That's pretty nice!
And different. I like the switches. Looks like cool splitting for single coils and humbucker combinations
Nice. I've always heard that Carvin's are extraordinarily well made guitars that are extraordinarily underrated.
I’ve always wanted one of those. I got the Carvin catalog every year, and drooled all over it, until the next one came out. I never did manage to get one, though... A friend of mine got one (a blue superstrat type with a pointy headstock) in the late 90’s. He ripped out all the original electronics, stuck a single JB in it, had it routed for a Floyd, and played it in his Metal band. It had the skinniest shredder neck I ever felt.
Have you looked at the Carvin Museum?
Lots of fun stuff to look at over there. Happy NGD!
I’ve owned dozens of Carvins over the years. I had the bolt on version of this guitar back in 2006.
Ebony board and stereo, pretty high end specs
Today I need to figure out how the stereo part works, I've forgotten since the last one. Also the coil split switch for the neck pickup isn't working, it's full humbucker or nothing. Also need to try and find some matching knobs. Looks much better in person, it has sort of a golden flake look to it that the camera doesn't really pick up. The mini toggle closest to the pickup selector is a phase switch. Carvin never kept exact date records so the best I can tell is it's an 80 or 81.
Frets before and after. Original owner hadn't played it in years. It showed.
Can’t see the pics.
I see them.
Wow nice score
THAT is a gem!! Nice score! I would have snapped that up in heartbeat.
Is it heavy, being (very pretty) Maple? I really dig that.
You have a beautiful player there. These types of things dont show up locally here.
Figured out how to use the stereo function and I fixed the one loose wire so now everything works as it should.
Very Cool,Lonn.....Known about this brand for years, another catalog junkie...I think I saw one (not this model, a pointy one) once, in a pawnshop.......Of Course I had no Bux......
I'm masochistic that way..........I may be getting better??????.....
Anywho, looks great, I think it probably is a good guitar........................willhowl
Very cool guitar imo. They were cool guitars i thought in the 70's and then i lost track of them. Good find i hope it's a keeper.
