    Default NGD 1990-91 Carvin X220 Restoration project

    Hey guys over the course of a year I have been having this X220 fully restored. I picked up the body from Reverb last year and I had Jim Foote from Music Works graph all the missing wood pieces. He took the measurements from my trusty X220 that Harry sold me and did an amazing job reconstructing it. I then had Dan Lawrence refinish it in metallic black. Jim then put it back together. It cost me way more than I expected but man it plays and sounds great. Hope you guys love it.

    Dude! That is just awesome! I am sure everyone who reads this knows what a money pit project guitars can be, but, boy, is it all worth it when it comes together and sounds and plays every bit as amazing as you had hoped!

    What happened to that lower back horn, by the way? Was that intentionally removed or broken?
    Resident Schecter fanboy - EMG - Line 6 - NYXL - too much gain

    They guitar plays great and yea it was a huge money pit! Cost me as much as buying a new one! The lower horn and headstock was hacked off by the previous owner who sold it to the store I bought it from. I had Jim Foote graph the wing and the headstock.
