Double NGD!! Lots of pics....

Postby rzbk777 » Fri May 29, 2015 3:53 pm

I got my first two Carvins, a JB24 a little over 2 weeks ago and a V220M yesterday. Both are dream guitars for me, I've loved Jason's Numbers guitar since seeing it in guitar magazines as a teenager and I've been drooling over V220's since I received my first Carvin catalog years ago. I am very happy with both! :D

Specs for the V220 are in this thread.

On to the pics, I tried to get different lighting for the Nightburst finish.

The V220 is gorgeous--but I'm a sucker for the Numbers model, even though they all look more-or-less alike. There's something so childlike about them--which some use as a criticism, but I find wonderful and refreshing.

Both guitars are great! I really like the grain on the Numbers and that beveled/chamfered edge on the back is very cool; haven't seen that before. Nice feature. Love the symmetrical headstock on the 220! Bet it kills with the Kiesel pickups.

Nice pair Bro, ... of guitars. I love the headstock choice on the V220, perfect! Beautiful top and finish and the grain on the numbers guitar is so awesome. There is a lot of wonderful shaping on the numbers that I wasn't aware of; that must be one very comfortable guitar.

Cheers,

Couldn't agree more, if seeing a JB24 doesn't raise a smile then there has to be something wrong with you (IMHO).

Anyhow a very nice brace you have there, I'm beginning to think that these are like Pringles once you pop you can't stop.

Thanks again everyone, I really like this forum and now I'm hooked on Carvins! Both were even better than I expected and my expectations were high. :)

Congrats on the new arrivals! I, too, drooled over those pictures in the catalogs during the 80's and swore someday I would have a pink V220, haha. I like what was said above about the numbers guitar bringing a smile. That's what it is I like about them as well. Happy guitar! I had to cancel my JB24 order for the time being, unfortunately. Someday......when it's time.
