That Green TL is super sweet. Though I'd wanna throw some Twinblades in it.

Check out this mean machine. It's rare that I would say, "I wouldn't change a thing".
ok maybe sig inlays lol

So yeah...

I came in on Saturday and shot 6 carts of guitars to for the In-Stock section.
Kevin should have dumped them all on there by now.

There were some reeeeeally cool ones in there.
Have fun!

Lately, I've been frothing for green over black limba. If only that Xccelerator were narrow spacing, it would be mine.

I know, right? I don't want a floyd and I don't want a seven string...but I want that. :lol: not a bad price, either, at $1459, I think.

Looks like a one-piece "plain" (but gorgeous) maple top on this natural beauty:

Looks like the light black Kiesel fretboard treatment over birds eye maple.

Dear Santa,

Feel free to bring me one similar to this, but please don't turn me left-handed. :)

If you are talking about the green bass, it is the new Antique Ash Treatment. No such thing as flamed ash :wink:

But yes, very beautiful indeed :mrgreen:

PS. Beware that the AAT treated Ash looks darker in person (I got one Trans Pearl Blue and one Trans Purple).
The grain is not that visible, plus it is almost impossible to take such great pictures without professional photo equipment and lightning (and a bit more contrast/saturation added in pic editing).

That said, almost all Carvin guitars in any color are looking a bit darker in person than on screen/computer monitor.

Yes there is. Carbin doesn't offer it, but just like with plain maple, you sometimes get sections of some figuring.

More ash with flame:

A. that green bass has some flame in it. The treatment brings it out.

B. I haven't seen any AAT with color in person. But I am very aware of how Carvin juices their pics. It's a bummer, for sure.

C. Clear AAT looks awesome! Click the link in my sig, to see my Icon with clear gloss AAT. No added color.
