  • This is why Carvin gets a bad rap about having ugly guitars...

    http://washingtondc.craigslist.org/nva/msg/2762510216.html





    Seriously people, if you are going to make a custom guitar or choose from some options, do some research first. At least take a day to think it through.

      Wow....someone custom picked that color? For the headstock as well? Why?

      It kinda looks like what you'd expect a starter pack guitar to look like painted that way....

          I'd say it's prolly more the flying V headstock on that body style. But sparkle paint is always ghey, too

              See, the paint wasn't really the first thing that jutted out to me TBH. I think my brain was having issues processing the flying v headstock+superstrat body combo. My eyes said the same guitar, but my brain kept thinking it was two separate guitars.

              Trolling is a art.


              See, you can tell I'm a noob cause its only after you pointed out that's a flying V headstock that I noticed.

              The headstock isn't as jarring to me as the color. Partially cause I HATE matched paint headstocks in almost all instances except black.

              Now that you've pointed it out....now its all I see. Funny how the brain does that.

                  Where have you seen a carvin with binding? Virtually none of them come with binding nor do they use a lot of abalone. The real abalone culprits in the guitar business are schecter. And that crap isnt even real. And before im accused of It I will flat out admit that im a carvin fanboy. But thats only because I got sick of overpaying for guitars of lesser quality. I will admit that the guitar above is ugly. But that is the fault of the person who ordered it. Not carvin. I would have to suggest holding off on bashing carvin untill you have played or owned a couple. Having owned many customs I can say without hesitation that their quality is top notch and rivals many guitars 2-3 times their price. And if you want a high quality american guitar at a reasonable price they virtually have 0 competition.

                        Regarding the Carvin headstocks some are just horrible like the CT, SC and TLB, but I like the look of their DC/Bolts and their 7 string headstocks when done right with the colors. Some dude around here has a Carvin bolt with this custom japanese looking logo on his Carvin's headstock that looked great. A lot of it depends on the person and how well they can choose options for their guitar. But it is more entertaining when they don't know wtf they are doing .
