The Carvin guitar company was founded in 1946 in San Diego, California by Lowell Kiesel. Today Carvin are one of the largest musical instrument companies in the world and manufacture acoustic and electric basses and guitars, amplifiers and a host of other musical accessories.
Carvin differ from most other guitar brands in that they cut out the middle-man and sell directly to the customer (in the USA). This means that Carvin guitars are generally more affordable than similarly specced guitars from other companies.
Carvin Left Handed Guitars and Basses
The good news for left handed guitar players is that Carvin is by far and away one of the most lefty friendly brands out there. All of Carvin’s guitars are available to order left handed, and there is no upcharge for the privilege. A few of the more specialised options may not be available when speccing out a left handed model, but for the most part we can go nuts!
If you are in the States you can specify and order your guitar directly on the Carvin website through their order form. Carvin fans outside of the USA will need to order through an authorised dealer, which unfortunately means that prices are going to be much higher.
Carvin offers a huge range of a variety of different instruments and probably have you covered no matter what style of music or instrument you play. Head over to their website to check out what is on offer..
For reasons unknown to me the USA site has far, far larger galleries than the international ones, so I’d recommend visiting the site through a USA proxy to view the galleries that only the USA customers get to see. You can use a proxy site such as Fbsurf.net. This country specific forwarding malarkey is something I personally hate about the Carvin site. It just means that if someone links a guitar to you and you are in a different country to them you cannot view the link. I’m sure the website could be designed in a much more efficient, user-friendly manner.
