supersweet. Enjoy it. FWIW I raised the action on mine first thing but that is a personal thingy. I strung it with 11s as well and reset intonation it for higher action and heavier strings, then after about 2 years switched to 10s which i have kept at 10s. I think it came with tens, cannot remember.
Love it! i was waiting to see how the inline headstock and the chrome tuners would look with the abalone and it is perfect. nice color choice too! I filled my taxes and am just waiting for the green light from the govt before placing my order

Hey now... great news and great looking guitar. I hate to say I told you so... but I did (smiling). Look back on previous posts- I said give the Carvin PUPs a try before you write them off. They are GOOD. Yes? Glad you did give them a chance. Enjoy- its a beaut!
yes, listen to brutusbuck, he has schooled me (in a kind way) for the better on the Gdec too! I still use two of his patches religiously. I knew a pretty lookin' carvin would bring him from the depths of RUKIND lurking/surfing into a thread again.... Good to see you brother! Young Striker has him a killer axe worthy of big stage playing. It is a good day for all, peace, JB

When I ordered mine in about late 2002 (time ?) I gave them an example. Twas a photograph from one of their catalogs, for example. I wanted a dark green and I got it like i wanted, just like the picture.
