It got removed, at my request. You will understand why, when it gets unveiled. There is something about it that requires explanation, so no rumors get started.

I gotta say, after talking to Manny last night, what a great guy. I 'liked' Carvin on FB a couple years ago, but it was a pretty boring site. When he started posting customer guitars, I started checking in once in a while, but not too often. When he started posting pics of the day, now I go to their page every single day, lol. What a great service to provide. He's really done a lot to elevate their exposure.

Mike Jones, Manny Huerta, Flock, and Jeff Kiesel are just a few of the folks in this company, but what a huge impact they have had on improving the customer experience! I really liked Carvin before this, but seriously, I get such a feeling of involvement from these guys. They really make you feel like you are part of the process, rather than just numbers on a credit card, know what I mean? Even the sales guys. They talk to you from the position of 'fans' of guitars, and when you call, and order a great build, you can actually hear them sharing in your excitement. I hope they all realize how lucky they are, to be part of such a unique company. Thanks guys!

No, I didn't accidentally see a pic. I took the pics. (I cheated. I worked at Carvin at the time.)

Well, I can't post the pic because I'm at work and can't access Facebook...but the Ultra V I saw a few weeks ago is now one of the Guitar of the Day pics today and it also looks to be mine as the scheduled completion date is tomorrow.

I am not going to lie, I'm kinda disappointed if this one is indeed mine. Will wait to see what it looks like in person and how it plays before I decide whether I want a rebuild or if I will keep it.

Okay, so Mike decided to tease me a bit, but then someone ruined it for him and posted in on the FB page - Here's Azrael, my in-transit SCB6:

Ghack! No posts in this thread for over a year! There's been sooo many awesome sneak peek photos in the past year that I'll bet many more of you are now 'members' of the club. Have at it!

I'll give this thread a little kick in the @$$ with a sneak peak of my Pearl Blue/Natural back "Vader Run" promo guitar, shown here lined up to be signed by Jeff. :D :D :D

Update: NGD pic!

I'm sorry Coda. I didn't mean to neglect this thread. My X64 appeared in Carvins Facebook before it was received way back in October 2014:

And here it is at home:
