The Craig Chaquico Signature Series CC275 semi-hollow
acoustic/electric guitar made it's debut in 2001, and is based on our popular AC275 acoustic/electric. Carvin Guitars and Craig Chaquico have a relationship dating back to the early 1980s, when Craig was often seen playing an V220 or DN612 on MTV with Jefferson Starship. The CC275 is Craig's main guitar of choice in his second career as an acclaimed new age/jazz guitarist. Craig's debut solo CD, Acoustic Highway, was honored in 1993 as Billboard's #1 New Age Indie and Adult Contemporary album of the year. Acoustic Planet, his follow-up 1994 release, received a Grammy nomination for Best New Age album and reached #1 on the Billboard charts the first week it was released. Craig was voted #1 Best Pop Instrumental Guitarist by Guitar Player Magazine's most recent Readers' Poll and later named to Jazziz Magazine's exclusive list of Top 100 Jazz Guitarists in History. Craig has over 20 gold records to his credit, many of which were recorded using Carvin Guitars gear. His CC275 acoustic/electric proved immediately popular among guitarists that wanted the sound of an acoustic with the functionality of an electric. The CC275 is loaded with features generally only found in boutique instruments, but because we sell direct to you, you don't have to pay a boutique price. And with hundreds of available options, you can build your CC275 acoustic/electric exactly the way you want it, and be the proud owner of a
totally unique instrument that will last you a lifetime.
