    Well Ladies and Gents I finally got pics of the new(ish)Spector and profitted of the camera acces to snap a family shot and a shot of the Aria.

    hrm, not impressed with the very open grain FB, my only complaint.

    this shot shows the quilt real well, it depends on the lighting, sometimes it just looks black.

    The Family! This pic best shows the ACTUAL colour of the Carvin.

    thanks for the kind words all. Yes I love the Carvin dearly, I'm still astonished by the quality: price ratio, it's outstanding. I see u have some on your GAS list, if you can get past the sub-par / poor customer service I wouldn't think twice about getting one.

    I'm planning on having the board covered with Diamondkote (If I can find some?) or a polyeurethane in the near future.
