  • NGD needs patching

    I picked up a nice 7 string Carvin off Ebay, a pretty mahogany with 5-piece neck through (with walnut stringers) Its got a nice OFR in black (I've always wanted one) but as was Carvins thing for a while, no locking nut and Sperzel type tocking tuners.
    Whole guitar is raw tung oil.

    The neck is thinner with ebony with side dots only and SS jumbos with ZERO wear. Thats a custom wood cover made by Bob's custom Plates, rosewood knobs but...

    Old owner simply HAD to move the volume knob ... looks to have cut hole with a rusty corkscrew??

    Gonna try matching a mahogany plug and starting top over, will be adding a top edge bevel like Abasi guitars have and will carve out the back of the lower cutaway to accommodate my overly large hand..
    I plan to take it down to bare wood and refinish with 5-7 coats of Libron finishing oil and and Renaissance Wax, with or without a red base tint.

    First guitar I've bought since 1991! That one was also a Carvin (I still have) and almost exactly 1/2 the cost of this one, adjusted for inflation they cost the same.

    That's a sweet looking axe,........ except for the "custom work".

    Probably tough to get a plug to match. Maybe you can carefully cut out a piece big enough to plug holes from underneath one of the covers on the back? It'd then be the same wood and grain pattern.
