I actually like the way they look better in this guitar than in the other one that was posted :shrug:

Like Planet Smasher said, I wouldn't order them, but they aren't a deal breaker for me.

Definitely does not look like a rosewood neck.

For starters, if it was, what kind of heathen puts a gloss finish on a rosewood neck :noplease:
I was thinking that it didnt look like rosewood after I posted also. to bad it wasn't in the carvin site anymore.

Unless the person who ordered it supplied the wood, that it not rosewood, carvin doesnt offer that option, plus it just looks like mahogany.

I was looking in getting a custom Carvin made (after all, they're reasonably priced for customs) and saw those inlays, chuckled, and picked abalone blocks.

what's wrong with having Overkill's flying skull on your inlay?

DEF not rosewood. Not even kinda. Thats just a nice dark chunk of mahogany for the neck, with a really light shade for the body. Youd think carvin would match them, but guess not

The body looks like maybe limba or a lighter mahogany. Honduran or South American mahogany are a lot lighter (in weight and in colour) than African mahogany, so it's possible it's just different species. It also looks like a burl top of some sort... definitely not standard-issue Carvin woods.

I was also thinking white limba.

Ive seen mahogany lighter than that even. Carvin recently started offering burl tops, didnt they?
Edit: Yes, they did
