Compared to the number of times I have posted my claro topped fretless? You're not even CLOSE.

Peace, brother. Peace.

Wow! :shock: This thread is back from the dead! Makes me realize I mentioned my opt50 SH65 with such anticipation and received with such disappointment. Here's the photo I sent them to match:

And this pic:

I received pretty much just sunset burst over the most bland burl I've seen from Carvin:

That makes it pretty unusual then, lol. (We can laugh about it now, right)?.
I was pretty disappointed in that one too, Appollyon.

There are some nice looking bursts in this post. My next Carvin will have a wine red finish with black burst edges.

I love their wine, Alan - beautiful color. IF I get another Carvin, it'll have a pink center with a wine burst. Ill haveto move a couple unused carvins I ccurrently have first though.
That burst is amazing, Hairmacht! I'm jealous I didn't think of it first! Not as jealous as I am of your CS ( missing frets and all :P ) but still jealous. :P

lol, what do you need with those 12 extra notes anyways? ;D

I absolutely love your guitars too man, if I had the extra cash I'd be taking your unwanted ones for sure.

I might be biased but I still think this was one of the coolest honeyburst finishes I've seen:

The yellow really flouresces under the sun and the gradual orange/into/red just makes it for me.

Somebody posted this old thread on another one, sorry I missed that cherryburst!

That's pretty incredible! I'd send that picture in for them to match!

EDIT: That's honeyburst?!?!?!? Gibson needs to take a few lessons from Carvin's finishing department! 2013 has been the best year for Carvin's finishes yet. They look as good as like, PRS finishes lately. Love it.

Nurpleburst!

I need to figure out how to get more correct pics of this guitar. The edges are violet, not blue as they appear here.

Word is they're offering faded finishes now, so I'm bumping this thread to get ideas in the cooker.
