-SH575 BM

I'm sorry, this guitar is not for sale. 
This is my Burl Maple, Semi-hollow body Carvin SH575. Serial #108304.

This guitar is essentially brand new (literally just a few hours of playing time) and its totally and completely beautiful.  Besides that, it really plays great.

The action is good, the set neck is a 22 fret Birdseye maple fret board with side dot inlays only and tung-oil finish, and the body is a semi-hollow Burl maple gloss finish.

This guitar has it all. It has two humbucker pick ups, two quarter inch outputs (one for the two humbucker electric pick ups and one for the acoustic piezo pick up), as well as a 13-pin MIDI output.

This guitar has so very few playing hours, it is as close to brand spanking new as any guitar could possibly be.  Of course it has all Carvin case candy, etc. After all, nearly any guitar in a music store has been played, perhaps quite a bit.

Carvin introduces a true Carved Top Semi-Hollow Custom Shop masterpiece. TheSH575 Synth Access Carved Top Guitar model is the same as the SH550 with the addition of the acclaimed Graphtech Synth Access electronics, as featured in Carvin's breakthrough NS1 guitar. Simply connect a guitar synth of your choice and you'll be adding orchestras, flutes and virtually any instrument sound to your electric guitar tone. This unique design gives you acoustic, electric and synth capabilities all in one instrument! The SH575 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 SH575 exactly the way you want it, and be the proud owner of a totally unique instrument that will last you a lifetime. 

The SH575 features a standard 25" scale ebony fingerboard with genuine abalone dot inlays, a 12" radius and 22 medium-jumbo nickel frets. You can choose from a wide assortment of neck options, including 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 22nd fret. The fully-adjustable dual action truss rod allows you to set the action exactly the way you want it. The standard headstock is our 3 X 3 CT-style, as found on our California Carved Top Series, and is adorned with a 24K gold plated Carvin logo. 

The standard "S" bridge consists of a tune-o-matic bridge for perfect intonation and a stop tailpiece. Sperzel™ locking tuners ensure your SH575 will stay in tune, no matter what your playing style is. Standard hardware is chrome, with gold or black optional. 

Our new S22J/S22B metal covered pickups, which are harmonically rich, with deep, defining tone and sustain are standard on the SH575. The metal covers can be ordered in chrome, gold or black to match your hardware, and the standard black bezels can be upgraded to cream. Electronics consist of a master volume and tone control, with a 3-way pickup selector located on the upper bout. The push-pull tone control doubles as a coil splitter, allowing dual to single coil operation on the S22 pickups. The Graphtech Synth Access Module consists of stacked concentric volume for MIDI & piezo, stacked concentric mid cut/boost and mid sweep, and stacked concentric bass & treble cut/boost. A mini-switch allows scrolling through MIDI patches. Outputs include dual 1/4" jacks (one for humbuckers, one for piezo) and a 13-pin Hexaphonic MIDI-compatible output, which is compatible with controllers such as the Roland GR33™, VG88™ and VBass™, Roland GI-10™, Axon 100™ and others.
