I'M BACK! Ha Ha HAA, I'm Baaack! Ha HA Ha Ha Ha :lol: I'm-- oh, sorry, I, um, well, I was locked out for a couple of days. But I'm back now! Thanks Kev, you da man! And thanks to you guys for the compliments on the little ole collection. The '95 is still my favorite 'cause DC127s can play anything! However, these is a Sunburst Bolt with FT6 Bridge on the in-stock pagethat has me wondering if I should just, ...

Wow, this blows. I snagged an ash-bodied Bolt from the in-stock page last week, got a notice that my order shipped, then got an e-mail that said Carvin doesn't ship to APO addresses. But wait--click on My Humble Collection here at the Carvin Museum; three of the four guitars shown were mailed to my APO addresses at various times during my overseas tours. When did this policy change? I really wanted that Bolt.

LindseyP- I run into the APO problem all the time. You can set up an account with shipitapo.com and then you'll have a regular US address where you can have all your packages forwarded to you.

For APO mail going to Korea, the USPS sends everything to a depot in SanFrancisco. The civilian contractors there are notorious for stealing packages (I learned that the hard when when my MacBook got stolen in the mail- 5 months later and I'm still waiting on the insurance payment). The problem is that the customs form tells them exactly what's inside the box. The guys at shititapo rebox the package, then they fill out the customs form to read "household goods in accordance with AR...". In other words, they tell the contractors that box is legal, but they don't specify whats in it. I don't know if theft is a problem for mail going to Iraq, but for something like a guitar, you might consider that.

Hope this helps.

Nah, three of those 4 guitars were shipped from Carvin to APOs in Korea and arrived just fine. They were all in-stock guitars, too. Carvin or I can get the insurance claim and order another one in case of theft. APOs are normal US addresses--the ones over here are for NY and every Post Office knows that.

However, I may be violating Rule A, so I'm going to stop while I'm ahead. No need to upset my favorite guitar company, especially since I'm already working out whether to get a BB or an Icon when I get back to reality.

Hmm :think: , maybe reading this thread can convince my little brother, after five years of begging, to finally send me the Black DC127 he's been keeping for me...

LindseyP, you can send the guitar to me and I will ship it directly to your APO address unopened. Serious. I can't see one of our servicemen overseas going without a Carvin he wants. Contact me via PM if you'd like to discuss it further.

Yeah! My little brother remembered last week where he stashed my first Carvin! Now it's here, and still has the perfect neck!
Image
It sucked all of the light from my flash. It was too hazy for a proper light reading outside, so I'll take some better shots tomorrow.
1995 DC127
Maple neck
Poplar body (that's right, last year it was available!)
M22T/M22N (that's 22 adjustable polepieces per humbucker)
15-inch fretboard radius
The most perfectly shaped, best feeling, tung-oiled neck known to man!
I tuned it down a step before packing it 4 or 5 years ago; unpacked it last night, tuned it back to standard today--it's as if I never let it go, Man. My old friend is home. :applause: :applause: :applause:

In perspective, ...

First, thanks for serving our country.

I love your Bolt. What's the pink sticker-like thing below the tone pot - did you remove a switch and cover the hole with it?

You've got a good eye!
No, that's a reminder of where I was when I got it. It's the 10th Mountain Division shoulder patch; they're headquartered in upstate New York -- where the record 110 inches of snow fell last month!
The patch is actually red, white and blue. The blue outline is shaped like a gunpowder keg; bayonets are crossed like the roman numeral for 10 (X) on a red background. Over the top is the word MOUNTAIN in an arc. At that size is does look like a piece of bubble gum, but that patch has been worn in more deployments in the past two decades than any other.
Not that I've been with them when they were called, mind you...

Thank you both for your service. Safe home LindseyP. I once played bass and sang "Long Tall Sally" at a jam in a German Beer Hall, 1968, while an E-4 in the 42d Artillery Group HQ, Giessen, Germany. We were promptly shown the exit. But I learned a new riff, and drank some of the best beer in the world. Giessener Brauhaus. Cowbell me if you want, but you can't make this stuff up. :laughhard:

You're right, you can't make this stuff up. Everyone should get out and see how other people live in the world.

Bundy, I remember you posting that photo on the previous version of these pages. Those fatigues are definitely Apocolypse Now! Man, I just realized I've gone through four versions of this uniform since I joined, who am I kidding... You have a pm
