the Anniversary Series 
DC400A, introduced to celebrate Carvin's 50th anniversary in 1996, is based on Carvin's flagship solidbody guitar, the DC400. In addition to the premium options offered as standard features on the DC400, the DC400A has many of it's own exclusive upgrades. The DC400A represents over 60 years of experience that Carvin has in building the highest quality, USA-made instruments that are suitable for all playing styles at any level. With hundreds of available options, you can build your DC400A exactly the way you want it, and have an instrument that you'll be proud to play and own for years to come. The DC400A is constructed to the highest possible standards of quality and playability by Carvin's Custom Shop. 

DC400A 3 Piece Body
3-Piece Body
The DC400A features a 3-piece body with fully rounded sides and 5-piece maple/walnut neck-through design. The back of the body is alder, the top is premium AAAA flamed maple, and there is a thin layer of walnut in between. Alder is a high-quality tone wood used by many manufacturers because of its relative light weight and fine resonating tone. It's slightly darker in color than maple, which accentuates the DC400A's neck. Alder also has a subtle and attractive grain that looks great in any of Carvin's many finishes, including our optional deep triple step finishes. The deep triple step finishing process creates an almost three-dimensional effect on the top wood. For the ultimate in looks, you can upgrade your top with AAAA quilted maple. Additionally, the body edges fully radiused for additional playing comfort. 

The standard 5-piece maple/walnut neck adds to the already great looks of this instrument, and you can choose whether you want the neck to show on the top or not. All of our necks and fingerboards undergo a long conditioning process in our de-humidification chambers to remove any stress in the wood and prevent future warping or twisting. Carvin's dual-action, fully adjustable truss rod helps keep the neck straight and true, and allows you to set the action just the way you like it. The standard headstock is a 6-inline version, and you can also choose a traditional 3 X 3, V style, CT style, pointed inline or reversed design. The DC400A comes with no headstock overlay, allowing the 5-piece neck to show, but if you prefer, you can order a AAAA flamed maple headstock overlay, or you can choose AAAA quilted maple to match an optional quilted top. A 24K gold plated headstock logo adds just the right touch of class. You can personalize your DC400A with an engraved truss rod cover, adding to the uniqueness of the instrument. 

Smooth Neck Heel
Smooth Neck Heel
The DC400A has a standard 25" scale ebony fingerboard with genuine abalone block inlays, a 14" radius and 24 medium-jumbo nickel frets. Carvin offers many fingerboard options - more options than most manufactures offer for their entire guitar lines. You can choose from rosewood, maple or birdseye maple fingerboards; dot, diamond or block inlays in mother-of-pearl or genuine abalone; and fingerboard radii of 10" or 14". Carvin also offers a number of fretwire options, including jumbo, low-wide and stainless steel. Carvin's "Rapid Play" low action neck assures effortless playability throughout the entire fingerboard, while the smooth neck heel allows easy access all the way up to the 24th fret. 

You can choose from 4 different bridges. The FT6 hardtail bridge is standard, or you can select our "M" bridge with tune-o-matic bridge and strings fed through the body for additional sustain; a Wilkinson tremolo; or a Floyd Rose tremolo with or without locking nut. A Fishman acoustic bridge, in hardtail and Wilkinson tremolo configurations, is also offered in conjunction with the DC400A's standard active electronics. Premium Carvin locking tuners with a 19:1 ratio ensure you'll stay in tune no matter what your playing style is. Standard hardware is chrome, and you can upgrade to black or gold. 

S22 Metal Covered Humbuckers
Optional S22 Metal Covered Humbuckers
The DC400A comes equipped with a Classic Series C22B humbucker in the bridge, and a Classic Series C22J pickup in the neck position, which are custom wound with vintage plain enamel wire that brings out the harmonically rich tone and sustain of the guitar. All Carvin humbuckers have 11 polepieces per coil, which eliminates dropoff when bending strings. Controls consist of push/pull active/passive controls with passive master volume & tone and active master volume & cut/boost for bass & treble, 3-way pickup selector, 2 dual/single coil switches and a phase switch. For added warmth, try Carvin's new S22 Series metal covered pickups, which are available in chrome, black or gold to match your hardware. You can also choose from Carvin's M22 Series or Holdsworth H22 Series pickups. Standard pickups have black coils and bezels, but any combination of black or cream coils and bezels are available. For the ultimate in flexibility, add the Fishman piezo acoustic bridge to create mellow acoustic tones.
