I'm not buying one, but it's fun to play the game, so here's what I would order if I was going to: Cool

Jet black
Chrome hardware
Ebony fretboard
Diamond MOP inlays
M22N/M22SD
Stainless steel frets
Icon headstock (if they'd let me)
Tung oiled neck

Yeah, that'd do it... Smile

Bah, now I'm thinking about it...

My wife says she's buying me one and she vetoed the DST option---can't have two DragonBundys in the house! I totally agree with the alternate color she's picked out. Wink However, I am quite eager to see how Kevio's V220 turns out!

I'm not going "retro" with the new build. Based on the options of the other nine Carvins in my house, this V220 will have the best of all of 'em. These decisions are based on countless hours of intense stage and studio "testing". Mr. Green

for a while I had thought about trying to make the V220 tht I order good for classic rock.

Then i realized that would just be WRONG. Here's what it will be, if it gets ordered:

Standard maple/alder body
Ebony Fretboard
SS Jumbo Frets
MOP Block Inlays
V-style headstock (i'm not down with the pointy headstock. I would probably bash it into everything)
Clear/faded blue finish on flamed maple with a blueburst edge
M22SD and M22N pickups
M-bridge.

OOOOOOH YEAH

I think checking out pics of all these new V220s will be almost as fun as receiving my own. I mean, we're talking about today's current finish options and not the clear/red/black/white/pink(?!) we usually see. Cool

Agreed! I doubt I'll order one, but I'm genuinely excited about this. I can't wait to see pics from all you guys who are about to make orders!

I'm getting the Ultra V all reverse-style:



And I'm thinking of getting it done to match my DC125, all maple, abalone dots, black hardware. Hmm.

I will try to not call Carvin until next week, but I will be ordering a Ultra V ( I would order a V 220 but I would prefer The X 220!) All mahogany, Tung oil neck, STJF, can't decide on quilt or Flame. If its Flame it might be blue with BC hardware. If its quilt it just might be DTS sunsetburst with Gold hardware. I Can't Friggin Wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yeah!

Think Alder? Or go with maple as in the original?
Think C22B & C22J or retro-ish with the M22SD & M22V or N?
Think To trem or not to trem?
Think Where am I going to get the money? Shocked
Other than the diamond inlays, I got what you are looking for. Very Happy

Yeah, yeah, rub it in. Rain

Thx Bundy. You da Man. Mr. Green Mr. Green Mr. Green

Now to compare.

I think the reverse headstock looks a bit awkward on that one. Not that it would be awkward to tune or anything. The regular pointy just looks like it flows better with that design.

Like my '86 here?




Maybe with swamp ash sides and maple/walnut through-neck. I want them to use the black phenolic that they put between the top and back of the icons, but use it to visually seperate the ash sides from the maple in the neck. I suggested that a couple times around Carvin. The responses I got, including from the guy who runs the woodshop, was blank looks and "yeah, of course we can do that." But I've never seen one done. And it certainly hasn't apeared on any option list. I think it's just a matter of someone requesting it. Anyway, clear matte satin finish, black hardware, and SOAPBARS. Ebony board with no inlays. Maybe one knob and no other controls, like the TBS4.

Yeah, it's what keeps you gee-tar pluckin' yo-yo's somewhere close to on time. It ties the beat together with the notes. It drives the band. Without "that BOOM BOOM BOOM," your "tweedely tweedly dee" sounds anemic.

Edited to fix picture links.

the only thing i feel with a certainty is that they just don't look right without the black painted headstock. if only carvin would get a MOP headstock inlay. I'd be all over it.

Yup, but with FIVE strings.
ALL mahogany body,
3-piece all mahogany neck (maybe with 2 maple stripes),
black pickups,
black hardware,
clear finish on everything (especially the neck),
and then I put a flamed paint job over the clear and re-clear it,
and, well, we can dream and lust after things can't we....... Think

I'm pretty sure I'm gonna be all over it, whenever I'm able to come up with the cash. I'm still a little tentative on the options, but here's what I'm thinking:

V220 -
SS medium jumbos
Floyd with locknut
Whatever radius matches the Floyd (12" ?)
Abalone block inlays
Ruby red stain on quilt
Matching quilt headstock
Standard "V" headstock
C22B and C22J
Might go with actives, just to change the control layout
Black hardware
Straplocks
Sperzels

Did I forget anything? Yeah!

This could be my first Carvin without non-returnable options. Mr. Green

YYYYYYYYYEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am SO in on this! Ultra V first, then the V220! Mr. Green Applause Yeah! Guitar Rock On! Just got my tax forms in the mail. With any luck I'll be filing within a week, 2 at the most, so when my refund gets back to me I'll be able to hit the balance on the build and then some! Good Lord, that's sweet! Shocked Drool Drool Drool

Chalz might as well let the news slip about the HSS BP/C66 offerings too.

Well, I can dream can't I?

Dang, now y'all got me wanting a V220!
