Just ordered my first 7, and second Carvin. DC7x jet black satin birdseye board and headstock walnut/maple neck with mahogany wings body edge binding with rear naked clear Very similar to Vinchester's beautiful build that has been hanging around the front page lately. Ed was very helpful in taking my order, and offered advice where needed. I don't smoke cigs but my first thought after hanging up was "man I might need a smoke now". It's a good feeling, now the wait begins.
