electric guitars
Review for: Carvin AE185
Made in 1996
Purchase price of 900 USD
Rating: 4.0
Comments:I have been playing for about 20 years and I have owned a number of fine guitars. I currently have a nice collection including this guitar, a Fender Deluxe Fat Strat, (now my main guitar), a PRS Standard 24, a modified American Standard Tele, (now made into a Tele Plus w/ blue Lace sensors), a Les Paul Standard, a Lone Star Strat, a Taylor 414CE, and an Acoustic Tele. Overall I am very happy with this guitar. It's best suited as a main guitar for someone who must have a variety of sounds and wants them all in one guitar. It is not my main guitar, but a unique addition to my collection. If it were stolen, I would get another one. My favorite feature is the blend sound of the pickups, unless you have a guitar that has similar features, you will never get this sound. I also love the playability of the neck. Being a semi-hollow body, I had hoped it would give me some sort of Gibson ES-335 type vibe, but that's not what this is... Maybe with some new pickups? Maybe never? I think this is more of an electric guitar that has acoustic like features, rather than an acoustic with some electric features. It plays like a dream, is very light weight, and has held up well. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
