Carvin Releases California Carved Top C7 Guitars
Carvin, the masters of high end guitars, have released two stunning new seven string models
In response to numerous customer requests, Carvin has introduced their latest California Carved Top models, the CT7 and CT74 seven-string guitars. The CT7 is designed specifically for the dynamic and tonal range of a seven string instrument. It features an alder body and maple set-neck, along with a stunning 4A flamed maple top, which can be finished in an assortment of deep triple-step colors. Other exotic top woods are available, including 4A quilted maple, flamed koa, and flamed spalted maple. To help showcase the beautiful top, the CT7 comes standard with their natural body binding effect which exposes the natural edge of its exotic wood top.
The CT74 shares the premium features of the CT7, with a plain maple top standard. It can be finished in any of the Custom Shop's standard solid colors, optional translucent finishes or optional metallic solid colors. The finish is applied to the entire instrument, including the back.
Electronics on both models consist of a pair of Carvin premium A70 active humbuckers along with a single volume, single tone and 3-way pickup selector. Carvin's active pickup and electronic combination must be heard to appreciate how well they compliment the tone of the instrument's superior natural resonance. For those that prefer the simplicity of a passive pickup system, Carvin's new optional D26 passive humbuckers can be ordered.
