    Some of you may have seen this in the NGD thread I posted a couple months back. It's been played only a handful of times and otherwise kept in its case. It's still in new condition. I really love it but I need to sell off a few guitars to justify a large purchase I just made. This guitar has been professionally setup for C standard tuning but I can have my tech set it up to your tastes for no charge. Also can install different pickups if anyone wants, although the stockers sound very good. FWIW Carvin no longer offers the 'Figured Claro Walnut' option on these. I paid $1500 for this so I think this is a pretty good deal on a like-new gem of a guitar. Will of course entertain offers though!

    Here's what I wrote in my original thread:

    "Hey guys. I've been on a bit of a semi-hollow kick lately after playing some of the PRS and G&L ones at my shop and really loving the light-weight and added resonance. However I wanted one that was a bit more 'metal' and had specs more to my liking (24 frets, 14" radius, etc). Alas, here it is. I'll be honest Carvin has disappointed me in the past with a few duds they sent me, but this guitar is absolutely perfect. It sounds and feels great, even stock. That said some black satin covered BKPs are on the way for this and it's been tuned to B standard. I also love how it doesn't feedback at all with high-gain settings, which is a concern I had going into it.
