    I was wondering if anyone has heard of Canvas and whether it is a good brand of guitars?

    I got a canvas cvf-10 for my b-day. It was a lp junior copy. It sounded ok but I took it back. I ordered a Douglas Shadow Pro CSB

    I've got a Canvas semi-hollow that's a great little player. The pickups are alnico with medium vintage output, around 8.5k and sound OK. The neck is really nice after a fret level and plays very smoothly. Keeps in tune well. Mid-level hardware on it. I'm looking to change from the black trim to gold or chrome, plus a pixkup change of some sort. Haven't figured it out yet. It sounds nice enough as-is so that I'm not in a big hurry.

    just leaving your mama's bedroom!
    White Bridge Music sells Canvas guitars. I've never owned a Canvas,
    but I did buy a Stadium SG from them that was beyond excellent! and
    they are real nice people too....

    White Bridge is where I bought mine from. Ditto on the nice people thing. When my Canvas arrived, UPS had managed to break one of the tuners off. I contacted White Bridge about it and no questions asked, they sent a new tuner in the mail immediately.

    I've got one of their store-branded Teles, too. Nice Korean guitar for a Chinese price!

    I wrote the two reviews he links to from Harmony Central. One for the Canvas and one for the Tele. Unfortunately my ISP crashed and lost the pics I had posted for the reviews.
