Have just received the guitar i bought from Mat (ftrom this thread), and i must say he was a pleasure to deal with The guitar's in excellent condition, was shipped the next day after the PayPal transaction and packed well.
Ah right on, thanks for the pics man! The diamond inlays are always a turn-off for me (all the cheap BC Rich guitars I had with them ruined the look for me I think ) but I love EVERYTHING else about that guitar! I love the Carvin Bolt series too, that thing must kill! I don't typically play strats (love the tone, always clip the middle single coil!) but I think if/when I grab another one, I might order something like yours but with a trem. Seems like a versatile setup and some of the Carvin stock pickups are actually quite good (their Holdsworth and singlecoil stuff for example), just need to pair them up with the right woods.
Is that Carvin in your avatar one of your guitars or someone else's? If it belongs to someone else, would you mind sharing a link to more pics please? I saw Carvin added pink to their standard color options and I could have sworn I saw something similar (pink with purple edge burst) posted on the Carvin FB page but I wasn't sure if that was the same one or not?
