For $1200-1500 your best bet would be a Carvin.
Yeah I thought of that. Might do that.
That would definitely be your fastest bet, and Carvin does build some nice guitars
Yeah, I'll vouch for Carvin. I picked up a 7 string a few weeks ago (I'll do a NGD when I get around to it) and was blown away by the quality of the build. I have no idea why you don't see/hear more about Carvin, because in that price range it is definitely the best I have played. But, you're pretty much limited to color choice with Carvins. One day I'd love to do a full on custom, so I can get exactly what I want, but quality wise, I'm really impressed with Carvin. Oh, and the pickups they use on the 7 strings are plenty hot for metal. I was concerned, but this sounds very similar to the JB in my Jackson 6 string.
Mike is cooler than 10 polar bears in a walk in freezer.
And the guitars he builds are freaking incredible.
Like the others have said, comparing builders of Mike's or Rob's ilk, is not really a plausible question. Thats apples to oranges. Who's hotter, Prime years Salma Hayek or Catherine Zeta-Jones....Ummm shit......dunno...cannot...compute......
Lots of us have all posted our experiences over the years with a large scope of various customs - definitely use search and you'll find the goodies.
Salma Hayek, hands down...
That unibrow gets me every time.
I have one, six string, chambered, curly maple top, havent put pickups in it yet, but acoustically, it sings like a bird. His inlay work is incredible.
Built great guitars, fucked over some good people.
You couldn't you wait 3 more days for the perfect 10 year necro-bump?
10 YEARS MAN
Old guy I worked with years ago introduced me to them... said they didn't call Alvin Lee "The Fastest Guitar in the West" for no reason. The Woodstock performance of "I'm Going Home" rips.
Please, lord, let this turn into a “10 years” meme thread.
