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 much better value for money when compared to similarly specced guitars from other companies. These guys are one of my personal favorite guitar brands.
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. With the exception of the V220, Ultra V, HH1 and HH2, 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!
The image above shows a tiny selection of what is currently available from Carvin, so please head over to their website to check out what is on offer. They offer a huge range of a variety of different instruments and probably have you covered no matter what style of music or instrument you play.
If you are in the States you can specify and order your guitar directly on the website through their order form. Carvin fans outside of the USA will need to order through an authorised dealer.
The Carvin website features huge galleries of each guitar in various different configurations and colors. I’d seriously recommend following them on Facebook as well to see their almost daily galleries of guitars fresh off the shop floor.
Customer service is also absolutely top notch. I contacted Carvin to see if I could get some large photos of specific guitars for the image above, and I have to say they went above and beyond trying to help me out (thanks Joel!).
It’s truly a southpaw’s paradise over at Carvin, and I absolutely suggest you consider them for your next guitar.
