    IS there anyone out there with some pictures of these kits, i'm thinking about getting one but i kinda see what the finished product looks like, thanks.
     
  2. As I recall, there are pictures of the finished product--a Carvin B4 or B5--on the Carvin web site and in the catalog.
    There are alsopictures of the kit, and of the parts individually.

    there is one picture on their site but i wanted to see some pics of some that other people have done just to see if people liked them or not.
     
  4. Here's an idea I had. Go over to Harmony Central and look up the reviews for that kit. Then email the people who wrote reviews and ask them for pics. That's what I would do.

    www.harmony-central.com

    From there follow the links to the gear review and you know the rest.

    thanks, i tried that now i'll just wait for those guys to reply, but if anyone out there has pictures or opinions on these kits either e mail me or post something, i need something to either make up my mind or change my mind, i'm right in the middle right now.
     
  6. I was going to buy a kit just like you said. I was gonna get an Ash body, the HB pup and a few other things that I can't rememeber. The only reason I didn't was because I couldn't try it before I bought it. I talked to a friend of mine who works at a music store and he told me there's always a chance that I won't like how it feels. Then again there's a chance I might. But if I was gonna pay $800 Canadian then I wanted to be sure. So I got my Yamaha RBX765A. I really like it.
