    Lol, unless something miraculous (like a 7 string headless or 7 string bolt) comes out of Namm, I only have one more to buy. For the last two years I have been planning a CT7 purchase, candy red metallic, zebrawood board, black limba neck/body. Both times I was offered something I couldn't refuse, the SCB7 prototype, and the GP DC7X.. I will have that guitar..
    And probably a Legacy 3, and an X100B.. I think I have a problem..

    Is that a bare knuckle? Was it a drop in replacement? I've heard that covered BKPs don't fit the Carvin routes?

    On the DC600? Yes, BKP Juggernauts. Carvin changed their pickup cavities recently, so they're drop in.

    Thanks man! I'm just waiting for NAMM to see what the new offerings are because Carvin is awesome to work with. I really want an HH2 Holdsworth though!

    Yea man, I've heard and seen nothing but good things from Carvin and their customers. I'm planning to order a DC600 this summer and take it from there. If they release any headless 7/8 string guitars after NAMM my wallet will take a beating.

    I'm planning to get one DC700H in satin aquaburst
    but just a question for the experst...
    does the finish wears polish fast?
    and anyone know if schaller locking tuners are a direct swap?

    Can't answer your other questions, but trust me that the Carvin locking tuners are top notch.. I absolutely love them way more than Schaller or Sperzels.. Only comparable is my Hipshot Open-Gear Locking tuners. Just very great precision and smoothness to them.
