    Went to the Carvin store in Hollywood today to feel and hear a few different options for a custom I will be ordering in the coming weeks and while I was there I couldn't resist way too good of a deal. :help:

    So I came home with this guy... :D

    Full Specs:
    LB75P
    HB2 Humbucker in the bridge position
    J99 Single coil in the neck position
    Piezo Bridge
    Active/Passive EQ
    Swamp Ash Body
    5pc Maple/Walnut neck
    Tung Oil Neck
    Ebony Fretboard
    Mother of Pearl Block Inlays
    Harlaquin Prismatique Finish

    ...Not my first choice for a finish but I couldn't pass up the deal I got (How do you complain when you are paying 1/3rd of the tagged price?) and this thing sounds and plays amazing. I am hooked.

    Just thought I'd share my new joy, and now off to rehearsal...

    Personally, I love the sparkly finish. I think under stage lights it would look awesome, especially to the crowd.
     
  4. Now get an old Kustom tuck-and-roll amp with the sparkly Naugahyde..... :D :D
