L'avis de Arbaal"Excellent"

Carvin DC127
Manche traversant, touche ébène
Vibrato Kahler
2x Humbucker Carvin
Selecteur 5 positions
+ Split micros.

Made in USA of course.

J'aurais préféré avoir un Floyd Rose (plus facile pour changer les pièces que Kahler), mais vu l'âge de la gratte, c'est Kahler !

UTILISATION

Excellente ergonomie, prise en main facile

SONORITÉS

Typée rock, cette gratte n'est pas en reste en son clair, avec un son qui peut être très rond, mais aussi très clair selon les splits micros, etc...

Le sustain est au rendez-vous, cette guitare joue la compétition avec mon Ibanez J-custom, la qualité de lutherie est bien présente et se fait sentir.

En son saturé, son grain est très équilibré, une petite bosse dans les mids, moins tranchant qu'une gratte en EMG, mais je préfère ainsi, le micro manche ressemble à un Paf pro, le bridge à un ToneZone avec moins de basse ronde mais plus bas médium.

AVIS GLOBAL

Au vue de l'échange que j'ai fais pour acquérir cette gratte, j'ai fais une affaire excellente en terme de rapport qualité/valeur de l'instrument.

Carvin DC127
Good ole' Carvin. Made in the USA. 24 frets, ebony fretboard, Wilkinson tremolo. C22N and C22B, volume, tone, 3 way toggle switch. Mini toggles for coil tapping. Sperzel locking tuners. Sweet mahogany neck with Tung-oil finish. I also had a mahogany body model with a reverse headstock. Very fast. This guitar is built to burn.

UTILIZATION

The neck has a GREAT feel. Overall "C" shape neck... not super thin like an Ibanez Wizard... but every bit as fast. Maybe with even a greater range of control for serious bends.. more thumb pivot. Access to upper frets is without parallel. Smooth as butter and prices that compete with imports. Very balanced instrument.. comfortable weight distribution for long sets. This guitar does get a nice sound right out of the box, but I did change the bridge pickup out. More in "Sounds"

SOUNDS

This guitar should be able to suit anyone's style except for maybe die-hard Jazz guys. (and gals ) It can pull off ANYTHING. Funk, Metal, Blues, Hard rock, etc. Perfect for studio use. It CAN do jazz as well... make no mistake! It just may not suit someone who lives for that semi hollow body sound. You can achieve loads of styles, and the coil taps increase your options greatly. Really decent single coil approximations... not exactly Strat-like.. but close enough.. maybe even brighter! I needed a guitar that had a little hotter bridge pickup, and the C22 would have to be my least favorite aspect of this guitar. Not a great pickup. Not horrible... but a bit lifeless and low output.. hard to describe. The M22T pickup from Carvin is great.. don't know why they came up with this thing. Anyway... switched it out for a Seymour Duncan JB (which coil taps on a mahogany bodied guitar very, very well.) and had much more gain. The C22N pickup is nice... I guess they are trying to get a 50's guitar sound. Not sure it was a success, but the neck pickup was worth keeping. Taps nicely.. and responds to cleans extremely well. Distortions..mmm.. well, certainly good enough. Quiet. Not super fat with a lot of distortion, but it can hang.
Hard to pick a favorite sound.. the cleans are very nice.. but with the JB... it definitely lends itself to shredding.

OVERALL OPINION

Had this guitar for about 3 years.. decided to go a bit more the "Classic" route.. I own a lot more Strats, Tele's, Gibson's, etc. And yes, I still have a few straight up metal type guitars.. but have gotten rid of most of my "All-in-one" type guitars. Loved the versatility.. but aesthetically, this was not really my cup of tea. Not really a metal guitar..(i.e. Jackson) and not really a classic ( Strat for instance ) and I guess I need more black and white options for my music gear. I have owned many guitars.. and yes, if I had unlimited resources and room to keep a bunch more guitars then I would own one of these.
My strongest feeling about the Carvin is that if you can afford ONE guitar.. get this one. It can literally do it ALL in one guitar. The mainstay is versatility.. and you definitely get the most bang-for-your-buck with this axe! Champagne features on a beer budget. This guitar is technically (way) better than any Les Paul or Strat... it just does not have their vibe or status. If that does not matter to you... you should definitely consider this guitar!

L'avis de Hatsubai (contenu en anglais)"Carvin's most popular neck-thru"

Carvin DC127
Carvin is well known for building affordable neck-thru guitars at great prices. This one is probably their most popular model due to its features and affordability. The one I played had the following specs:

Alder body
25'' scale length
Maple neck-thru with an ebony fretboard, 12'' radius and tung oil finish
Fixed bridge
Sperzel locking tuners
Two humbuckers
One volume, one tone, 3-way pickup selector, 2 dual/single coil switches

UTILIZATION

There are a lot of features packed into this model. First of all, the fit and finish is top notch. The fretwork is good, and the neck feels great. It's not too thick and not too thin. The back of the neck feels great with the tung oil finish, too. The real cool thing about this is that it has switches to select between split coil sounds. This helps make the guitar way more versatile than just a normal two humbucker guitar. The Sperzel locking tuners are the icing on the cake.

SOUNDS

This is where it's a bit hit or miss. I'm not really a huge fan of the Carvin stock pickups. They sound decent, but there are better ones out there on the market. The guitar was a touch bright since it was alder with a maple neck-thru construction and an ebony fretboard, but if you like the bite, you should really enjoy this wood combo. It's the standard of most neck-thru construction guitars, anyway. I'm just more of a mahogany kind of guy. The split sounds were great with clean tones. They helped make this guitar way more versatile than normal.

OVERALL OPINION

If you're looking for one of the best guitars for the money, check out eBay for one of these guitars. You'll get a crazy deal on something that's made in the USA, has great fretwork, is affordable and sounds good. You might want to do a pickup swap, but try them out first. Maybe you'll like them. I know my friend really enjoys these pickups.

L'avis de wwhhhaatt (contenu en anglais)"My #1"

Carvin DC127
Alder body with mahogany wings
solid maple neck
24 fret ebony fret board
jumbo frets
original Floyd rose
1 volume/ 1 tone
coil taps on each pickup
3 way selector
Sperzel locking tuners
unfinished neck

Made in U.S.A.


UTILIZATION

For me this guitar is just about perfect. The fret board feels great and there is absolutely no heel at the neck joint which makes access to all 24 frets a breeze. The unfinished neck is much more comfortable than a painted one especially since I live in Florida and mixing the humidity with a painted neck can sometimes get a nasty sticky feeling. The placement of the controls are good for me because I tend to strum pretty wildly and these stay out of the way although I would like the selector just about closer to the bridge. The weight is also great as it's not too heavy but not so light that it feels like a toy and it resonates really well even with a Floyd rose on it. The Floyd rose also retains tuning incredibly well.

SOUNDS

My main amp is a Framus cobra 100 watt tube amp and I also sometimes use a H&K Triamp or Peavey 5150. I use lots of effects and play a mix of metal/rock/prog

When I first bought this guitar I figured I would be replacing the pickups. I figured right. The pickups were not terrible for rock tones or clean sounds but they did not give me what I wanted for the majority of the stuff I play. As of now it has a set of Bare knuckles in it with a nail bomb bridge and cold sweat neck. I have tried the Duncan invader (flubby and shrill) EMG 81/85 (one trick pony) the Dimarzio tone zone ( good for rock) and some others I can't think of right now.

With the Bare knuckles I get exactly what I want in a guitar. On the bridge the bass is tight but not completely unforgiving, the top end is just right so it cuts through without getting shrill, chords are well defined even under distortion, and single note runs have a thick sound. I only use the neck pickup for clean and the occasional lead which also sound great. Clean chords are thick with a nice top end and lead work on the distortion channel has that nice fluid sound. I could go for a little more high end on the neck pickup but after all the pickups I've tried I think I'll settle here.

OVERALL OPINION

I bought this guitar almost ten years ago without ever trying one which was probably kind of silly but it turned out great. there have been times where I thought a knew guitar would takes it's spot as number one but as soon as I pick the Carvin back up it's like being home again. The only thing I sometimes wish it had was a 25 1/2" scale length because I love that about my ESPSc6. Who knows how that would actually feel on this guitar though. My only real beefs with the guitar were the electronics seemed a little cheap (they did not fail before I changed them) and the pickup mounting rings do not work with other manufacturers pickups. I bought it knowing I would swap the electronics anyways so it's not a big deal and I know other people who have bought Carvins on my recommendation and love the pickups. It's all personal preference. I'm contemplating buying a California carved now too since they make them with 24 frets now.
