I saw these 2 images on the Guitars of the Day post and new immediately it was my guitar. The pickup routing, the streaky ebony fretboard (subtle but visible in picture 1):

Image

Image

Then I saw this picture with the black sides finished and was positive:

Image

Finally the completed guitar went up:

Image

Got my "Your guitar has shipped" email later that day. Was so jazzed it took three days after arrival before I noticed the center pickup was black, not cream as ordered. But Carvinista Mike Jones noted my post about this and sent the correct (reverse-wound cream) AP11, which is now installed:

It was almost like a treasure hunt, checking Carvin's FB feed daily to see if I could spot my girl.

I'm not on Facebook, and this pic was posted on this site just a few days after I actually received mine which more than likely means that I would've seen it before I received it if I were.

And here's the finished product I call "Jane".

This one was posted on FB on 11/8. Anxiously awaiting its arrival so I can go to work on it and have an awesome guitar.

Sweet bass Catman, and Dvl, that ones going to be great.
I don't do face book either but found you can get on the front page without being a member and see some of the pic's of the day, saw a SH60 this morning but I know it's got to be too sone to be mine, who's ever it is if they are getting a clear or trans finish it gas a nice Maple top that is far from plain!
God bless, Pastor Dave

+1 I am growing insanely fond of spalted tops. Let em rephrase that, I am growing insanely fond of Cavin spalted tops. The last 10 or so that I've seen posted hear are simply out of this world gorgeous.

Congrats on that killer bass, a perfect 10. wow.

Cheers,

Thank you very much "PastorDave" and "Geddy". If you like the top you should see the backside in the Koa Club. I didn't ask for any special piece of koa like that for the body, I was just lucky enough that they graced me with a flamed piece(s) like that.

What do you mean the back is really :drool: :drool: :drool: nice? I don't know :drool: :drool: :drool: what you mean. I just have this problem :drool: :drool: :drool: that spontaneously happens without reason. :drool: :drool: :drool: See!

A huge victory and celebration is in order here.

Hey "Casual Madman", sounds like fun. PM me and hopefully we'll be able to iron out the details.

GNP, it is in the "backsides" area just before your walnut beauty!

Thank you very much again "Pastor Dave" and "Geddy".

Thanks Coda.
No, nothing beats holding them. But the sneak peek doesn't exactly ease the waiting. I was going into overdrive when I spotted mine among the "in production pics" :mrgreen:

But then again, it was worth the wait. Big applause for Carvin :applause: :applause: :applause:

Can't say for sure, at first I thought it was way to early but now that it shipped already this may be a sneak peek of my SH60!
