Offered for sale:

Used c1996 Carvin DC127T serial number 65522.

This guitar is in good to very condition, neck and frets are fine. Cosmetically there are a small group of dings through the finish on the top, some marks and nicks and belt rash about the body. Showing some playing time and enjoyment.

A new Wilkinson replacement vibrato bar is included.

Carvin states:

“This remarkable sounding instrument is deep and clear with nice stringiness and spark. Notes sound round and harmonically detailed in humbucker mode, and the single coil selections are bright and punchy. The DC127T is one chunky and intense beast in super high-gain conditions, and even the most heavily saturated chords retain definition. A very versatile guitar that can easily cover rock, blues, or country duties.”

Imperial Guitar says:

This particular instrument is optioned with Tung Oiled Koa (TK), Koa Headstock (KPH), Rounded Body Sides (RB), and the Wilkinson Tremolo Bridge(T).

Carvin instruments have always been interesting to say the least, they offer wide ranging options for their designs and the company has a unique direct marketing approach with their selling and distribution. That being said, this is a really nice guitar. The Koa options and rounded body makes this guitar even better. Nice guitar, nice price!

Hard-shell case included.

“We carefully inspect every instrument when we buy it and bring it up to our standards before we offer it for sale. We also do a full set up before we ship. If you decide to purchase this guitar, please let us know what gauge strings you prefer.”

*Please note: we do our best giving descriptions of used pieces. We have found it impossible to describe every mark on an instrument or amp that is not in the "mint" category. Also, what's important to you may not be important to someone else. For example, you may say, "I don't care what it looks like as long as it plays or sounds well." Another person may say, "Body cosmetics are very important to me so tell me about every scratch, nick and blemish." So, please ask the questions that are most important to you. If you ask they will be answered. They are free and there's no limit. Additional photos can also be made available.

This is a specific item that is also being offered for sale in our brick & mortar location. It is possible that it has just been sold. Please ask if it is still available before purchasing.

*It is our policy to require a signature on delivery of all musical instruments. Please let us know if you prefer no signature required when ordering or we will automatically require a signature.
