    I got my DC727 in february. I love it to death. Best $1100 I ever spent.

    Carvin should make 8 strings.

    It was the only Carvin pickup I have ever preferred the driven voice to the clean voice, it was too much for cleans.

    But it would need a good longer scale too. 29" maybe?

    Fo' sho. it could be... :idea: a neck option :eek: . Customer's choice. 25" (high A) and up to 30". If that would ever happen :ugh:

    It could possibly happen.
    It would give a good bit of 8 string makers (strictly 7, ibanez, agile...) a good bit more competition. I mean, a USA custom-made 8 string starting at less than 1,000 (lets hope so). Hells yes.

    Consdering Carvin doesn't do a long scale 7, or even a 24 fret 25.5" scale 6, I wouldn't hold your breath.

    so....i've narrowed down my decision onto these guitars. a CT624 in tiger eye with thin blackburst, or a CS6 moss green guitar. they would look kinda like this:
    [​IMG]

    and this is a 'concept' as the original guitar doesn't exist...

    i always like the idea of a singlecut. to me they feel more solid and look sexier. plus that neck joint seems to be calling me. but on the other hand, i really want 24 frets.

    yeah, i will prolly end up getting both sometime down the line. but what do i get first? :S both would cost me about 1700 and 1650 respectively, so its not that big a difference to write home about...:S

    CT624 oh my god, it is beautiful. I would trade my LTD EX 401DX and my LTD Deluxe H1001fm for it holy shit it looks so nice.

    Your picture is a CT6 not a CT624, remember then made the neck a little longer and move the bridge up, which I find looks funny. I don't like the bridges that far forward either.

    i know, but there is no ct624 with a tiger eye and black burst (not to my knowledge at least). so if i do get a CT624, it would be based on that guitar but i'll prolly throw zebra pickups in there and most likely no inlays... :scratch:













    on an unrelated note, heres another option 50 color/fade....i think it was niknamed 'Bahamas burst'?

    This is my Carvin DC400 (camera is set at lowest quality sound and video). Love the thing to death. Amazing fretboard access and versatility. Great for rock, metal (including the djenty kind), and fusion. I've played guitars that have had better woods and playability like some Tom Andersons, Suhrs, and Tylers...but for the price Carvin completely destroys, especially since you're pretty much getting everything YOU want for less than 2,000$.
