I always thought Carvin was missing the boat with their "one size fits all" neck approach. Especially for a company that trades so heavily on customization. If I could order a Carvin with my choice of body style AND a choice of neck profiles I would have given one a try long ago. Because I don't doubt the quality. Yes, the Holdsworth model sounds like it may have a neck more to my liking, but I'm stuck with that body style. In all fairness, it's probably one of the reasons they can keep their prices relatively low. Still, I think they're losing a lot of potential business. I'm not the only one who prefers a big 50s style V-neck. So if they're going to advertise themselves as a "custom shop", give us some choices.
