I wish I had gotten in on the group buy, but I don't give a hoot if people who did are selling theirs - even if at a markup. Supply and demand, people! :D

So... Who's up for us Carvinites initiating a BBS Vader group buy?

That's fine.
My compassion lies with those who REALLY wanted one of these and missed out.
I guess I was just thinking of them.

Dude. Roy Vogt is my homeboy (Denton TX). Just a couple years older than me. Met him at McBride's Music & Pawn on the Square once, about 1977-78. He was test-driving an Alembic bass and playing the GUITAR riff from "Race with Devil on Spanish Highway."

:shock:

Tore it UP.

Is he a Carvin artist? Never saw him on the endorser's page...

Roy has played Carvin for decades, as I understand it. Google his name and the word Carvin. Look on the Talkbass forum. Look on youtube. One of his students is Mario Sangermano - a pro player in Nashville. Mario is on this BBS. These men are true gentlemen every time they post. And both are patient with dudes like me. Mario helped me in PM land on my transition to fretless, tips on the lines/no lines thing, etc. Roy posts on Talkbass. He commented on my walnut fretless NBD thread over there - I'm still considering printing/laminating/framing his statement about loving the bass.


Mario mentions Roy as endorser

Redlined. Double-checked the endorsers page, he's definitely not there--and yet:

Vanquish Roy Vogt Demo

Says he's been with Carvin since 1992!

They REALLY need to update their website...

I'd be intrigued, but it would need to be the right set of specs. It couldn't be too blinged-out like the DC7x was. I would rather forgo some of those specs to bring the price down.

There was only one orange cali-burst done in the run. Jeff loved the way it turned out and kept posting pics of it. I loved my blue GP7X, but I was regretting not choosing orange. So when it came up for sale a few months later, I bought her. :-)
