    ah that red quilt one is great too.. Combine them, red quilt with maple neck = drool.

    But thats a very tasty pair. wish I could afford TWO 727s, let alone one haha.

    If you're interested in what the stock pickups (could) sound like... lots of tweakage implied.

    Skip to the solo if you get bored :lol: I was really flat through most of it, but the solo's worth a listen.

    Agreed, although I think a matching headstock would have been the sex.

    May I ask how you ordered this, like how you got the ghost burst and the birds eye.
    And what were the specs on the order form that you sent in? That price seems pretty sweet for such a nasty guitar

    Total GAS for it :yesway:

    Just call Carvin up. The birdseye board is a standard available option on all their guitars. The paint was special order with a $100 upcharge, but they won't do this color anymore... too much of a pain in the ass. So there are 3 in existence (one CT and 2 DC727's, although the other two are more gray. Mine's better ;))

    Amazing. I like how the blackburst edges give the main body colour some depth.

    And of course, birdseye maple fucking rules.

    Wow! That is a nice guitar. The maple goes along with the silverburst perfectly imo.
