cs6m.jpgSan Diego, CA - Carvin has introduced the CS6 California Single guitar. This single cut-away guitar has a number of ergonomic and tone enhancing designs that enhance the overall playability of this instrument as well as improve its build quality and longevity.

Carvin's new CS6 California Single guitar is constructed of premium Mahogany in both the neck and body. This instrument features a premium 20 mm thick Curly Flamed Maple carved top with a natural binding effect. There is also a matching figured Maple headstock overlay. Both the carved top and the headstock overlay have been hand selected and book matched by seasoned luthiers in Carvin's own California Custom Shop. The guitar's book matched top, for example, starts with a 2-inch thick piece of solid Curly Flamed maple, after which it is sawed to form a two-piece book matched set-creating a mirror image on the two halves of the guitar's top. The instrument's stained colors feature a triple-step finishing process for extra depth.

The new CS6 features Carvin's Rapid Play Neck that has been designed with unique set-in construction. The California Single has Carvin's exclusive "heel-less" design for access-all the way to the 22nd fret. The result is a guitar that is considerably easier to play. The guitar's neck actually sets 5 inches into the body and extends underneath the neck-resulting in amazing sustain and stability.

The new California Single features a 25-inch scale ebony fingerboard with Abalone dot inlays and 22 medium jumbo frets. This outstanding guitar includes Sperzel locking tuners along with tone enhancing C22J and C22B Classic Humbucker pickups. The new CS6 features a Master Volume control and 3-way pickup selector. The guitar's push-pull tone control offers single coil operation for each pickup or both pickups Humbucking together.

As is the case with other Carvin guitars, the new California Single is highly configurable. Guitarists can enjoy four different bridge selections from Tune-O-Matic to Floyd Rose. In addition to an optional Quilted Maple top, the CS6 can be further configured with options such as Abalone block inlays, stainless steel frets, one's choice of various fingerboard radii, as well as the new Carvin S22 metal covered pickups to match the selected hardware.

Mark Kiesel, Vice President of Carvin Corporation, commented on the new CS6 California Single guitar, "Our new California Single is a true player's instrument that is highly configurable. Customers who visit our guitar builder on the Carvin website will find upwards of 50,000 available configurations for customizing their instrument. This guitar has a great feel to it that makes playing a pleasure, it offers exceptional build quality, and has a positively beautiful appearance. I'm confident guitarists of all musical styles will find the new CS6 to be a ‘must have' instrument for their collection."

The new Carvin CS6 California Single guitar has a factory direct base price of $1,479. Carvin's normal Custom Shop build time is 6 weeks, though longer build times may occur based upon demand. Customers are encouraged to check when ordering
