I am considering getting yet another Carvin. This time a CT624 with Floyd Rose with the Graph Tech acoustic saddles. Still debating what woods to choose. May just keep it standard mahogany with maple top. I may opt for the Claro Walnut top. If I go with the flame maple top it will be the same color as the bolt, moss green, something about that color in the sun is just spectacular to look at.

They used to have a few more in this style. I really liked them.

The guitar they show is almost exactly the way I'd want one to look with a neck-through.

I'm just really used to thin U and slim D necks. A C neck might take time to get used to......

You can opt for the thinner neck profile. I have one from 1996. Awesome axe.

I just picked up my third Carvin- a recent SH645. Like my DC150, it has stainless steel frets on an ebony fretboard and plays great. I just removed the treble bleed caps and rewired it like a '50s Les Paul. This makes the guitar clean up better with a germanium Fuzz Face and cranked non-master volume amp.

I'll post pics once I put it down.
