Did Vinnie Vincent endorse Carvin?

I saw a video today where he joined a band onstage for a couple KISS songs - full Ankh Warrior Makeup even - and he had his trademark double-pointy V guitar, which is pretty cool. I remembered it as being a Jackson. It was a Jackson in the beginning but then I saw it was a Carvin at some point during "Invasion." The Carvin looked like it might have been a little beaten up and repaired (around the pointies). I don't believe Carvin ever mass produced a VV model. Did they do a one-off just for him? (or maybe built a few?) There was a shot where I could see the back and there was no neck plate so it is either a set neck or neck thru. Not a simple neck swap.

Just a little curious. He's got a bio coming out next year that will answer all the questions people have been asking - that will be an interesting read. He also promises to be "back" so maybe we'll see him out playing again. Smile

No, they never made a signature model. It was a custom one-off, from what i understand.

It's cool that he still has it and plays it. I wouldn't mind having one like it. Of course, then it wouldn't be as unique.
