    Just got it today so I can't really provide an in depth review just yet. It sounds fantastic on cleans, and I already love the coil splitters on it. Overall the guitar has a nice bright punchy tone without being shrill which is exactly what I was going for. Everything feels very high quality from the fretwork to the finish and setup! :shred:

    That's a very unique axe man. Nice spec choices.
    I was expecting another gator-burst type finish when I seen the thread title lol.

    Nice! Hope you enjoy! My second DC 700 should be here in a few weeks and I'm pumped. Did you get the 14 inch or 20 inch radius? I love my Carvin! For the price point they can't be beat.

    Thanks everyone! I'm really satisfied with how everything came out on it, I already know my next guitar will be a Carvin as well (this was my first!).


    I went for the 14" raduis. I think 20" would be too flat for me... this feels just right! It's very true what people have said about the necks feeling more like an Ibanez than a Schecter, it definitely has a flatter feel to it than I was expecting.

    Carvin's keep looking sexier and sexier !

    I just don't like how they transition the non-painted neck heel area to the body... yuck.

    Love the neck, but I love that Ibanez even more! What is that? I've never seen anything like it...
