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.

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
