TriAxis, she is beautiful, very very beautiful indeed. Welcome to the club.

Is there a thin black layer between the swamp ash top and body wood? I remember one forum member did a guitar very similar to your and he had a layer of "blackwood" between the top and body wood, a very nice "pin stripe" detail.

Cheers,
:mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Yes there is a thin black laminate between the top and body.

Just like what xjbebob did with his.

And thanks I am very happy with it as well.

It's the same black wood fiber laminate layer that's in the Icon, right?

I always thought it would be interesting to use them between a neck-through and body wings (without a top), or between a maple fretboard and a maple neck. :think:

No idea Spud. I just know it was in xjbebop's original, so I asked for the same thing. Maybe he knows. Or one of our factory spies can tell us.

I agree that would be really nice. I love that pin stripe detail for certain effects. Picture this: a flamed 5 piece maple neck with the black fiber laminate between the 5 pieces ... and that on a neck through as well.

Welcome to the club Gmiller, she's a beauty as I said before, the color is so perfect on that spalt, lucky guy!

Cheers,

I honestly have no clue what the color is. The guitar is adopted from your local ebay adoption agency. I believe it is a honey burst. The ebay pictures looked red but definitely not a cherry burst. I knew I had to have it when I looked at the other pictures on the listing. Sure is a beauty, not a single scratch or ding anywhere. Original owner took really good care of it. Plays like a dream and sounds perfect.

Absolutely. That would also open the door to having the synth access added as well, and I know I would go for that in a heart beat (and having the funds to do so :mrgreen: )

But after a long session 4+ hours, my back, shoulder and neck are all barking pretty good. Insuring the guitar is under 8 lbs if not 7lbs would be great.

Cheers,

I thought the CS was chambered. Mine only weighs in at 7lbs 15 oz. I have a light weight version I guess. Well balanced too.

I think the CS come in between 7.5 - 8.5 lbs on average, but I don't think the CS or CT are chambered at all. It does have two cavities for the pots and switches (on a CS), and just one for the CT.

Correct: no chambering. I would have paid for the option, though!

I wish they came in at that weight. I had a CS4 that was 10ish-11. My current CS4S is exactly 9lbs and I paid an upcharge to sort for light wood.

Got a response back from my sales person that Carvin will do a chambered CS for a $500 upcharge. Ouch....but still good to know.

Marcel...beautiful guitar :applause:

I just bought this off the GIS from Steve. Should be here early next week - I live on the east coast :wall:

Thick neck profile, Jumbo SS frets. Only change I will make is to drop some covered humbuckers in her. Not sure how you guys missed this one. Your loss = my gain :D
