Carvin Guitars‎ > ‎


 Here is my Carvin Custom shop SH-675 guitar. Serial #106986.

This guitar is unique in its lightweight body, beautiful top, and extremely smooth action.

This SH-675 custom is one of my favorite guitars. It has the beautiful top made of flamed maple. It has 22 frets, with smooth ebony fretboard. This guitar projects beautifully, and has the MIDI-synth and piezo pickups. 

This is Carvin's newest designed guitar, and this is an excellent example of their workmanship. 

This guitar has been played but has always been kept in the studio, never gigged, and always kept in a smoke and pet-free environment. 

Carvin introduces our latest synth-access masterpiece! The SH675 Synth Access Carved Top Guitar takes all the features of our new SH645 semi-hollow double cutaway carved top guitar, and incorporates the acclaimed Graphtech Synth Access  electronics, as featured in Carvin's breakthrough NS1 & SH575 guitars. 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 SH675 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 SH675 exactly the way you want it, and be the proud owner of a totally unique instrument that will last you a lifetime. 

We start with hand-selected premium mahogany for the body and neck. All of our neck and fingerboard woods undergo a long conditioning process in our de-humidification chambers to remove any stress in the wood and prevent future warping or twisting. The body is carved out for maximum resonance while maintaining stability, and the neck is set deeply into the body for increased sustain and strength. The mahogany construction produces warm tones, perfect for a semi-hollow guitar. 

A beautiful AAAA flamed maple top is standard. But unlike most "archtop" style guitars, the SH675 features an actual carved top, not just a veneer that's bent into shape. The top starts out as a 2" thick piece of solid curly flamed maple. After it is bookmatched, not only is the top sculpted, but the underside of the top is also carved to follow the contour of the top, increasing the overall size of the sound chamber and improving the tonal characteristics of the instrument. You can choose from any of our deep triple step finishes, which are applied to the top and the matching headstock, and Carvin's innovative natural body binding process sets the finished top off from the natural mahogany back & sides. The back of the guitar and neck are finished in clear gloss to show the beauty of the mahogany. You can also choose an optional AAAA quilted maple top, flamed koa top, spalted maple top, or burled maple top, all available with matching headstocks. 

The SH675 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, birdseye maple or flamed maple fingerboards; dot, diamond, block or Signature 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 SH675 is built at Carvin's Custom Shop in San Diego, California.
