the carvin site shows the v220 with a hardtail.


I was told it was available only as a string-through-the-body. I was after retrofitting a Kahler as well, but don't want the holes in the back.

White/white -- Oooooh! OLDe Schoole but Verily Coole!

At 17 I was playing either a B3 or a pipe organ -- mostly classical and pop, and just getting into rock and roll, fast cars and fast wimmen. Okay, so the fast wimmen really didn't happen till later (I was a late starter). But in all cases, I made up for lost time in a big way.

Collected guitars for years, really didn't play them much until the last couple of years. Making up for lost time in a big way right now <G>. Maybe too big, in fact -- four amps and five guitars in a seven month period might be a bit overboard, especially if I've got designs on yet more. Shocked
