted finish instead of the usual flame.

    The guitar is straight from Japan, with less than 10 hours playtime.
    Still has the japanese price on the back, and if you do the math that 136000 JPY is more than 1100 US$)..No nicks or issues.
    Only defect is that the upper horn straplok is loose and the screw looks stripped so doesn't tighten at the moment.

    And a bass :)

    Gear/Guitar for Sale/Trade: Carvn/Kiesel Vanquish 5 string
    Additional Accessories (hardshell case etc): Premium Carvin soft-shell case
    Condition: 9.7/10. Maybe a scratch or two, but I'm having trouble finding them. Great great condition.
    Your Location (City,State or City,Country): California
    International OK?: OK if you pay shipping
    Contact Info (No Phone #s): PM me here
    References (eBay or other forum userid): quite a few good deals here + eBay references + carvin forums + TGP
    Price: trade value ~900

    Pretty simple. This is the best bass I've owned, but I don't think 5-string is for me. I think I could be happy with just my fours.

    Swamp ash top, active, SUPER reliable and flexible + perfect condition.

    Having a hard time to resist this one (if it's the blue denim), but I'll probably have to say no.
