    ^ Awesome reply, and if I may add one thing, that if you haven't 'confirmed' these specs on the phone with someone at Carvin, it is better that you do. My DC700 was way much simpler than this and still the finished guitar was not exactly what I ordered.

    Emailed carvin a few weeks ago. They will put the hipshot on the 25.5" DC700 for an additional $100 and it's an opt 50 so it will void return policy.
    Kinda silly but I'm considering taking the risk since I'm not a fan of 27"

    What the hell? Option 50? I understand the upcharge, but it being an option 50 is kinda retarded imo.

    What the fudge is up with that top horn? It's far too long. Like Carvin is marketing 7 string dildo's for Death Metal :lol:

    I'll wait until the 27" DC727/747 comes around.

    I like it better personally. The DC700 horns always seemed too small.

    I wondered the same thing at first, but I believe it's to even out the balance of the guitar due to the extended scale. The DC800 body is pretty much identical. So yeah, I don't think they'll be doing the standard scale DC727/747 bodies with 27" scale because it'd probably be neck heavy. :yesway:

    I just made a post on the Carvin BBS about this. I can't believe there hasn't been a single DC7X NGD yet. When I asked, someone pointed me to a thread of a guy who had supposedly gotten the first one, but I had replied in THAT thread indicating that I had already ordered mine. I'm positive that I'm not the first one that trolls these forums to have ordered... I suppose it's possible but I can't wait to see some. It's gonna be AT LEAST a month until my NGD unless they get my new guitar to me sooner. Time will tell. I imagine in the next month or two we'll see a whole bunch of DC7Xs.

    (a) Trust me: you don't want guitar strings (let alone seven of them) on your dildos - makes it a nightmare to clean and/or dangerous to share and (b) I've got bad news for you; this IS the 27" DC727/47 :shred: since you can get passive pups and coil-splitters, Floyds, etc. It's basically everything that I WISH could be on the DC800 lol.

    That is a 100% true statement. I was talking to Jeff Kiesel about why no single cut baritone 7 strings, and he said they could technically do it, but they would have to move the upper horn so far up the neck to balance it, that it would look pretty silly. And they would rather not offer a model, than to do it, and have a really bad neck dive problem. Quality of models over quantity of models.

    Word. I thought there'd be a couple floating around by now. Mine is super barebones and was quoted for Feb 4th, so I'm also guessing that within February or early March is when most of the people who ordered first will get theirs.

    I called first day but due to my wanting "non standard" woods for much of my build the order could not be taken till Carvin actually had the woods I had bought for the build delivered to the Carvin facility.

    They have the woods now and my guitar should be done about the second week of March, perhaps a bit sooner. I am in no hurry as after waiting 6 years for Carvin to offer the extended scale 7 strings I would much rather wait an extra week or two and have the builders doing their best quality work rather than meeting some specific card date.

    Don't get me wrong though, I am so excited about my DC7X build and I know it is going to be my best guitar ever period! A keeper forever. Went with the Hipshot this time as the guitar will be my alternate tunings guitar.

    Looking for a neck blank for build #2 already ha. But that is going to be for a Carvin neck only from the Carvin parts page when they are available just as the 27" eight string necks are now for sale separately from Carvin's parts page. I am going to use it to build a seven string V or similar pointy 7. Don't see Carvin offering their Ultra V in a seven string so gotta give building my own a try.

    I saw a few of these at NAMM, and I think this was my favourite one:
    [​IMG]

    It had a super sparkly white finish! It was like a pearloid sparkle. Very cool, looked like sparkly snow! Of course I couldn't capture it in pics :p

    edit: And two others:

    Oh, man. I want one with a natural satin flamed maple top and a black limba body with a 5 piece walnut neck with koa fillets. And a black ass ebony board. Shit would be super dope.

    I wish Carvin had an online builder like Halo's. I'd literally spend hours there.

    I think that's the Diamond Pearl white.

    My DC7X GAS has gone nuts, I'm thinking black limba neck/body, satin diamond pearl white all over, gold hardware, flame maple fingerboard, OP 50 some White/Gold Bareknuckles in there. Maybe get a plain maple top to do some reveal binding.
