Scott Reiner's DC200T
Carvin BBS ID: sreiners

This is one of my favorite Carvins.  This is a '95 model, with M22N and M22T pickups, Wilkinson tremolo, alder body, and tung-oiled maple neck with gold hardware.  The most obvious feature is the custom paint job, done by Scott's father-in-law, Ron Goben.  Just stunning!  You can see lots more photos on Scott's website, as well - swing on by!

Chacal's DC200

Even in France, Carvin is popular.  This left-handed 1994 DC200 with a Kahler tremolo belongs to French guitarist Chacal, and it is a beauty.  Tobacco sunburst, chrome hardware, block inlays, and a left-handed Kahler - something you don't see every day.  Note the non-standard chrome pickup rings - that really adds to an already beautiful guitar.  Merci, Chacal!

Jason Andreasen's DC200T
Carvin BBS ID: Jason_A


This actually is Jason's "former" DC200 - he sold it to subsidize his DC127, but this is worth mentioning, nonetheless.  It has M22T and M22N pickups, abalone block inlays, chrome hardware, and a Wilkinson tremolo.  It's finished in ruby red stain on flamed maple with matching headstock.

What's really cool about this one is that it was the model on several parts of  For example, in the Jamroom, it was used as the representative DC200, and it was also used on the main guitars page, as the small icon for the model.  It's certainly worthy of being featured in such a way - it's a gorgeous instrument!

Martin Ford's DC200C "18 Special"

Here's the most unusual DC200 on the Museum.  Martin, who lives in the UK, ordered this for his 18th birthday in June 2005 (hence the name), and went all out.  The most obvious feature, however, is the Holdsworth headstock - an option Carvin ordinarily won't do.  In addition, Martin's DC200 has abalone dots on rosewood, chrome hardware, Sperzel tuners, a Floyd Rose tremolo, and is finished in Deep purple with blackburst edges.
