NGD, DC127... I'm in love!!

It arrived this afternoon, and I'm smitten. It plays unbelievably smoothy, and is gorgeous in an understated manner. The Lithium pickups are smokin' too!

Dig it! It got a real classic Carvin vibe but with some new features. Congrats.

Congrats! I'm considering a similar build now that the DC600 is no longer 25" scale. What's the forearm cut like on current builds? In the 80's it was pretty minimal. Can you post a couple of pictures edgewise from the top and bottom sides?

Very nice!

I really like the contrast of the maple board.

It's still pretty minimal, as is the tummy cut compared to a Strat. I'll post a couple of pictures this evening to give you a better idea. It's still really comfortable, just different. And a tad heavier.

Hopefully this gives you a better idea...

Less than the "old" DC600 is you didn't get a top, but still miles better than a DC127 from the 90s to the early aughts.

Do you know if adding a top to the DC127 changes the cut like it did with the old DC600?

I don't believe so... I'm not 100% certain, but I don't believe so.
