    NGD: Carvin Holdsworth Fatboy


    I've wanted one of these for over almost 20 years after playing my guitar teacher's Holdsworth. I picked it up off a friend locally who's been talking with me to get one of my guitars. He was going to sell this for around 6 so this was his deposit.

    It's a Holdsworth Fatboy hollowbody. It's a tad over 2 inches thick and is a really loud and percussive guitar. Big power chords have this huge growl to them to the point where i'm wary to screw with the pickups. I absolutely love it.

    Oh wow! That sure is pretty. Congrats!

    I've wanted one of these for years myself too. I've always loved the design and the headstock, plus I'm a big Holdsworth fan. Looks like you got a good slab of flame maple on that fretboard too...even under the dirt/grime.

    Wow, that thing is awesome. Dusty, but awesome.

    That guitar looks fascinating, man. Never seen one. Is it heavy? Have you played it yet?
    All I can ask is that I suck a little less each time I pick up my guitar...

    Very nice. The fretboard is pretty outrageous, and that colour is excellent.
