    NGD: 7 string

    I sold on my Jackson HT6 as the neck just wasn't what I liked anymore. Beautiful guitar but needed to move on.

    Having looked at all kinds of different guitars, I settled on a 7 string. I was trying to find an old Universe (green dot or silver dot) but they were going for too much money or I just missed out on one.

    Then a few Carvin DC747s came up for sale. I remember loving the DC135 I had, so I took the plunge.

    I've got a few mods planned in the future (new pickup's and maybe change out the PING Floyd rose for a real one) but as it is, it's a great player. Really pleased

    I've owned one of these and played a few really great ones. These are really sweet, super comfortable guitars man. Enjoy it, that looks great!

    Nice! Part of me regrets not buying a Carvin back when they said Carvin on the headstock.

    Hey, Jacksonplayer had one of these (Koa, of course) when he auditioned for Division - though I think his didn't have the Floyd? Nice guitars - I remember Matt Garcia from /7/ having one with Lundgrens in it that might have been the best sounding Carvin I've ever played, six or seven. Good score.

    Thanks Mike. The pickups are letting this one down sadly. Not terrible but way too much bass. So I may change out the bridge pickup for a Dimarzio of some kind, maybe the EVO7

    That’s gorgeous. Color me jealous. Have any samples? Would love to hear your before/after pup swap tones.
