That burst exceeded ALL my expectations to say the least! I obviously was worried: I never ordered a Carvin, I payed more $ (although only $100 - not bad), and I was stuck with it no matter what. Now it's my favorite guitar I've ever owned and I've owned a few beauties!

Same for me with my Lizardburst... though it was perhaps a little less risky because I'd seen Carvin do the finish before.

Carvin now has my full confidence when it comes to strange requests! :mrgreen:

I love your lizardburst, CMGio! I considered that but wanted something wholly unique. Yeah, I only had yuuriekun's PS as an example, but it turned out so much better than that even! And, yes, I have complete confidence in Carvin for future special requests, so much so that I'm having them do a unique stain on my burl SH65. (I'm SO looking forward to that guitar!). Those shop guys are pretty incredible and have a great artistic eye!

I wonder if they could/ would do a gold burst such as Blue mist with thin gold top burst? That would be unusual.

If you had something to give Carvin to use as a reference, I'm sure they'd do it as an opt50. Unless, of course, they think it'll look horrible, then they'd say, no, you're an idiot for wanting that. :P

It gets better the more it's played.

Holy crap on a cracker! That based loosely on Kuhboom's orange c66? This looks amazing.

I'd like that blue burl better with something other than the teal center - maybe a lighter white/blue, but it's still awesome. Hope my stained burl comes out as good as this or kuhbooms!

I used to play Ibanez guitars, then I took a Carvin in the knee.

That one is actually quite a bit older than Kuhboom's C66, I think.


Aaaaaand, if I do recall, it's not actually burl, either. It's an option 50 birdseye top.

Yeah but my cat kept me up all day meowing and pawing at the door. my wife started working thirds and my cat is not used to not having some one with her 24-7 so she's been getting a it vocal during the day when we're both trying to sleep.
