Due to overwhelming requests from our customers, Carvin is pleased to announce the new DC7X extended-scale 7-string guitar. The Custom Shop has taken the extended baritone scale of the popular DC800 eight-string model, and combined that with the sleek features of the DC700, to create an entirely new instrument that satisfies the playability of an ERG with the lower range of a seven-string.
Neck-through design, an alder body with Eastern hard rock maple neck and Hipshot™ bridge provide unsurpassed playability and sustain for days. Like all Carvin Custom Shop instruments, you can choose from a massive assortment of finishes; premium neck, body, fingerboard and top woods; inlays; fretwire and much, much more. Carvin's innovative "M" Bridge or a Floyd Rose tremolo can also be selected. The DC7X comes equipped with Carvin’s direct-mount A70N & A70B pickups, with industry-standard size pickup routing for easy swapping. Controls consist of a master volume and passive tone control with a 3-way lever-style pickup selector. The DC7X has superior tone definition because our active electronics are built on a full size circuit board utilizing full size components which allow us to achieve superior tone and lower signal to noise ratio. This breakthrough in active electronics technology eliminates the thin, over-compressed sound generally associated with actives. Additionally, for fans of passive tone, you may also order a pair of Carvin’s Classic D26 humbuckers with passive electronics.
The Custom Shop can build your new DC7X exactly the way you want it, creating a 7-string masterpiece that will blow you, your bandmates and your audience away. Whether you’re an experienced 7-string player, or looking to take your sound and performance to a new level, Carvin’s DC7X is the ideal axe to get you there.
