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.


I think it looks like THE GREATEST GUITAR IN ALL THE HEAVENS AND EARTH!!!!

This may sound funny but I cant wait to get a catalog with them in it.Dont know why,guess its just a kid thing of back in the mid 80s when I didnt even have a guitar,Id sit and stare at the V220.Gonna be so cool to have it back in the books!!!!!

Here's my matching pair (...of guitars... I hope for both...if not the V is first)

Natural gloss finish ( on body )
Black Walnut body sides
5 piece maple neck w walnut stripes
Black Hardware
Gold Logo
Black REVERSE Headstock ( black should be standard on the V's IMFUO)
F...ffff.......ffff.........FLOYD ROSE.........(whispers kahlerkahlerkahler)
Strap Locks
M22SD and M22N ( an AP11R in the neck would be cool if we get to get freaky with them)
Splitters and phase switch
Tung oiled neck
Maple fret board no inlays

DAMN thats gonna be pretty!Wish Carvin had a CG build your guitar preview photoshop thingy.What,you never heard of that?

AND HEY WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK OF THIS?

You know how the Fatboy has the two strap buttons at the end?What if they could do that for the V220 ( wouldnt work on the Ultra V ) to protect the finish on the ends?Im the worlds worst at just propping my guitar up and the points of my pointies are bare.Something to think about I guess..

I think it's high time Bundy got a natural finished guitar. Either clear on Flamed Maple, Mahogany, or Walnut. Enough of those damn wimpy colors, you need a brown guitar.

That's a great pic with the red and black theme in the hair, clothes, lips, nails, and bass. Yeah!

Me too. Mr. Green (I think most of the people here who played guitar in the eighties, or wanted to, did the same thing.)

Will Carvin do the standard inline headstock?




Y'know, the V head looks more "classic", but I'm liking the in line - its growing on me. A modern update.
I already have an '80s V220 (among 12 Carvins), and I havent been waiting for a V re-issue, .. then why do I get a twinge of GAS over this?!?
Shocked Confused Embarassed
I guess I'll sit back and be tortured for a while as I see what you guys order, and how they all turn out. Mr. Green

I think the Ultra V head would look cool on the V220 especially reversed.If I get them both I would like for them to have the same headstock.

I made that Photoshop pic because if Carvin will allow, I'm going for the current inline headstock.


There's a thread started by Murf in Off-Topic where I threw a bunch of different headstocks on a reverse Ultra V. Crazy stuff!

You know, I could honestly say I never wanted a V ... until Bundy posted the photoshop with the standard inline headstock. Geez, I haven't even received the Fatboy yet and I'm dreaming again. GAS sucks.

This is some exciting news! I almost bought a beat up UltraV a few years ago from a board member, but it required way too much work to get it up to a playable condition. Now, I'm actually leaning more towards the V220. I don't have any trem guitars anymore, but would probably get the Floyd to make it different from any of my other guitars. I'm thinking simple elegance. I have enough fancy finishes that I may just go with a more plain look. What's a guy to do???? 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

I DID forget something:

ALL Mahogany, neck and body
Tung Oil on back of the neck

I'm considering all mahogany now instead of maple neck/mahog sides... Think

I don't want a big-bodied mahogany guitar to be too deep, but I think the Floyd might brighten it up some.

Will a 14" radius match the Floyd?

I thought someone said a while back that the Floyd has a 12" radius, but looking at StewMac it says it's a 14". I assume it's the same model that Carvin uses.

The Original Floyd that Carvin uses is a 10" Radius.

The Stew Mac Schaller Floyd is a 14" Radius.

I thought of the weight as well, Gary. I ain't skeered! Mr. Green I'm just addicted to the tone of my mahog CT6M and C66 and figure a V220 might really send me off the *deep* end.

I was chuckling when I saw the orange thread as that's what the wife suggested for a color for my V220.

I love the tone of my mahagony/maple topped guitars, but I think this should sound different than the others. So, I've got to think of how to get it orange with the standard woods.

It is called Custom Color. Call and ask Carvin They may already have an Orange.
Nightrain Mr. Green Mr. Green Mr. Green


I didnt know they did custom colors.That just makes the field even bigger.I love green.I have an SG I painted.( when asked why I say SG stands for sh*t green ).If they could do a green gold to match my SG that would be the best.And Id save money on all that high end top wood too!

I'm wondering what they're actually going to use for stock pickups for the reissues. M22SD & M22N/T/V? I'm also wondering if they'll do an Alder body/Mahogany neck. I know, I know, I'll call and ask. Laughing I just don't care for the 5-piece Mahogany & Maple stripe necks. I'd rather have an all-Mahogany neck. Tonally speaking I think that neck would match off better with the M22SD on an Ultra V given the relatively small Alder body and a Through-Body neck design. Here's what I'm thinking for a build so far:

Ultra V

Alder Body/Mahogany neck
Tung Oil neck
M22SD & M?
TOM bridge
Stop Tailpiece?
Jumbo SS frets
MOP Diamond inlays
Strap Locks
Ebony Fretboard
ETR
Color ? 80's retro?

Any thoughts/comments/suggestions?
