This is a little long but I tried to answer everyone I haven't gotten to yet. If you posted something chances are I have a response in this long reply. Awesome man! Like I said, I've been lurking on here for a while so I definitely recognize some of our Carvin fans here on the board! Glad you like your DC727, they're killer guitars! What info did you need? The V220 that Marty had was typical for all the V220s they had back in the day that we don't offer standard on our newer reissues. Some of the options being coil splitters with 3 knobs for vol/tone. The neck heels are a little different from back then too. If you come across a red V220 from the late 80's with black hardware, Kahler tremolo, straight (modern) logo as opposed to the cursive then you will have a guitar that is exactly like the one that Marty used back in the days. His was a neck through guitar because he got his after 1988. All previous guitars were set neck construction. Instead of over-analyzing you can send me a PM haha. I can try and answer as many questions that I can, of course keep in mind I can't disclose a certain amount of knowledge so it might make you go Yeah, it's unfortunate but it's something that is a little tricky for not just us but all US based companies. There are a lot of factors, many include newer international trade laws, taxes in both countries, changes to shipping fees, etc. etc. that make exporting a product from the US not as simple (inexpensive) as it used to be. You and me both my friend Does this help? lolol we typically take about 5-6 weeks average for our rush builds. Sure we can build one sooner (if we reaaaaaally needed to) but we're not ones to skimp on quality and want to make sure everything gets taken care of to our standards and letting the woods do their natural thang is very important for a happy guitar. Rush builds are possible, just have to speak with a sales person to get it set up. Now, holding the place up on the other hand for over a month you'd better bring yourself and all of us some decent grub, we get real cranky when we don't eat For something like that I would post it on Jeff Kiesel's official facebook page. He's the one designing all of the newer guitars so if you have an example or request at least he'll see it and it'll get the gears turning. What did you have in mind? Even more generic than this? This is our Bolt Plus, which is a bolt on model that's pretty "super strat-y." The C66 model is another option as well. We have all the newly released models available in our SD showroom for demo, just be sure to take the suicide vest off before you play them, we don't want to get any of them scratched up now As for the new model, all will be revealed in time. You have a good name! Glad you like your DC727, what options did you go with? Also, if you need help putting together your next build let me know!
