    NGD: Carvin DC700

    Decided to dive head first into the Carvin/Kiesel custom shop bandwagon. A buddy of mine kept hounding me about trying out their guitars, that I might be surprised at how good they are. For a long time I thought they were just plain ugly. No offense to the 727 owners out there, I just don't like rounded edges.
    So I ordered up a DC700 as my first. I was a bit aprehensive about the necks being to fat so I opted for the "thinner" neck option. Here are the rest of the specs....

    Mahogany wings
    5-piece maple/mahogany neck
    spalted maple top
    Original Floyd Rose
    Kiesel lithium pickups
    ebony fretboard
    stainless steel med/jumbo frets
    3-way toggle w/single vol

    Pretty simple build and that's what I was aiming for. I'm so tired of blade switches I couldn't bear to have another on a guitar. What I'm most impressed with are the pickups. The low end is tight like a BKP and the high end reminds me of an evo 7. Will pretty much cut through anything. Been playing it a lot as my fingers are sore as hell. Then neck is very comfy, like the fatter wizzard 7's that you find nowadays.

    Guitars are like pringles....You can never have just one!
