Carvin BBS ID: dto
a nice group of Carvin's, with a
variety of finishes and features. Dave has many, many more
pictures on his website, as well as pictures of his non-Carvin guitars -
be sure to take a look.
Dave's 2003 Bolt+ (below). It's finished in tobacco sunburst on swamp
ash, with a maple neck and ebony fingerboard. It has the FT6 bridge,
and the hardware is black chrome.
Dave's 2005 Contour 66. It's a hardtail model, finished in vintage
yellow on flamed maple with matching headstock. The body is mahogany,
and the neck is maple. The fingerboard is birdseye maple with no
is this great looking carved top model (below). The
CT3M has a mahogany body and neck, without the flamed or quilted top
found on a CT6M, and Dave ordered his with a clear finish, but with sunsetburst edges, which allows the mahogany to show through, but adds a
little color. A great finish! Other features include
stainless steel frets on an ebony fingerboard with no inlays, black
chrome hardware, and C22B and C22N pickups.
Here's is Dave's most recent addition - this 2005 Bolt+.
Dave really lucked out on the wood for this one - the swamp ash has
a great figure to it, and the headstock has an interesting grain to
it, as well.
Dave's recently-sold DC727C. It's a 2004 model, with mahogany neck and body,
ebony fingerboard with no inlays, Floyd Rose tremolo, black chrome
hardware, and is finished in ruby red stain on quilted maple with blackburst edges.
recently sold is this
2004 DC127M (left and above). This one also has a mahogany body with
tung-oiled maple neck, ebony fingerboard with no inlays, black chrome hardware,
and is finished in sapphire blue on quilted maple. Nice!
