I have an early 80's CM140 & DC200, plus a newer bolt T. I'd like them to be gone through by a professional who either specializes, or is at the very least very familiar with Carvins. Anybody have suggestions?

Where are you located?

Also, honestly there isn't any magic sauce in Carvin guitars that any good tech can't handle. They are made the same way as other guitars.

Northern IL.

I realize all guitar brands are similar. But Carvin seems to be the red headed step child of the business. I think this is due to their direct sales approach, which has always been a threat to the brick and mortar music stores, big name brands, and their profit margins. Many people within the music industry tend to bag on Carvin products. This is why I am hoping to find a Carvin enthusiast who will give them proper treatment.

It's kind of like taking your vintage Mustang to a Corvette specialist. Sure he can bring your ole pony back into working order, but will he put in the same love and effort as he would his preferred brand of machine?

Any decent luthier is going to see that he's working on a decent guitar.
