PostForum: Contemporary Carvin Guitars   Posted: Fri Jan 12, 2018 6:35 pm   Subject: re: What happened to "Carvin."
I have my 1984 LB-40 bass, 1986 DC-125, and I just bought a 1981 DC-100. I am set. It is sad to see Carvin go away. They have been my guitar and amp company since 1978. I have no interest in the ...

PostForum: Contemporary Carvin Guitars   Posted: Sat Oct 14, 2017 10:57 am   Subject: re: End of the M22
I just got in an M22V to put back with my M22N, and 3 M22SDs. I mistakenly ordered it without a bezel since I have an old 4 screw bezel on hand. I then discovered they drill out the mounting holes ...

It looks like the M series pickups are going to be DC'ed. I just ordered an M22V, my favorite all time pickup, in black/cream. I have three M22SDs hanging around. The M22V is likely my last purcha ...

I have spent more $$ with Carvin over the last 40 years than all other music companies combined. I am not selling any amps or PA. They still work fine. I am sad. The end of an era.

My 1984 LB 40 has a SPDT switch for dual-single coil split that I don't use. I was thinking I might use it to switch between the stock .047 mf cap and another cap value. Just curious to know if anyo ...

My 1986 DC 125 got an Imron paint job, as I assume all Carvin guitars of that era did. It is one tough paint and has held up wonderfully. Not an easy guitar to relic....... without a hammer......

I have an M22SD from 1982. It is VERY mid-heavy compared to my 1986 and later ones.

Glad you like the C22B . I did not bond with the C22B and continue to love the M22SD. We are both happy!

The DC-125 is gone. It is available as an option 50 DC-127. When I ordered my DC-125 in 1986 I "optioned 50" an added neck humbucker.

I have not tried that but it's a good idea. I have a ToneStyler tone pot in my Carvin that slices off treble if I want.

You can buy fret board radius gauges at Stew Mac or make them out of cardboard with a protractor. (If you REALLY want to know Very Happy )

Carvin is really forging ahead on designs. I am a low bling guy and prefer the 80s styles but I certainly appreciate the innovation. (What Guitardan said.)

Looks like you were right, alnico. I opened up the amp, cleaned the pots, now its back to normal.

Great! Rock On!

Sometimes a dirty volume pot will cause the problem. Just a thought.

I checked my 1985 catalog and I did not remember correctly. It states that when ordering the M22 PU one should state whether it goes in the bridge or neck position as they are wound differently.

I think I'm going with a Peavey stand from a local music store. The amp sits right over the center of gravity of the stand. It is fine on the lowest setting and holds my X60, Deluxe Reverb and Ultra ...
