You know what? I don't remember. It's been months since I last had a chance to use it. I know I definitely should have been using it, but I can't be 100% sure at this point. I rarely have to do anything with the amp except turn it on, I mostly just fiddle with my Pod. One more thing for the checklist I guess.

I'm not in your guys' league, but I've gotten some great deals on gear over the years.

The Goth series is a little cheaper, got for a bit under $300 w/o the case.

A lot of my gear was bought in those "how can I NOT buy it at that price?" moments.

I am looking at a Dean Z. Same kind of thing. I want something for drop tuning that does not have a tremolo.

Actually, that is exactly what I bought it for. For the price, I can't complain.

Now I just have to decide if I would rather buy the beat up trainwreck two piece basswood z for $129 or buy the mint mahogany flame top neck through with the case for $400.

I mean there are projects and then there is just throwing away money.

dammit - why can't I buy a nice fender body with a 22 fret neck with cheap pups so I can replace them? You can buy the cheap strat with 21 frets or the expensive one with 22 frets and expensive pups.

One good thing about Carvin, you can order exactly what you want - even send out your parts if you want, so you can get what you want the first time.

why do you need a 22 fret neck? i think yamahas have 22 fret necks. the intonation is better on 24 fret necks.

the other thing w/ carvin is that you spend $700 to have something worth $300 in resale.

Carvin stuff is friggin awesome if you are the second guy buying it. My Carvin Cabinet flats out pounds.

I also have a Yamaha from the early 1990's. Much better than many of the sought after Ibanez from the same era... but they get no respect.

i would recommend seeking a korean-made PRS SE w/ the stoptail for this. $300ish for a Santana SE or Tremonti SE. the korean made ones should have the "World Musical Instruments" info on the back, which is currently the best korean manufacturer. they are mahogany w/ a set neck. the necks on the santanas are pretty beefy (50's les paul-ish) but the tremonti is slightly thinner.

otherwise that ESP-made Kramer focus you stumbled across could just be kept in dropped D at all times :P

agile from rondo music are also a good value for a set neck mahogany.

That Kramer lasted about half a day...

I played a 7 string. I am getting one. It fits my style.

I found this one.

It is a Jackson DR7T

Nice~. Looking for a 7-stringer myself. Bit torn between the new and used markets though. Lots of Ibanez available in my price range in the used market, some LTDs in the new.

7 strings tank in value almost as badly as a carvin does when it comes to new to used depreciation.

i know you can get some pretty solid neck-thru jacksons for mega cheap.
