The DC727's been around for a long time, so I probably can't offer much in the way of new information. However, take note: - Carvin's willingness to do something not off the set menu? A+. Execution: A+ - fit and finish is a 4.999 out of 5 only due to a few small things that my perfectionism can't let go, but there's not worth mentioning. It's an absolutely beautiful instrument, and for the price, I don't think you can beat it.
