NGD! Carvin Wolf Is Here...

Postby brutusbuck45 » Tue May 25, 2010 6:05 pm

Here are a few pics. I just unboxed it and started clicking. I kept saying... Wow! I thought I would share. I have only played it for a few minutes and I can't believe the feel, playability and acoustic/unamplified tone. I have not been able to plug her into the Super 60 yet (kids were already in bed). That will have to wait until tomorrow. More to come...

YES! That is right. They are punishing themselves AND they get punished on that one special Saturday before Thanksgiving for the better part of a decade. I concur my friend... Life is Good!

I love it (and am glad I'm not the only one who chose H-S-H for his own "Jerrycaster" :smile: ).

HO--LEEE SHEEP SHIT! DERN DITTY BOY, YOU GOTTEN A GOODIN'!! CONGRATULATIONS!!

For real, I have to say that is one of the coolest guitars I've seen yet! I was waiting to see the outcome since you were choosing colors.... This has been a great few months on here for tribute guitars, between you and Dozin', the scott walker's and the other's I've peeked at, you guys got me wondering why I am playing these pieces of shit I've got (although I love my guitars and you can pry them from my dead cold hands one day if you want to give it a try).....This place has a Knack for egging me on to spend some money :lol:


What kind of pickups did you wind up using in there????

Sweet axe!!! Here are some pics of my Carvin. I have been playing it regularly for over two years now and am very pleased. Tom Lieber did the electronics ( demarzio super 2s and SDS ) and he himself was very impressed with the overall workmanship and quality. Especially for under $1700. The back is koa and the neck is maple and koa. I have the CB2 UGB in it and it really has that 78-79 wolf tone throught my rig ( 67 Dual Showman to a McIntosh mc2100 to 2 JBL E120s). I have heard alot of negative reviews in regard to Carvin electronics but I have to say that the Carvin single coils that came with it sounded real nice. It gets

all kinds of positive comments when playing out. I will probably spring for Waldo's buffer soon. Always searching for the sound.

Carvin makes very nice instruments. They have been one of the most underrated manufactures in this industry and it is unfair. Lots of other companies have tons of hype but do not walk the walk; Carvin has quietly walk a path of good quality at a more then affordable price point.
If I did not have the funds for a personal custom build by a luthier such as myself or Matt Moriarty, I would not hesitate to spend my money with Carvin, you receive value greater then its price!, no doubt!

Best,
Tom

I'm saving up my money to order a Carvin with what appears to be pretty much the exact same specs. Do you mind posting the specs/options that you chose for yours. If it plays half as well as it looks, you are good to go!

Now you just need to spend $10 more to get these:
