Carvin DC127 Reviews
Great guitar for the money to buy used. I don't really know why their used value is so low compared to the new prices but the guitar itself is amazingly well built. Everything is quality parts and their guitars are solid. I guess maybe there are just so many strat/super strat guitar companies out there and this one just didn't seem to take off c...

Not many people think about Carvin when they think of a high end custom guitar but these guitars are some of the best out there.

I agree with other user and professional reviewers who marvel at how Carvin can produce such quality instruments offered at price points necessarily low to maintain some market share. My Strat HSS w/Sienna sunburst cost me $900 new in mid-2004 -- haggled like crazy with the boys at Guitar Center to get that price. To me that was quite a bargain ...

I have continued to search for the perfect guitar. Every time I come home from the guitar store, I am more in love with this instrument. [read more on Audiofanzine]Paul rated this unit on 2002-01-11.
