Carvin BBS ID: S3CUR3
Here's a nice collection of Carvin
six-stringers, in a nice assortment of woods and options.
First up is Tyler's DC127
It's a 2003 model, and has a very interesting look, with a mahogany body and
neck, and a plain maple top. Very interesting and cool. Tyler says:
"This DC127 hardtail was born
on 4/18/03. It has an M22SD and an M22N pickup, both zebra striped, a reverse
inline headstock, and rounded body sides, all topped off with gold hardware.
The body and neck are mahogany with a maple top and a flamed maple truss rod
cover. It's definitely the thickest sounding of my guitars and is a definite
keeper. This last pic is the money shot - the maple and mahogany together looks
Next is Tyler's 1998 DC127C, in
koa with a maple neck and maple fingerboard (below). Tyler says:
"Here's the next of my
"collection" - a 1998 DC127C with active electronics. I purchased it
off eBay last year and fell in love instantly. The neck on it is huge -
it reminds me of a cross between a '59 Les Paul and an 80's Jackson
contour. The radius on it is pretty big - my best guess is 10". I
really wish I could figure out what options are on the neck because it
is by far my favorite of any guitar. It has a maple neck and fretboard,
black left handed headstock, and a non-rounded mahogany body with a tung
oil finish. The black hardware was originally matched with a black C22N
and C22T humbucker, but the bridge pickup was replaced by a white
DiMarzio Evo. Stock, it came with active electronics, but after a great
deal of trouble with them, I took them out and went back to passives.
Passives match much better with the Evo. Also, the locking nut did not
come stock, but I had it installed by a local luthier. It's bolted
through the neck, which is the way that I would prefer anyway. Overall,
this is my favorite and most versatile guitar."
Tyler's mid-90's DC200T. It's all koa, with ebony fingerboard, black
painted headstock, MOP block inlays, black chrome hardware and Wilkinson
tremolo. It has active electronics with C22 pickups, coil splitters
and phase switching.
