    Duncan Jason Becker Perpetual Burn pickups. This from the latest Carvin catalog - looks like they get released in February.

    His original Numbers guitar wasn't a Carvin, was it?

    I think it's awesome that they are making a jason becker sig but I find the guitar to be butt ugly. Whatever, Jason Becker played some epic stuff on the original!

    I wish it were a Peavey, though, since I grew up playing a used T-60 and I always thought it was so cool that a known player used the same brand. This was before Eddie (and even Adrian Vandenberg) played Peavey's.

    Nothing against Carvin (I own two Carvin guitars). I gotta say, they are making things I want these days. :)

    very cool. I always like the "Fischer Price" look of that guitar.

    Yeah, even their "regular" headstock would have been better than that one-

    BECKER!!! Sweet guitar. It's cool that Carvin is adding his Perpetual Burn pickups as well.... I also really dig his earlier one.. .the neck through blue one. If you haven't, take a little time to check out his movie "jason becker, not dead yet". (can rent or buy it on iTunes) If you don't find a way to improve your own situation after watching that, there's something wrong with you... Huge inspiration as a player ended up becoming a huge inspiration as a person...
