Bolt Plus Crimson on Walnut Outdoor Pics

Postby Coda » Sun Mar 16, 2014 9:15 am

I got this December 24 and then sent it back to get the headstock painted to match the body. Today's the first day there's no snow on the ground since I got it back, so I took some sunny morning photos. The walnut is very dimensional, and in the sunlight the character shifts when the sun hits from different angles. Although it's a relatively 'plain' build, I love the look, quality and especially the range of tones. I can't say enough good things about the Bolt+ model... You NEED one of these! :D Specs are in my NGD post.

I'm not a huge fan of red, but that looks really really nice. 8)

GAAWWWW!!! I love your bolt Bro!!! The color and wood choice is so amazing together. I can't believe you have no snow left. My snow banks are still taller than my car!

I'm glad for the happy reunion with that classy bolt and I'm dying to hear how she sounds.

Happy NGD x2

Cheers,
:mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

The crimson-on-walnut scheme makes the guitar look a bit like it was dipped in blood--in a good way. Very "goth."

That is an awesome Bolt Plus Plus Plus :applause: :applause: :applause:

The Crimson Red on Walnut is absolutely stunning. The matching headstock made it complete.

Congrats :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Thanks everyone! I'm so glad how this guitar came out that I just want everyone to see it. I appreciate all the feedback and clappy/smilie emoticons. That's how I feel when I'm playing her. :D

Casual Madman, yeah, I thought of 'blood red' a lot when I got it, and since this is the first time I saw it in full sunlight, the thought came back to me. Either that or candy apple red, and since I'd rather be thought of as a hard rocker I'm going to stick with blood red if anyone asks.

Bredo, Bolt Plus Plus Plus? :laughhard: :laughhard: :laughhard: Awesome!

Dejabluguitar - I think one of the first Bolt+'s that caught my attention was your blue machine. Yours & mine are 2nd cousins at least, with the ebony no-inlay board & reverse 3x3 headstock.

Geddy - wassup with 5' of snow remaining? I know you're north, but is that normal? :think: Hang in there, brother, there's warmer days ahead!

Mbardu - yes, you caught my unintentional photobomb of my own guitar shoot. Between trying to control the mirror-like Carvin gloss finish reflections and keeping my shadow off the guitar, I forgot that those knobs are like little parabolic mirrors. And Casual Madman, good eye finding my little selfies on the tuning posts. I guess that's another advantage to the new Carvin tuners - my Sperzel tuners don't have shiny posts! (Wasn't there a thread a year or two back where people posted selfies reflected in their guitars?...) I guess I should have planned ahead and been wearing my Carvin spirit wear for the occasion...

Blkjakk - I'll bet your truck looks awesome in this color. I've always thought that auto finishes look great on guitars and vice versa. (Though I don't think I'd want a walnut car. 8) )
