Mike's Collection
Carvin BBS ID: delta362

Mike has a great collection of Carvin guitars, from a new CT6M, to a Bolt kit he made himself.  Below are each one, from newest to oldest, plus Mike's Bolt kit.


This is Mike's new CT6M, which arrived in September of 2004, making it one of the earliest ones produced by Carvin.  It has a mahogany neck (which is tung-oiled) and body, with a flamed maple top finished in Deep Triple-Step Green with matching headstock.  It has gold hardware, abalone block inlays and stainless steel frets.  Electronics consist of C22B and H22N humbuckers.  Mike also added an aftermarket mahogany truss rod cover, which mimics the CT headstock shape, and adds a real classy touch to this one.

Below is Mike's 2002 DC150.  It has a tung-oiled mahogany neck, and mahogany body with rounded sides.  It's finished in ultra-cool pearl silver, and has black hardware, which makes for a nice contrast.  Electronics are M22T and C22N pickups.

Next is Mike's DC127.  It has a maple neck and koa body, with a quilted maple top and matching headstock finished in purpleburst.  Hardware is chrome, and the ebony fingerboard has abalone block inlays.  Electronics consist of M22N and M22T pickups, with the DC200 upgraded active electronics.

Last is Mike's 2001 Bolt kit.  It's got a maple neck and swamp ash body, finished in translucent blue.  It has chrome hardware with Sperzel locking tuners and a Wilkinson tremolo.  Electronics consist of a C22B humbucker and a pair of AP11 single coil pickups.  Very nice!
