The '89 catalog showed this interesting photo of guitarist Vinnie Vincent, which was taken from his video "Love Kills". Although the X100B stacks are obviously Carvin, less obvious is the one-off VVV Carvin that Vinnie is playing (VVV = Vinnie Vincent V). This evidently was created as a counterpart to the Jackson VVV's that Vinnie normally played, which were originally designed for guitar legend Randy Rhodes, but never went into production due to Randy's untimely death. The Jackson models were made from 1986 to 1989, and the above Carvin model was made sometime around 1988. There were subtle differences between the Carvin and the Jackson - noteably, the Jackson had a standard inline headstock and sharkfin inlays, versus the reverse inline headstock and block inlays on the Carvin.
