Well, carvin's active EQ actually has an internal pot you can adjust with one of those tiny screwdrivers that controls the output level of the active signal. I suppose a volume cut could be accomplished by setting the active EQ level fairly high so that when you engage the active EQ, the volume goes...

No need to alter the instrument. It drops right in.

As for the 127 on his web page, it's just a standard 127 with a pair of coil tap switches and his logo on the headstock.

I'm stll amazed that people can honestly justify paying over $2000 for a JEM. They're phenomenal guitars but with some Evo pickups, I'd take a neck through RG or J custom any day over a jem and pocket that extra $400 or so. Or even just a high end Prestige RG for under a grand. Playing both the JEMs...

I found that one from the NAMM oddities web page. I don't have the address but I'm sure a google search could find it.

There was also this one :shock: :oops:

Yeah it's just a standard carvin 7 string. The volume knob is a decible boost that creates that distortion you hear because it creates a huge push to the preamp section of his amp that drives the tubes really hard. It's the same principle as a clean boost overdrive pedal that doesn't really use dist...

Him and marty friedman use the X100B amps. Along with their guitars. Becker used the DC200 guitars and Marty used the X220 guitars.

His carvins also have a clean boost switch that the volume pot activates via a push/pull operation. Similar to the EMG afterburner (which it may be. I'm not sure) but he uses it for solo boosts sometimes.

:shock: Great scott Marty!!! http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v212/fastredponycar/Guitar/guitar_design.jpg I'd have it hooked into my signature amp which would deliver 1.21 Gigawatts of power needed to essentially rock your socks off.

Carvin builds em. They're just basic 7 string models with a Tmac logo on it and something like the EMG afterburner installed as a volume knob. That's pretty much it. It's virtually identical to the regular production guitars.

Thanks guys. I've talked to a few other people and I REALLY like the clairity and definition that the EVO's have, plus I love the uniqueness that the Evo's have sound wise. I'm a lead player and quite a few people have suggested them right after I say that. I've got a V3 amp which has a pretty impre...

How would the Dimarzio Evo's sound in this guitar?

Hey guys, I've got a Carvin C66 in the mail headed my way. It's got a set of the C22 carvin pickups which aren't bad actually but not for the heavy stuff. More for classic rock and blues than anything so I was curious as to how the Dimarzio Evo's would sound in it. The body is made of alder and has ...

I actually almost bought a 101B back in December. I had the cash but practical thinking got the best of me. My wife's car needed work and we're saving for a house so a $3900 amp really wouldn't have helped the situation so I settled for a Carvin V3 and am really happy. I'll get an ecstacy one day th...

yeah that's one of the best flames I've ever seen. The less verticle grain under the flame, the better. I'm really dissapointed when I see those $3000 PRS's with hideous grain showing under the flame :roll: Same with the Gibsons.
