    Hey guys, I already got this a couple of weeks ago but I was waiting for a friend to come to my house and take some pics of the guitar. He has been busy so I haven't got my pics, but I'll post the seller's pics here and I'll add the others later :) :yesway:

    Back to the guitar.. what can I say.. It's brilliant, I just love it. It's my first 7 string guitar and I'm already really familiarized with it. I got it used from Lord Bile (great guy to deal with :yesway:). It's really an awesome guitar, very beautiful too.

    So, the pics! :D

    Sweet man! How much that cost you all together with shipping and import taxes?

    Score! The chrome hardware looks great with that finish.
    How are you liking the stock pickups?

    Thanks, dude! I sure feel like a winner ahah :D :yesway:

    Obrigado, Fred! :)

    I got it used from Lord Bile. 800€ with shipping :)

    Yeah, dude. Honestly, I'm a fan of black hardware, but with this finish, the chrome looks really awesome.
    I'm still waiting for a "real" amp to test the pickups in this beauty. Mine's a Roland Cube 15w :lol::lol: I'll probably buy a Bugera 333XL, I'll turn 17 on the 19th February :evil:

    Very beautiful Carvin! I love the finish, and I agree that the chrome looks very beautiful on it! Really classy, indeed.

    I gotta ask though, what's the third mini-switch for? The one underneath the pickup selector? I know the other two are coil splitters. Did this one come with a phase switch too?

    Thanks, dude! The neck is really awesome, I thought the adaptation would be hard (Ibby 6 string to Carvin 7 string) but it was not! It's just brilliant, I love the neck! :)

    Thanks, dude! It is indeed a Phase switch :) I don't use it, though

    Oh my :) That is beautiful. I've always liked carvins. Too bad they're so expensive in europe.

    Though, there is walnut 727 for sale here in Finland at a reasonable price. It's causing me some serious gas!
