David McDowell's Collection
Carvin Forums ID: ROCKCRUE

This is a cool and varied collection, consisting of a couple of interesting one-of-a-kind models.

First up, David's 2010 AC175 acoustic/electric (far left and below). A stunning example of thinking outside the box on a traditional design. It's finished in Sapphire Blue on flamed maple with the deep triple-step upgrade, and most noteably, it has a matching pointed angled headstock. The headstock really sets this one off, taking a conventional A/E design and turning it into an A/E shred machine. Other features include a flamed maple fingerboard with abalone dots, which also adds to the uniqueness of the instrument, along with a maple neck & body, stainless steel frets, tung-oiled neck black hardware & straplocks.

Next, David's 2004 DC727C (second from left & below). This is truly a one-of-a-kind instrument, as it was made by Carvin specifically for the 2004 NAMM Show in Anaheim. The options are relativly straight-forward, which an alder body, maple neck, ebony fingerboard and Floyd Rose tremolo with chrome hardware. What really sets this one apart is the amazing paint job Carvin did for the NAMM Show. Very cool & unique!

David's Bolt (second from right) is finished in Copper Head Metallic, with a birdseye maple fingerboard with no inlays and stainless steel frets. A C22B bridge pickup completes the classic look.

Last is David's Cobalt C250 (far right). This dreadnought acoustic has a mahogany body and neck, and a spruce top.
