From my reverb listing:
Up for sale is my Carvin DC727. Unfortunately the kiesel/carvin board shut down and I no longer have the full specs. The finish is a translucent blue over a quilted maple top, with a purple and black burst on the edge. The purple is extremely hard to see. No dings or chips anywhere on this guitar.

Licensed Floyd rose
DiMarzio Imperiums (have the original carvin pickups)
Stainless steel frets
Maple neck I believe. One piece
Comes with G&G hardshell case.
Active preamp system

Couple of minor issues for full disclosure.

First - dimarzios don't fit in carvin routes. I had to shave down the baseplates to get them in and they are jammed in TIGHT. They will come out, but adjusting them is hard to do. Ideally a luthier should expand the routes for regular pickups.

Second - the output jack is finicky. I haven't replaced it, but I will include a new jack with the guitar that someone can install. The one in the guitar works, but it is loose around the cable.

Third - one of the mini toggles broke awhile back. I fixed it and it works now, but it may need to be replaced in the future.

Open to trades for other guitars as well.
