    Since all the ibby guys are in their respective pens, us Carvinites need to finally band together and... Show each-other pictures of our guitars and show off/discuss mods etc. I guess :scratch:

    So, yeah let's do that!

    First up, my 200X Carvin 727, which I bought pretty damn used, I mean it's got a few dings, but I love it all the same. It's got an M7 in the bridge but otherwise stock (for now):

    Here's my koa/swamp ash baby :wub:. I got her on May 15, 2010. I have a pickup swap planned, but can't seem to get around to doing it... Yet.

    Things that may look like dings or nicks are just dust or reflections. Cant really catch the true beauty of the wood/color with a camera :noway:

    Only one trem'ed specimen so far. Time to feel special, Cancer!

    How do you feel about the pickups (HSH) so far, Skin Coffin?

    So happy to see some Carvin love! I love these guitars. Here's my walnut and maple 727 with flamed maple fingerboard, and Bare Knuckle Cold Sweat bridge, Painkiller neck.

    badass guitar!!! i feel most carvins are kinda bright, also with the neck thru, my 727 seems brighter than my other 7s. does the CS bridge sound overly bright in your 727?

    Not with the amp settings I use on my Axe Fx Ultra. These plus dark warm sounding amps equal insane amounts of mojo.

    Wow these guitars look phenomenal! I think I know what my next seven will be hehe.

    How would the neck on these compare with your typical ibby seven neck? Thinner? Wider? Thicker?
