Carvin is proud to receive a WIHO (“Wish I Had One”) Award from the staff at MusicPlayers.com for the CT624 24-Fret California Carved Top Guitar. Among many other things, they said:
“To say the Carvin CT624 played like a dream would almost be an understatement, as this guitar shipped with super-low action, and the Satin neck finish was light to the touch. Rock and metal players will love the speed of this neck (get a 14” radius for even sleeker shreddiness), while blues players will still find big string bends an easy thing thanks to the medium-jumbo frets.”

The staff of Vintage Guitar magazine reviewed Carvin’s SH550 Semi-Hollow Carved Top guitar in the new June 2012 issue, which will be available on newsstands in the coming weeks.
Among the comments from VG, they raved: “Plugged in with a full band, the SH550 shows its stuff; it cuts like nobody’s business, with big, bold lead tones. Dial up the gain and be prepared to rock – the SH550 can handle loads of overdrive and, again, will just jump through any mix. The S22 humbuckers are terrific and the coil-tap adds versatility.”
Try out the SH550 for yourself and see what Vintage Guitar and many players have learned – the SH550 combines amazing tone, jaw-dropping good looks, and Made in the USA engineering and craftsmanship along with affordable factory-direct pricing in a package that simply can’t be beat. You can build your SH550 exactly the way you want it, by choosing from an extensive list of premium body, neck, fingerboard and exotic top woods; finishes, inlays, fretwire, hardware, and much more.
