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...
I wanted to share this cover I put together in the past few months... Liquid Tension Experiment's Acid Rain.
I recorded the whole thing (minus the improvised solos) from scratch, the bass, drums and keyboards are sequenced, the guitars is me and the Axe FX II straight into the...
Amazing Carvin DC700 7-string guitar. See the specs for this axe below. Costs me $1348 +shipping about 6 months ago.
Snag mine for $1100 shipped OR BEST OFFER!
Like new condition. This deserves to be played. Custom made in the USA. Comes with hardshell Carvin case.
EDIT: Wife abandoned our...
Here's a taste from last night's Scarecrow Messiah gig. Not the best video footage in the world, but I gotta say that DC700 looks great onstage. :)
My personal favorite bit starts at the 4:00 mark. That's where I actually come into frame & crank off a rippin' solo. :lol:
Just one pic? Yeah, I know. Lame, but I'll take some more when I'm not running 100 miles an hour.
So yeah, this guitar rocks! Beautiful color, killer tones, insane playability & I even got a killer birdeye maple fretboard upgrade. :flex:
Greenie II, perhaps? I'm already planning my next...
Since I have the frilly Holdsworth model, this time, I wanted to get something that was a simple, old school shredder.
Radiation Green Metallic
Natural Body Binding
Painted Satin Neck
SS Jumbo frets

Just got my first Carvin and my first nice 7-string and I love this axe already. I know its been done but I love the look of walnut and thought it be a good match for the other woods. This thing kills, got rehearsal later today so I will finally crank the volume. Its a swamp ash body, maple...
Belated NGD (Now with wooden knobs!)
Last Thursday was a horribly slow day at work, for later that evening, a new member of the family was set to arrive.
Its a Carvin!
Still a Carvin!
A shot for you ass guys out there :D

For about $800 I can get an LTD H-1007. For about $1300 I can get a custom Carvin DC700 with the same body/neck woods, neck construction, and controls layout. What does the extra $500 buy? Well, aside from Carvin build quality, it buys an ebony fretboard, stainless steel frets, and Sperzel...
So Carvin's DC700 has been expanding its options list lately. Over the holidays it acquired the same fixed bridge option as the DC7x7 series as well as passive C26 pickups. So now, when I feel the time is right, I will probably have them make me one: alder/maple, transparent black burst on flame...
I just got the carvin catalog today, and they have a new 7 string model. I looked on carvin.com and it doesnt look to be there yet. And the DC727 and 747(the new one is the 700) arnt in the catalog. I'm assuming they are discontinuing them? Oh, and the 700 has a new headstock on it.
