After a couple months of waiting, my Carvin finally arrived to me. I had to make a couple of adjustments to it out of the box, and I have issues with how UPS does deliveries, but otherwise I am extremely pleased with everything. I'll shut up and show off a few pictures Specs are: Maple neck/Swamp Ash body Blueburst finish Ebony fretboard Tung oil back of the neck finish Active/Passive electronics Stainless Steel Medium Jumbo frets Black chrome hardware The thing plays like a dream that I never want to wake up from. My only real concern so far is that The 7th string is a bit floppy when you really dig in, but it's not that noticeable. I'm so in love.
