AE185 Club

Postby ElfDude » Wed Oct 22, 2008 5:58 am

It's well known in this forum that I love these guitars. I'd love to see all the ones people here own. Please show 'em off!
I'll start with mine. A 2002 model in pearl white (which makes it a challenge to photograph). My first Carvin purchase, apart from an M22 pickup.
The wait was agonizing! (click on image to see it full-sized)

Here's mine! 8) I recieved it back in March '08 and I think it was the first AE185 with S22's. I still cannot forsee me ever getting bored of that guitar. I'm definately happy that I chose it for my first actual Carvin (other guitars I have are made with NT kit necks).

Love these things!

Is mine the only one with an opaque finish? :lol:
Sometimes I regret that choice, but not nearly as much since pearl white was discontinued.

I didn't realize your's was Pearl White. I can tell from some of the pics that it does have a pearlescent look to it... Very cool! 8) I bet that looks cool under stage lights. So what kind of wood ya got under the finish? I cannot remember if you posted that before.

Pfsh...is your guitar neck-through? Does it have 24 frets? No, and No. Didn't think so. Move-along, synth-boy!

Well... I may have ordered a synth guitar, but I have 15 or so non-synths, at least 5 or 6 of which are 24 fret and neckthrough. ;) :P

Here is my beauty put in the mix here.
I really love this guitar - If it came to selling all of mine and keeping one.
I would most likely keep the AE185
