NGD: SCB7 Moss Green Black Limba

Postby ferret » Sat Jun 06, 2015 2:21 pm

Picked up an SCB7 from Carvin's Guitars-in-stock. I'm a bit under the weather so will get more pictures later, this is pretty accurate :)

Image

TMG - Translucent Moss Green
BST - Blackburst Edges
LMB - Maple Neck/Black Limba Body
BC - Black Hardware
ABD - Abalone Dot Inlays
EFB - Ebony Fingerboard Black (No Streaking)
STF - Stainless Med-Jumbo Frets .048" H .103" W
5ML - 5-Piece Maple Neck w/ 2 Black Limba Stripes
DSLS - Drop Shadow Silver Logo

Plays good. Very tiny minor finish flaw that I'll photograph later but not worth sending back, just nit picky. Moss green on black limba looks really nice. Came in the Ultimate Soft case, which I like, though it's a lot bigger and bulky than the Vader soft case (Which I guess is to be expected).

Bought this sort of knee jerk, so I don't have the string gauges I want on it yet. Plays good but the stock string is pretty flubby on the low B.

Yay! I have a 7 again!

Yeah, that thing is rad. relatively simple set of options. Yet, it's one of my favorite SCBs ever!

Cool ferret! Congrats!

Ok so decided to take some photos today after all. Man, already got my finger smudges all over it.

These two show the minor finish flaw I mentioned. The very edge corners of the neck and fretboard somehow avoided getting any coloring. From what I can tell this is under the clear coat:
