DC125C - Chrome EMG 81
originally bought from Nighttrain.Totally gone over and re worked since.
It plays like a champ.Has factory EMG wiring clip n play harness no Rob Lee custom wiring here.




Bolt kit Mahogany body-neck flame maple top
Air norton s neck- JYM middle- Bill and Becky Lawrence L500L bridge Hard wired with anodized solid copper wire.


SC90S recently refinished and re wired.My first Carvin found it`s way home.


$175 dollar used bolt kit score.I totally redid everything.Hand painted urban camo with nitro clear coat DiMarzio Crunch Lab and Liqufire set tuned drop C This bolt is world class! I have had many pro players play this and just stop in dis belief and just look at it like WTH is in this.If ever a guitar had mojo this is that one!

Not the fanciest Carvin guitars but I assure you they will hold there own or top many of the factory guitars.
I sold the Koa LB75 bass so I`m down to 4 Carvins.They all hold a place in my heart.

This collection rocks and is nowhere near "ghetto"! If anything, it is unique and full of one-of-a-kind guitars. Cool

Now where's that "Like" button?

So much has changed since I posted this.


This Pearl white DC125C now has a Dominger Custom pickups RAW in the bridge and I wired the mini switch to Series-SC-Parallel switching.Three sounds one humbucker.What a Humbucker it is! I replaced the Chrome EMG 81 and this is so much better sounding and the EMG was stellar.



The recovered SC90 Sports Dominger Whiskisippi neck/Custom `58 Bridge pickups and coil split mini switches. New aluminum Alco knobs.


The Carvin bolt now has a Dominger Flaming Pepper in the bridge.

I 100% agree with Bundy! I absolutely LOVE both "Bolts"
