Carvin's relationship with Jason Becker dates back to the late 1980s, and we're excited to welcome this influential and inspirational guitarist back to the Carvin family.
In response to Jason's legions of worldwide fans, we are proud to introduce the JB200C Jason Becker Tribute Guitar. The Custom Shop worked closely with Jason to replicate as closely as possible the Carvin DC200 that was one of his main instruments in the 80s and 90s. This new model is loaded with standard features, including a 4A flamed maple top and matching pointed inline headstock, original Floyd Rose tremolo with locking nut, flamed maple fingerboard with abalone dot inlays, tung-oiled hardrock maple neck, black hardware, M22SD & M22V pickups and active electronics. Jason's original guitar was finished in Sapphire Blue, but you can choose from any of Carvin's translucent flamed maple finishes, or upgrade your top wood to 4A quilted maple. You can also upgrade to Carvin's Deep Triple Step finish, which adds an almost 3-dimensional depth to the figure of the wood. A signature Jason Becker truss rod cover adorns the headstock.
Jason continues to impact the music world, as well as inspire guitarists of all genres. A new documentary film, Jason Becker: Not Dead Yet, explores his rise as one of the most influential neo-classical metal guitarists of his time, and his battle with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Everyone at Carvin is very excited to be working with Jason again as he continues to inspire a new generation of guitarists.
