you could model them after your Carvin pickups ;)

No....never even entered my mind. I don't think I'd really want to anyway, just not my thing. :) besides the Carvin factory is like 20 minutes from my house. I've been a Carvin guy since the early 80's and I know some of the guys there....I'd feel sort of weird cloning their stuff....kinda like sleeping with your own sister! LOL!!! :lol:

Gibson put 'em in there, and that's good enough for me. I'm liking the alnico p/u alot, probably the 5 the most, but I don't have any . . . yet.
