Well, I had been thinking of something like this for quite some time now. I wasnt going to even order it until around this time of year to get it by Dec. So this is an early Xmas gift to myself. Twisted

So this is how I spent my whole weekend just about - taking and editing pix. I probably had some near 200 or so, many just didnt come out and got deleted. I tried all kinds of lighting, but I am such a photo hack, and to prove it ...
heres about 6 mins of your life you wont get back. Mr. Green Razz
There are some pics in original form and some with a minor QParts knob update that I think fits this guitar - black chrome w/purple abalone.

Some obligatory sample pics -



















Specs -
CT6M
Quilt top + headstock
3x step deep purple, with trans purple back sides (opt 50, non-returnable)
Chrome hardware
S22B, J
Signature abalone inlays (I like these on this and my moss green CT6C)
Abalone logo
Everything else was standard.
About 6 weeks from order to my door.
Its my 1st Carvin with the "century-series" 6-digit ser# (1xxxxx), not that that means anything.

The extra $100 off on options deal, plus an extra $100 certificate that was going to expire in August pushed me into it now rather than later. Cant argue with that logic.

You may ask, so what does it really look like, as they all show different shades and detail. The answer is almost all of those pix except the brightest due to flash washout (tho many of those are nice too). Its odd sometimes the flash washed it out, and sometimes they were the darker shots??? In normal nighttime room light it can be REAL DEEP (We all came out for Montreaux..., ahem, sorry).
It was really hard to get any decent shots of the colorful abalone. But enjoy the slideshow anyhow. They are the best of the lot that I took. I just about doubled the catalog of pix I had saved out in photobucket with this set.

I wish I could add this to my Verizon web site list of gear, but they removed ftp access - I HATE them!! Evil

Oh yeah, forgot to mention, this is my 20th Carvin (since 1985)!! Well, 19 in my possession, as I sold 1 off back in August, which ALSO helped fund this new purchase at this time.

Mr. Green Yeah, and I used to try to "burn" my own tapes - tune by tune back in the day. Now we have the magic of ripping CDs.
Notice the VCR *IS* unplugged. (My folks were just over and asked about that.) Never used it and it was annoying when the power would go out and I had to reset the clock on it. haha

Thanks!

I think the best you can do is reserve the plot next to mine. Laughing

Y'know - I saw ALOT of slipping around on the "infield" (nice baseball/fottball stadium Rolling Eyes ) - but mostly by the Jets. So much for home field advantage. Extremely POOR tackling, but we mounted comeback - just too late. It was a decent game tho. 2-1 aint too shabby.

Well, normally I'm not big on chrome,quilt , or those particular inlays, but this one works real nice, but the Koa CT is in my opinion THE #1 CT of all....unless I get one done...it'd be the same, but with a 1-2" blackburst. Think

I've all but given up on baseball this year, and I went to college here in MT, not even in the same league as Rutgers...lol

Fantastic specimen of purple! I love it (all except the gloss neck Razz ). Purple is one of those difficult colors to photograph, but I think you were able to capture it well on several of the shots.

I am surprised about the non-returnable purple back. To me, I just don't see that as a non-returnable option. So, 10+ months and counting until I get my grubby hands on it. Twisted

That raiders field is stupid and I wish the NFL would make them change it. A football field should be green and ONLY used for football. Especially in the NFL.

You REALLY like those CT's uh? LOL.
