This is my beautiful Carvin Custom shop SH-575 with Deep Tigers Eye over maple body. Serial #106994.

This guitar is "Like New". Literally just a few hours of playing time) and its totally and completely beautiful. It was always kept in a non-smoking, pet-free studio, never gigged, or taken outside.

The action is unbelievably smooth, with a 22-fret ebony fretboard with dot inlays. The neck is straight and true, and plays like butter. The deep tigers eye over flame body is stunning at every angle.
The guitar does it all – Carvin humbuckers with piezo, and 13 pin output.

The warm range of tones makes this guitar unique and just simply stunning.  Just look at the pictures.

This guitar has very few playing hours, with only slight evidence of such.  Of course it has all Carvin case candy, etc.  That is why it is fair to call her    “Like New” – after all, nearly any guitar in a music store has been played, perhaps quite a bit.

This SH575 will make an excellent addition to any collection, as well as give players a broad range of high-quality sounds from this extremely well made instrument.

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.

A mini-switch allows scrolling through MIDI patches.
