Carvin DN612 KOA Doubleneck

Postby Wheels_detroit » Wed Jun 12, 2019 9:26 am

Here is a new Carvin for your viewing. My recently purchased Carvin DN612 Koa Doubleneck. This came up on Reverb and I purchased it immediately. This is my lifetime dream guitar. The place I purchased from dates it as 1983, but the serial number indicates 84-87. Hard to tell exactly which year. The six string side has the Kahler Pro Trem, which I have never personally seen on a Carvin Doubleneck.

This is from the Reverb Listing description: "A spectacular and Rare Carvin DN612 super sexy double neck in Rare Natural finish! This beauty, made by the masters at Carvin is a heavy duty jam machine! This dream machine has an unmistakable sound with everything a boundless player is looking for! This guitar has been treated right and kept safely in the case! This guitar was collector owned and it shows! No major dings or scratches to speak of! Just a few very minor fishish marks. Only played a handful of times. This Custom Is all original and unmodified. Includes original Hard case. These are getting almost impossible to find especially in this condition. Plays perfect and sounds really good!"

I think Doc Turn just dug himself a 6' hole in the ground, jumped in, and rolled over. :lol:

So a question for you all...One of the things I have been having trouble finding is the off-white plastic switch tips for the numerous small switches on this double neck. Any suggestions?

7 tiny mini-switches: These don't have plastic tips. They came standard as all metal from Carvin.
