NGD: CT624M DTS Blue - 1 piece hog back - photos

Postby Coda » Fri Sep 07, 2012 12:16 pm

This is my first Carvin, and I'm pretty darn excited about it. I'll keep the chatter to a minimum!

CT624M
1-piece body
TUNG OIL FINISH BACK OF NECK
FLAMED MAPLE FINGERBOARD
ABALONE DOT INLAYS
STAINLESS STEEL JUMBO FRET
PICKUP COLOR CRM/BLACK W BLACK
ELIXER 9-42 STRINGS
IVORY GRAPH TECH TUSQ NUT
ABALONE Carvin LOGO
CREAM TRUSS ROD COVER (it came with black - cream cover is on the way)
GOLD PLATED HARDWARE
GUITAR CASE VINTAGE TWEED CASE

Image
The one-piece back has a warm, almost 3-D sheen to it. Tung oil neck is a joy!
Image
The DTS blue really pops in the sun; it is more teal-blue indoors.
Image
There is some great swirl in the mahogany on the sides and neck. You can get a good sense of how thick the flame maple top is where the body meets the neck. Loving that natural binding effect! Awesome job masking the stain and overall fit and finish.
Image
Another great example of the level of detail... you can see a pinstripe of natural binding all around the maple cap on the headstock.
Image
The bridge is awesome - smooth and low. Resting your hand on it, it's the most comfortable I've ever owned or played.
Image
Stainless Jumbos - very slippery in the best of ways, perfectly dressed. (I'm not used to frets this big, but I thought it'd be fun to try.)

So many great NGD's today.

This one is no exception. Congrats!

Nice photos also. I wish I knew more about photography so I could get some nice pics of mine like that.

Sweet stuff. Thanks for posting!

I love the way their blue looks with a maple fretboard. The level of detail on that guitar is insane. Congrats, she's a beauty!

Perfect guitar, coda! I love the contrast between the clear quilt BBE and the mahogany. I like the abalone dots too - the blues get highlighted by the body.

That blue just calls out to me. With the birseye contrasting the blue, and the cream coil it's perfect! Beautiful! :drool:

I truly appreciate all of your well-wishes! All the support in the waiting room made the seven+ week wait much more fun.

Now I need to heed the advice of Mr. F. Zappa who said, "Shut up and play yer guitar."
