Carvin Catalog Club

Postby Coda » Sat Jul 12, 2014 12:25 pm

Was your build immortalized in an issue of the Carvin catalog?

This club's for you! Let's see those beauties - catalog pictures, studio shots, NGD links and your photos are all welcomed and encouraged!

----------------

Not mine, but I'll get things started. :mrgreen:

Remember this issue?

Yup, it's Mr. Gumbynotpokey's handsome LB70PF Claro BEM HAN bass.

I am fairly sure the newest 2014 cat has at least 3 forum members guitars on the cover guitar [see it and that will make sense]
[2] DC7X 27", Loomis 26.5", S7G 27.5", Walden CE550, Ibanez 7 nylon string.
My Kiesel wish list - All 7 strings. All 27" scale option.
New symmetrical V7X, X227X, TL7X, C77X Bolt [smooth heel]

Holding strong as the Carvin Bolt Plus representative for 3 issues!
Page 40.

Facebook sneak peak:
Image

Lost and alone it sat in GIS without any interest or locking nut.
Image

$30 and one locking nut later (thank you Steve S.) and it's mine all mine
Image
Image

Only one change made - Rosewood knobs
Image

Hands down my current favorite Carvin and guitar for that matter.
I was never a fan of Koa, but the stripes on this one were just too much - it had to be mine!
I'm so glad I have a guitar with a floyd again (satisfies my 80s upbringing) and the HSH (new to me) is magical.

Did I mention those stripes??????

Yep, yours is one of the three I mentioned. SpamSpam and Hairmacht on the same cover guitar as yours.

The DC7X in Teal Swamp Ash in the latest catalog is a forum members. Spud liked that one a lot I think :)

They once published a letter I wrote to them in a catalog. Does that count? :mrgreen:

I didn't count to see if your letter was a thousand words however I should think having a letter to Carvin printed in their catalog is even more rare than getting ones guitar pictured.

I vote yes though we may need spud to do a poll :lol:

NO MORE POLLS!! :shock:

Congrats to all those on their imagination for the customs that made it in, and for the great taste for those who saw something special in an in-stock to make it into the catalog!

Well said!

Bovine I have to give credit to GNP for the idea for the thread, and even though I'm not a 'member' of the club, seeing all the great posts here makes me feel like I'm surrounded by celebrities! There's also something warm-and-fuzzy about seeing a guitar/bass in the catalog or in-stock, and then seeing it get a good home by a forum member. It fully connects the circle of life, or has some kind of spiritual meaning. I don't know. Maybe I just like seeing more pictures... :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Well in the spirit of community I'll say this -- actually, it was Catman and Arahobob that gave me the idea in a way -- hearing in other threads about those axes making the catalog -- BING! We need a thread on that!

Here's my "Jeannie"...

She's one of the first CT624's, built as a NAMM model.
She's still on the CT624 front page and gallery...

Image

I've seen her in at least 4-5 catalogs in the past, though it's been awhile now...

She's also a model on this guy's site:
