I believe this is in the right forum, if not please relocate it to the right one . I was wondering if anyone here had any experience in pursuing/receiving an endorsement or sponsorship from Carvin as my band and I are interested in attaining this. For what our leader/frontman does, one of the acoustic electrics offered by Carvin would fit the bill to a "T", allowing him to switch between acoustic and electric sounds instantaneously instead of unplugging, switching rigs and having to kill time while all this is happening. Our guitar player is also very interested in a Carvin guitar. Both from his positive exposure to my bass and the fact that, while his Washburn has served him well, his ability/skill level is starting to exceed his guitar (intonation, neck and fretboard issues). I figured since I already play a Carvin bass, use a Carvin power amp as part of my rig and my bandmates are interested, pursuing something with Carvin would be a great/smart way to get them outfitted with better gear at a better price point if not for free. The band has/is already touring in Europe as well as a few dates in the US and we just released a single to AC and INSPO Christian Radio, so I think that's enough exposure to warrant some kind of deal. Even if I could just get a deal that'd be great! I'd really like to rebuild my bass, but with a multi-piece neck, maple fretboard, and different color, so any deal I can get would accelerate that becoming a reality.
