    So far loving this guitar. The wait felt so long but it's nothing compared to the people that wait for Suhr's and companies like that. the guitar is so easy to play. I'll have a better review soon but we need more time together ;]

    This is my first Carvin and i think my GAS has only begun. The craftsmanship is flawless. I can't find any imperfections and i am usually picky as hell on my guitars.

    It's great! the action is very low with no buzz. The frets are perfect. the stainless steel frets really are smooth and i will be spoiled now! The neck profile is very comfortable. It's very similar to my ibanez JS.

    I'm blown away.

    The only think i need is nut sauce. If you get a bit carried away with the trem you hear a "ping" and it's out of tune. But it takes a fair amount of abuse and i rarely use the trem and when i do i don't go Vai on it. I just wanted to see what its limitations were

    Thank you guys! I played out with it for the first time last night at a local bar. Not only was it an amazing guitar functionally for live situations but i got a lot of compliments on her! I'll make a review over the weekend.
