    Specs:
    Strings
    Claro Walnut top
    Swamp Ash
    Koa with maple stripes
    Flamed Maple fretboard
    Tung Oil finish
    Stainless steely jumbos
    20" radius

    Thoughts:
    Looks beautiful and plays even better. The neck feels AMAZING with the tung oil. The pickups are some of the best ive used. Extremely responsive to tone and volume controls, most likely due to the pre amp inside. There are a few scratches on the ash under the tung oil finish. It looks like some dragged a screw driver across the wood. Also there is some black (no one likes black!) next to some of the frets and I really hope it comes off.

    Vid on Wednesday after I take my test in the morning. Dang Maymester.

    Ahh it also came with a really nice case! For those of you who get one of these make sure to slide the locks to open the outer latches. I spent like 3 solid minutes trying to figure this out. Almost just ripped the thing open.

    Claro Walnut is probably my favorite top, out of any top. It just looks so incredible and fits in well with Rosewood, Ebony, and Maple alike. Awesome guitar dude. What fretboard radius?

    Awesome top? Check.
    Artsy shots that don't show more than a "sideboob," as it were? Check.

    Get us a head on view of that monster!

    Wish granted! Also added a picture to show how flamey the neck looks.


    Yeah I was so happy to see what top I got when I opened the case. There is a good tinge of red in it and it just looks so dimensional with all the figuring.

    Wow. This might just be my favorite DC800 NGD yet. Can get some full frontal pics so we can really see that top in all it's glory?

    I've never seen a claro walnut top quite like that. It looks like a one dimensional version of Chewbacca's hair, and that's a good thing. CRAZY walnut top!

    Meow, good job. Whatever you did with the options, good fucking job!

    Every other carvin I've seen with a walnut top just seems to be so damn glossy. but yours takes the cake man... mmm :wub:
