Would this be the first one received on the boards with AAT?

I think there is a moss green SCB7 with an AAT Ash Top supposed to be delivered on Tuesday.

Due to the UPS tracking info, mine will be delivered on Friday.
UPS tracking info is usually correct, so it will at least be the AAT Ash Top nr 2.

But it will be the first 6-string :mrgreen:

Thanks. I think so too :drool:

And the excitement is even higher this time, as I have not seen it on the "in progress" pics on facebook.
But only a few days away now :mrgreen:

Appollyon has beat me to it, with his SCB7 Moss Green w/ AAT Ash Top. A NGD thread somewhere in the forum.

Mine will be here at Friday :mrgreen:

Just saw your other posts. :( bummer dude.

I think you should still post pics of what you did receive. Two reasons.

1. sometimes it takes a public kick in the pants for a company to get their act together and improve their performance...and a thread with pics will get more views.

2. I'm sure it's still a beautiful guitar, and I think it still deserves a NGD for this that would love to see pics of the rest of the options you've selected :D

I believe he ordered "AAT" for the top but did not get it. I'm sure he'll correct me if I'm wrong.

I love it! Other than the mistake I'd say its a keeper! Is that a 1 piece Ash top? Some really nice grain there!
Happy NGD!!! :applause: :applause:
Hope you can make it work out for you!

Edit: I guess I should have read the specks first. :oops:

1-piece Ash - Very Nice.
Everything about the guitar is great, except.............the missing AAT :shock:

If this wasn't a part 1 guitar of a set of two, it is absolutely a keeper.

This was supposed to be a Brother/Sister Theme.
The Brother (this one) in TPB on AAT, the Sister (next) in Crimson Red on AAT.

If I keep this one, I would have to start my two guitar Project from the start (and now the TPB are "taken").

Any suggestion for a "Brother" color to his Crimson Red "Sister"?

PS. I should at least get a refund for the AAT, which are paid for. Some more info/thoughts here:

I think I would really hate to piss you off. You are so calm about this. I realize it really does no good to freak out but I would not want to be in the path of your released disappointment this mistake has to have caused :( :wall:

It is beautiful but I would return it for what you obviously wanted...

There are a lot of times that people do an NGD, and are hugely disappointed over some really trivial things.

This is not one of those times. Missing the AAT is HUGE. Mistakes happen, and Carvin has been slammed lately, but that doesn't change anything.

Yes, it's a beautiful guitar. Yes, you are a wonderful, kind hearted person. And yes, you should get the guitar you ordered. You should do the rebuild, bro. Give them the opportunity to make it right.

Honestly, I'm very curious what Carvin says about a "glitch" like this. Not a minor one either :? :shock:

I may keep this one*, postpone parts of my plan, and find me a new color to match the Crimson Red AAT Ash Top that's on the drawing board.

I wonder what they have to offer, besides the obvious one, refund for the paid AAT.

*This DC127M is drop dead gorgeous (but not as planned in my Brother/Sister Theme), and it has the playability of most Carvins (on top of the top shelf ;-)).
The sounds were surprisely good (it made me smile). Due to the Ash body, Ash top and the M22T/M22V combo (both split/non-split), it felt snappy, with overtones/harmonics in spades.

A one of a kind sounding Carvin, which is the most important after all.
It would almost be a crime to send it back, and it will probably haunt me forever ;-)

What kind of refund or offer would you ask for, or accept?

Thanks for kind words :oops: :wink: :D

I'll guess they are coming back at me later today, so we'll see what happens.

PS. We are 9 hours earlier than San Diego time here in Norway, so we will see when and what :wink:

I'd be happy if they paid the return costs and did a complimentary rush on the rebuild...

But if you can look past the Antique Ash issue, it truly is a beautiful guitar, so I understand your conflict. Why not just play the heck out of it for 50 years and make your own antique treatment? :D

Let's see what this day and evening will bring. I'll let you know as soon as I have been in contact with Carvin.
Either way, it's just a guitar. No no no, it's a Carvin :mrgreen:
