Electronics on both models consist of two Carvin premium A70 active humbuckers along with a single volume, single tone and 3-way pickup selector. For players who prefer the simplicity of a passive pickup system, Carvin’s new optional D26 passive humbuckers can be ordered. Other features, including an ebony fingerboard with abalone dot inlays, medium-jumbo frets and Sperzel locking tuners compliment the CT7 and CT74. Carvin’s “M” Bridge, with tune-o-matic bridge and strings fed through the body, is standard; a Floyd Rose tremolo is also offered. Dozens of Custom Shop options, including body and neck woods, finishes, fingerboards, fretwire, inlays and more allow customers to create a unique instrument suited to their playing style and personal tastes.
