After 11 years and nearly 3500 posts, I am bidding this site adieu. I am as guilty as the next for rarely visiting the Carvin Museum forums, but in its hey day it was a hopping place. Sadly, that changed in 2008 when it was shut down over some personal crap between couple of members. Sad to say, by time it restarted after several months, the interest and membership were pretty much gone. Many of the topics haven't had a comment in three or four or five months .... or, in some cases, years.

It was fun while it lasted.

That's all pretty much true. The only forum that gets any traction at all over here is the For Sale/Wanted To Buy section.

I don't have any use for the Kiesel/Carvin BBS anymore. I guess I'm just not one who thinks "Jeff is a cool guy", and I have zero interest in buying anything new from them, so there's little to talk about there, either.

Take care.

But, but, but ... you have way too much free time. It says so in your avatar. Wink Razz
Seriously, why "go"? Just pop in and check in every once in a while. We'll be here. Smile (Yeah, I know, not too much traffic. At least, as mentioned, we get to check out something for sale every once in a while.)

Also - I'm not anti-Jeff, I kinda see his online marketing scheme, but I'm not a "Jeff is god" kinda guy either. As long as they make Carved Tops (22 fretters, please), I'll still be a customer. The newer stuff doesn't wow me as much - so be it.

I think you're right. Sadly.

I pretty much despise Jeff. I am a "Carvin" fan, not a "Keisel" fan. I don't want a "Keisel". No offense to the name but it's just not a good name to put on a guitar. Neither is my name, BTW. They finally bring back the X-220 and I get all excited but... they refuse to put "Carvin" in it - it has to say "Keisel" Evil

Anyway, I'm looking at other brands. Might try a PRS one day.

My sentiments as well. Nothing wrong with leaving the account active, even if you rarely visit.

I think the Facebook pages have a lot of forums fading away on the account that it's so convenient.

I still like the CM when I need more relevant information and of course the For Sale forum still has the best deals when you are looking for something new or need to sell.

Peace and hope to see U out there in cyber land.

It appears this all is about to be moot, as this entire forum is likely going away.

We had a good run. Well, for a while, anyway. Applause

It could've been worse.

I could have gone the way of the rest of the internet and said "mute". (And "could of"). Tongue Spin
